Talbot surrendered a two goal lead and will definately rue the raft of chances they missed throughout the game. Mark Shankland put Talbot ahead after 13 minutes with a 25 yard thunderbold and two minutes later Gordon Pope hooked a volley high into the net from eight yards. Bo’ness who had landed with eleven players and a substitute keeper pulled a goal on the stroke of half time when a shot deflected off Craig McCracken and past Leishman.

The second half had Talbot bossing most of the game with no end result and as the game drew to a close Willie Lyle had the misfortune to see another shot go past Leishman for the second own goal.
