Duns went down to a 2-0 defeat when they travelled across the Borders to face the league leaders Peebles on Saturday.

A spirited performance from Duns saw them do everything but score.

They enjoyed a lot of first half possession, but the Dingers went behind after 25 minutes with a deflected shot which eluded keeper Tansy.

The second half continued in much the same manner with Duns having most of the possession but again they were unable to convert their pressure into goals,

Shennan hit the post and the Peebles keeper kept them in the game with a tremendous display throughout.

The points were sealed for Peebles when they scored a second goal after 80 minutes.

With Duns creating plenty chances they just need a little more luck and concentration in front of goal to converted some of their chances.

Peebles will be glad with a further three points to strengthen their place at the top of the division albeit a smash and grab display.

Duns; Tansey, Burns, Walker, Tait, Windram, McHoul, Weatherburn (Trialist), Chisholm, Shennan, Robinson (Lauder), Wales. Unused sub Ainslie.
