Pumpherston ex­tend lead

West Lothian Courier - - Sports - Pumpherston...4 Craigroys­ton ...... 0

Pumpherston ex­tended their lead at the top of the South Divi­sion to five points af­ter their vic­tory over Craigroys­ton was cou­pled with Ed­in­burgh United suf­fer­ing their first de­feat of the sea­son.

A goal from pro­lific striker Ally McRitichie, who is tal­ly­ing more than a goal a game this term, were added to by Derek Shaw, Neil Hast­ings and Mark Wilkins as the hosts sealed a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory over the visitors.

Pumphy had gone into the clash with a two point ad­van­tage at the summit but that was ex­tended as Cross­gates Prim­rose scored a sur­pris­ing 3-1 vic­tory away in the cap­i­tal as Ed­in­burgh United were cast aside.

West Calder’s loss at Ar­madale also means they sit seven points clear of the Cau­ther who sit just out­side the pro­mo­tion places.

It’s been a re­mark­able run from Craig Mar­tin’s side who have fol­lowed up their open­ing day loss to West Calder with nine wins and two de­feats.

Pumpherston will be hop­ing they can take their im­pres­sive league form into the East of Scot­land Cup as they travel to Lochee United, who are sit­ting sec­ond in the Su­per­league ta­ble.
