Saturday 14th Jan - Buckie Th 6 Lossiemouth 0

Buckie Thistle put six of the best past coastal rivals Lossiemouth at Victoria Park to move six points clear at the top of the Highland League table. Midfield general Kevin Fraser was the home hero with a double strike, one at the beginning of each half.

Jags boss Graeme Stewart was delighted with the performance:

"I thought we were outstanding and could been out of sight in the first half. We had four or five good chances, but the problem with a one goal lead is that it's always precarious and can be wiped out by an easy goal or a mistake from us. Like the penalty shout in the first half, I thought that was a penalty for them and it could have been a different game.

I've had a word with them, but I can't be too critical and we just need to take our chances when they come along. We're not a team who grind out one or two nils, we have players that want to score goals and when we have a ten to fifteen minute spell like that, we can win games very quickly.

I think we need to play ten massive games, play like we did today and not take our foot off the gas or we won't win the league, simple as that."

Buckie flew out of the blocks and took the lead after only four minutes, Sam Urquhart feeding the ball through to Kevin Fraser who showed great composure to slot the ball home from ten yards.

Lossie held their own until half time, but just three minutes after the break the home side doubled their lead when defender Chris Ross headed a Lewis Mackinnon free kick into his own net.

Kevin Fraser soon made it three with his second of the afternoon, Buckie catching the visitors on the break from a corner and Fraser waltzing through to round Darren McConnachie and tap the ball into an empty net.

Substitute Drew Copeland grabbed goal number four with five minutes remaining when he bundled home after some great work in the build-up from John McLeod, then Sam Urquhart brought up the nap hand for the homesters, slotting the ball into the bottom corner after teasing the visiting defence.

Top scorer McLeod got in on the act just a minute later, stealing the ball from Chris Ross and smashing his shot past McConnachie to complete the rout.

Lossie's misery was complete when Scott Miller fired a penalty wide at the death after Hamish Munro fouled Ross Archibald in the area.
