Buckie Thistle won their fourth away match in a row in dramatic style by defeating Lossiemouth thanks to a last-minute winner by Chris Angus

Goals from Liam Baxter and Angus secured a 2-1 victory for the Jags, despite the Coasters opening the scoring courtesy of keeper Connor Hall.

The game was played in front of a big, vocal crowd on a windy afternoon.

Early on the first real chance fell to Willie Mathers whose shot went flying over the crossbar from close range.

The opener came in the 19th minute for the hosts, as goalkeeper Hall blasted the ball up the field towards Shawn Scott, who was quickly closed down. But stopper Matthew McGinley failed to keep his balance and the ball bounced over his head and into the net with some help from the wind to give Lossiemouth the lead.

Shortly afterwards, Anthony Ross smartly found Ryan Farquhar who fired his powerful effort across goal. At the other end, after a corner, the ball fell kindly for Drew Copeland who let fly with a blitzing strike from outside the box which went narrowly wide of the target.

Just after the break the Jags had a great opportunity to equalise through Angus but he headed over from a yard out despite being unmarked at the back post.

In the 59th minute Buckie levelled the match with Kevin Fraser darting down the right flank to cross the ball into Baxter, who smashed his shot into the net. The away support were booming out the chant “Liam Baxter, he scores when he wants” which rang through the Jags top scorers’ ears.

Soon after Ryan Green missed a sitter for the hosts as he failed to get the right connection to a cross from Scott.

Minutes later the visitors’ free-kick specialist Andy Low stepped up to smash his set piece just wide of the top corner.

Dramatically in stoppage time the Jags grabbed the winner as 17-year-old substitute Robert Scott sprinted down the left flank to cross the ball to Baxter, whose effort was well saved. But the ball dropped for Angus who stabbed a shot home.
