Zander Miller put the BUs a goal up early on, but Craig Malcolm’s 37th-minute equaliser earned their hosts a share of the spoils.

“We went 1-0 up and could have scored again, but obviously they dominated the ball a bit,” said Bo’ness manager Max Christie.

"It’s not a bad result. They’re much fancied and have got guys like Chris Erskine, who played in the Premier League last year.

"I mustn’t grumble. I think we did all right.”

Both Miller and Craig Meikle had to go off early against East Kilbride after suffering hamstring tweaks.

Meikle faces two to three weeks out but Miller might be back in time to face Stirling University away in the league next Wednesday.

"It’s a blow to us,” Christie said. “Nicky Locke pulled his hamstring against BSC recently as well and will also be out for a period.”

Christie said he was pleased with the performances against East Kilbride of his new signings from Pollok, defenders Bryan Wharton and Daniel MacKenzie, both on loan until the end of the season.

"Bryan is the Pollok captain, a centre-half, and Danny’s their left-back. They played on Saturday and did well so they’re two good additions for us.”

Bo’ness get a break from the league this Saturday as they host Burntisland Shipyard in the Soccer Shop Direct Challenge Cup's second round.
