Brora Rangers won 2-0 against Deveronvale, who displayed an improved performance from their midweek defeat to Buckie Thistle at Princess Royal Park.

Goals from Steven Mackay and Dale Gillespie secured the away side all three points to keep up the chase of leaders Cove Rangers on a cold afternoon.

The hosts were without Craig Cowie and Lukas Krobot due to both picking up red cards in Wednesday’s night defeat to Buckie Thistle. Meanwhile, the visitors were without Paul Brindle as he had a hamstring injury.

The first real chance came for the away side as Andrew Greig whipped the ball into Mackay who headed over the crossbar.

At the other end Kevin Souter struck a low drive with keeper Joe Malin parrying the ball to safety. Then Greig got the better of defender Ross Aitken and he crossed the ball into Mackay whose header went off the bar.

In the 16th minute the opener arrived for the visitors when Richard Britain curled a free-kick which Gillespie headed home with Grant Pennet having no chance.

Brora doubled their lead in the 33rd minute when John Pickles darted down the right flank and played a long ball to unmarked Mackay, who tapped the ball into the net.

Near the end of the half the Vale had a great opportunity to get a goal back when Gary Harris was put through on goal, but his shot went just wide of the target.

Just after the interval Brittain blasted a free-kick over the crossbar. Soon after the hosts broke forward and Malin brought down Harris inside the box with big shouts for a penalty, however referee Liam Duncan didn’t give it.

Not long after, Mackay picked up the ball after some sloppy play from the Vale and went through one-on-one with the keeper and Pennet brought him down. Referee Duncan was quick to award a penalty and booked Pennet for the challenge.

Mackay slipped as he went to take the spot-kick with it going well wide of the target. With time running out in the match Grant Munro smash a set-piece wide of the target but Brora had already done enough to win.
