Eyemouth welcomed unbeaten league leaders Peebles to Warner Park on Saturday when they were beaten 4-1.

Both teams started at a frantic pace with ball moving from end to end and it was Peebles who broke the deadlock after seven minutes when their forward ran onto a through ball which Alan Speirs looked to have covered, but was tripped as the visiting player ran by and no foul was given.

The forward chipped the out-coming keeper Mutch to put his side in front.

Eyemouth responded in the best possible way by regaining possession, playing the ball through to Buckley, who nodded down for James Wilson to finish from just inside the box .

The game continued to half time at a fast pace with the Fishermen having the upper hand and they could easily have gone in at the break a few goals to the good had chances been taken, butat the interval it was all square at 1-1.

Peebles started the second half where they left off in the first.

Eyemouth were trying to grab hold if the game again when the inevitable happened.

The Peebles left midfielder gathered the ball and attacked the Eyemouth defence, curling the ball into the bottom right corner on 51 minutes.

Just five minutes later they were 3-1 up with a cute finish from the edge of the box.

This stirred Eyemouth into life and they forced a number of corners and free kicks around the edge of the Peebles box, but to no avail as chance upon chance went begging.

After a long spell of pressure by Eyemouth it was Peebles who added to their tally with the forward breaking through the defence only to be scythed by Mutch and the resultant penalty made it four.
