Fraserburgh vs Deveronvale Aberdeenshire cup 12/8/15

A late Johnston goal sends the Broch supporters home happy and through to the next round of the Aberdeenshire Cup where they will play Cove Rangers

The game started really slow with none of the two sides looking to punish the other in attack. The only notable chance as such in the first half went to Fraserburgh with Bailey Simpson who was making his first start in a broch shirt laid the ball off to John Chalmers who was waiting at the edge of the box but Kevin Souter got in the way of the shot.

Fraserburgh made a change at half time bringing on Dean Cowie for Ryan Christie In midfield and it gave the broch a bit more of an attacking threat but chances were still to a minimal for both sides. Fraserburgh nearly took the lead when a poor head back to the keeper from Kieran Heads was intercepted by Graham Johnston but slipped at the last minute and ball went into keeper Rhys Fyfe’s arms. Deveronvale had a penalty shout when Stuart Leslie went down in the box but referee Allan Hogg gave him a yellow for a dive. Another half chance came to Fraserburgh when Simpson sent a good ball over the top of the defence but Johnston couldn’t control the pass and ended up being cleared up the pitch. Fraserburgh won a free kick 30 yards out but was played close to Fyfe but he couldn’t hold it and was taken off him by Johnston but Hogg gave a foul on the keeper. 

Finally the deadlock was broken in the 82nd minute when an almost inch perfect cross by Aiden Combe puts it on a plate for Johnston who volleyed it with the side of his foot into the back of the net giving Fyfe absolutely no chance.

The game wasn’t a classic but these are the games you need to grind out in order to lift trophies. Fraserburgh manager Mark Cowie will be happy with the victory but may feel his team should have offered more in the final third. Meanwhile Vale manager Ally MacLeod will be disappointed his team never really showed up at all and never posed a threat in the Fraserburgh box with Joe Barbour not having to make a single save all game.
