Hamish Munro's late header rescued a point for league leaders Buckie against Fraserburgh at Victoria Park.

The home side were without Lewis Mackinnon and Chris Angus was only fit enough for a place on the bench. Broch captain Russell McBride was also on the bench, while Bryan Hay, Dean Cowie and Michael Rae were all fit to start the match.

The first chance went to Buckie when Willie West lost the ball 25 yards out then held back Stuart Taylor. Shaun Carroll’s effort from the free kick was straight at Paul Leask.

In the 13th minute an excellent long ball from West found Paul Campbell, who cut inside unchallenged and curled his effort wide from 12 yards.

John McLeod then did well to win a corner but Broch cleared their lines and as they broke upfield, Craig Dorratt was booked for bringing down Campbell on halfway.

Bryan Hay produced a superb saving tackle on 25 minutes, just as McLeod looked set to pull the trigger from Andy Low’s cutback six yards out.

Low fired a 30 yard free kick over the crossbar in the 35th minute, then right on half time James Beagrie burst into the box only to be denied by a great block from Dorratt.

An innocuous handball from Willie West gave Buckie a dangerous free kick 20 yards out in the 46th minute, but Low’s fierce strike hit the wall and was cleared.

Broch went ahead in the 49th minute when Dean Cowie drove forward and slipped in Jamie Beagrie, who slotted past Ross Salmon from ten yards.

A mistake from Leask then gave Kevin Fraser a chance from a tight angle, but his shot was blocked and his header from the rebound cleared by Stuart Taylor.

Graham Johnston missed a great chance in the 62nd minute when a long ball found him clean through on goal, but his low effort from 15 yards was well saved by Salmon.

Two superb crosses from Fraser and Stuart Taylor found no takers as Buckie pushed for an equaliser, but the visitors’ back three continued to hold firm.

Sub Aiden Combe brought another fine save from Salmon after getting on the end of a long kick from Leask in the 76th minute.

Buckie levelled with four minutes to go when Carroll’s corner was headed home from eight yards by Hamish Munro.

A poor kick out from Salmon then almost let in Combe but he fired over from 20 yards as time ran out.
