The terrain for this game was slightly unusual - one flank was blocked by a river and some wooded areas. The other flank was pretty open whilst the centre was dominated by a large T-shaped hill.

Over on the English left the Ironsides had routed all the Scots Horse and so turned their attention to some isolated lowland foot. This forced the Scots to close-off their right flank and reform their defensive line.

As darkness began to fall both sides were in danger on their rights but winning on their lefts. Both were also 3 routs from their breakpoint. With the result in so much doubt a draw was declared, which left the Scots in possession of Edinburgh.
