Garry O’Connor missed a penalty as Selkirk suffered their fourth defeat of the season.

Whitehill Welfare went ahead after just four minutes thanks to a Wullie Kidd header, before O’Connor saw his 10th-minute penalty saved by Bryan Young.

Selkirk drew level three minutes after the break when David Battle produced a superb goal, lobbing Young, but Welfare’s lead was restored on 50 minutes as Steven Manson converted a spot kick after Wayne Sproule was fouled in the box.

The visitors went 3-1 up after Manson added another penalty on 54 minutes after Andy Martin was fouled, and despite a 90th-minute own goal by John Hall, Selkirk could not grab an equaliser.
