The BU's should have scored several goals today as they were far more dominant than their Fife opponents.

Ref was not strong today he ruined my visit to watch a nutural game, both teams worked hard and it could have gone both ways,

Cup of tea , back in the Hoose, time for some more thoughts on the game at Dundonald.

Far stronger team today. Campbell was still suspended and we had Marshall in goal instead of Murphy but it looked a better side than we fielded v Bonnyrigg.

Great early start as Prentice neatly headed into the net. After that it looked like a question of "how many" as the BU dominated the game. Alas it was not to be as the BU's missed chance after chance and too often the final ball was a poor one.

The BU back 4 with Donnelly and Gemmell giving extra protection didn't look under pressure at any point. Yes Dundonald had the odd half chance but it was dealt with fairly well. Our 2 fullbacks Jacobs and Sime were the men of the match for the way they snuffed out their opponents attempts and turned defence into attack.

The midfield of Gemmell Donnelly and Morgan worked hard and won their battles.

Up front Prentice and Wright looked far too tricky for Tweedledum and Tweedledee the 2 Dundonald centrehalfs. Big Alan Mackenzie looked a yard short today after missing the game last week but still put in a shift.

We created enough chances today to win several games and the 0-1 scoreline doesn't reflect our dominance.

You're having a laugh!  You should have been there two weeks ago if you want to moan about a ref.  In what way was he not strong, apart from waiting 85 minutes to book Smith?

I watch refs through blue tinted spectacles....... I thought he was good by Fife standards. Got most of the decisions right and he wasn't conned by Calum Smith's playacting.

At 0-1 for about 88 minutes of the game there's only a single goal between the teams but I thought the BU looked far more solid and were clearly the better team.

A really good all-round performance from the lads today.  If only they knew how to score.  Prentice had probably his best game in a Bo'ness shirt and could/should have had a hat-trick.

Donnelly was a trojan in the middle of the park and Snowdon had the measure of Campbell today.  Wee Dev had a great game though and thoroughly deserved MOTM.

There really is an added pressure on our defenders in every game.  They start knowing only a clean sheet will guarantee a win.  Then likely as not, they are our best source of goals too.

The guys up the pitch need to be converting more chances, simple as.

Thought Will Snowden was a fair shout for MOTM today. Defensively sound up against their forwards, and read the game like a book. Literally dealt with everything that got past the rest of our defence.

A win is a win but if we continue to squander chances like we did today,it’s gonna come back and hurt us,but the only outcome that matters in a cup tie is  being in the next round,do job done

Aye, the inability to score remains a major source of concern - but otherwise a very pleasing performance, and you could probably make a reasonable case for MOTM for half a dozen players, which is always a good sign. (Will Snowdon for me.)

Plenty delusion in Bo’ness. We had another couple of gears last week yet I read with some confusion that the result flattered us.

I can’t see Bo’ness coming back from the dissolution of Junior football. No desire to compete. Dwindling in the depths of Scottish football. It’s all you deserve.

You pay the council back the money you got off them for ground improvements a few years back or did you spend on players?

Truth hurts mate. You should get used to those empty Terraces. Shadow of a team on its way out.

Yes we took the money and spent it directly on the players. I think McGachie gets a flute of champagne for every goal. 

You should manybe focus on your dwindling crowds. Nobody is interested anymore.
