A Calum Brammer winner saw Fauldhouse United defeat Linlithgow Maroon in a tight encounter to make it four wins on the bounce.

Fauldhouse had won their previous three games in the league, scoring an impressive 15 goals in the process. Their next task was Linlithgow Maroon. Linlithgow were coming into the game off the back of their first win of the season and would have been looking to build on this and start making their way up the table.

Linlithgow started the game well, creating numerous chances but it was Fauldhouse who got the first goal in the thirty third minute. Themba Munthali had only came to the park a minute previous but it was him who put his side ahead, Linlithgow possibly feeling it was against the run of play.

They were back level just before half time however to make for an intriguing second forty five minutes.

  • Half Time:
  • Linlithgow Rose CFC Maroon
  • 1-1
  • Fauldhouse

Four minutes after the restart it was Fauldhouse who got back in front, Brammer this time got on the scoresheet, a tap in from a yard out after a close range volley was tipped onto the post by the Linlithgow goalkeeper. Linlithgow pushed and pushed for an equalizer but just couldn’t break the Fauldhouse defence, who had stepped up their game from the first half.

They played some good football throughout the second half and got three points in the end. It was a good victory for Fauldhouse who will now be turning their attention to Grangemouth BC in another opportunity to claim three points and move nearer the summit of the league table.
