Peffermill is a long way from home

PEEBLES ROVERS0

COLDSTREAM 4

New Coldstream manager Neil Oliver saw his side cruise into a four-goal lead after just 30 minutes to ease past a lacklustre Peebles Rovers in this League Cup Group D match.

The former Duns boss handed debuts to Andrew Douglas, Conor Devaney and Gary Shearer, who is currently on loan from Whitehill Welfare.

On a suprisingly good surface at Peffermill, where the game had been switched to due to a flooded Whitestone Park, it was one-way traffic from the off.

John Crawford latched onto a 50yd Kieran Ainslie ball and blasted it low into the net before heading Gary Wales’ cross home for the second.

Then Crawford set up Sean Simpson, who slid in for his ninth goal of the season, before debutant Devaney nipped in front of his marker for the fourth.

In the latter stages, Rovers lost two players to red cards as they lost their discipline.
