Wick make it five wins in a row

Clachnacuddin 0 Wick Academy 2

High-flying Wick Academy left Grant Street with all three points against buoyant Clach.

Clach nearly got off to the perfect start when lively winger Blair Lawrie found room within the first minute down the right-hand side. His deep cross found Gary Kerr at the back post who was unable to beat Academy keeper Sean McCarthy.

Clach were then nearly gifted the lead by Wick. A long ball over the top from captain Gordon Morrison beat everyone and his opposite number Alan Farquhar headed back to the onrushing McCarthy but Farquhar was spared his blushes as his keeper managed to hold onto the ball.

Martin Callum was the next to provide Gary Kerr with an opportunity as he found room on the left but the tall striker couldn't properly connect with his volley as he sent it wide of the target.

Wick Academy then took the lead against the run of play. Stevie Cunningham played a long ball over the top looking for Davie Allan. Clach goalkeeper Ally Ridgers and centre-back Sean Fitzpatrick had a mismatch in communication as Fitzpatrick hit it over the keeper's head and Allan forced it over the line with his head to open the scoring on the 30-minute mark.

Academy then nearly doubled their lead within the space of two minutes. Polish striker Lukasz Geruzel found room 35 yards from goal and hit an audacious left-foot half-volley which beat Ridgers but only found the side netting.

Clach started the second half well. Watson found Lawrie on the edge of the box but his shot was only deflected for a corner. In the 54th minute Kerr was presented with a great chance to pull a goal back. Andrew Skinner made a weaving run inside the field and slid the ball into Kerr's feet but his shot lacked any real power and trundled past the post.

Substitute Richard Macadie drove towards the Clach goal on the hour mark playing a neat one two with Allan but again the shot was comfortably saved by Ridgers.

Wick then doubled their lead and all but killed the game off. Steven Mackay's inswinging corner found the head of Grant Steven who rose highest to head past the helpless Ridgers to give the home side a mammoth task if they wanted anything from the game.

Daniel MacLennan linked up with Martin Callum but saw his rasping shot just go over the bar with Academy keeper McCarthy sprawling to reach it.

Ross Grant then forced a wonder save from McCarthy. He hit a sweet first time volley which looked destined for the bottom corner but ex-Ross County man McCarthy tipped it round the post for a corner kick.

Wick should have scored a third in virtually the last play of the game. Macadie played a defence-splitting pass which found substitute Gary Weir who rounded Ridgers but an excellent last ditch challenge from Ryan Watson denied the veteran striker.

Wick made it five wins out the last five games and will be looking to carry this impressive form throughout the rest of the season. It was a case of missed chances for Clach and manager Iain Polworth will be disappointed now to get anything from this game.
