A strong second-half showing from Brora saw them beat Fort William to advance to the Scottish Cup second round.

The hosts led at the break thanks to a good finish from Danny Highet, only for the Cattachs to hit back after the restart and score four goals.

Brora player-manager Grant Munro was pleased with the performance of his players after the interval.

He said: “Fort William thoroughly deserved their lead at half-time. We asked for something more from the boys in the second half and they responded positively.

“The difference in the second half was that we took all of our chances and could maybe have scored a couple more.

“The main thing was that we got through to the second-round draw.”

Fort scored the opening goal just before the half-hour mark. Colin Maclean delivered the ball into the penalty area and when it broke to Highet, he made no mistake from 12 yards out.

Brora improved after the break and equalised in the 57th minute through a drive from 15 yards out by Zander Sutherland.

The away side took the lead courtesy of a close-range finish from Craig Campbell, before Steven Ross extended their advantage with a header.

Brora then rounded off their win with Campbell’s second goal of the game, following good approach play by Andrew Greig.

Fort William manager Ally Ewen believes his side were made to pay for missing opportunities during the first half.

He said: “It was the same old story for us in that we didn’t take our chances when we were on top.

“With the quality in the Brora ranks, that came back to haunt us in the second half.”
