Reporter Andrew Raffan's match verdict can be read below:

Fraserburgh seized the initiative in a scrappy opening to the game, following up a previously threatening corner with a perfect delivery from Garry Harris to the back post. Rising above the surrounding defenders, Scott Henry aimed his header into the ground with the ball bouncing into the roof of the net having evaded a crowded goal- line.

The opportunity for an instant replay fell to Jordan Leyden as he stood over a free-kick on the edge of the box, but his tame swerving effort was comfortably saved by Peter Tait.

Locos were back on terms midway through the half after a sensational individual effort from Colin Charlesworth. Chasing down a flick on by Dean Donaldson down the right flank, the winger beat three defenders as he eased into the box, before calmly chipping the ball over the oncoming Tait from six yards.

This was to be a bittersweet moment for Charlesworth as he left the game before half-time, having seemingly suffered a reoccurrence of the groin injury in his first match back from a spell on the side line.

Fraserburgh immediately capitalised on this blow to the Locos morale as Ryan Cowie delivered a skimming free-kick into a crowded box which resulted in a mad scramble for the ball. Finding the ball at his feet, Henry got his second of the game as he put his laces through the ball from 10 yards out, leaving Ryan Booth rooted to the spot.

This momentum was carried into the second half as Fraserburgh all but clinched the victory with two goals in as many minutes after Inverurie imploded. Struggling to clear their lines in a crowded box, the Locos defence were caught in possession by Jamie Beagrie, with the Broch man wasting no time in getting his effort in on goal after intercepting a sloppy pass.

In their next attacking possession following the restart, Beagrie then saw his legs swept by a clumsy Connor Rennie foul inside the box resulting in Harris calmly placing his penalty into the right hand side, sending Booth the wrong way.

Searching desperately for a route back into the match, Locos came within a coat of paint as Andy Hunter thundered a free-kick from 20 yards off the inside of the crossbar, only to see the ball rebound clear of the goal-line.

Any hopes of a dream comeback were quickly ended with Cowie becoming the fourth player on the scoresheet. Cowie curled an excellent low free kick round the Locos wall, rooting Booth to the spot.
