Saturday 7th March - Huntly 1 Forres Mechanics 2

Forres Mechanics had a bit of good fortune as they came from behind to secure their third straight win at Christie Park over Huntly.

Huntly welcomed back Ian Cruickshank and Thomas Johnston after the duo missed the defeat at Keith last week. Alexander Thoirs and David Christie both missed out due to work commitments while there was a surprise return for Murray McCulloch who featured for the first time since October 29th. Forres made one change from their last game with Formartine United as Andrew Fraser came in for Ross Archibald to start against his former side.

Home goalkeeper Fraser Hobday was called into action after 36 seconds when he pulled off a point blank save against Dachi Khutsishvili. Two minutes later, Aaron Shand lifted a shot towards goal but his effort was held by Stuart Knight.

It was the hosts who took the lead just after the half hour mark, Ian Cruickshank played in from the right channel and midfielder John Urquhart made a run into the box and took a touch before firing in his first goal for the club.

There were further chances for Huntly in the first half, Gary McNamee’s left footed drive was parried by Stuart Knight and as the ball spun up from the rebound Shand headed wide. Shand would turn provider in the 40th minute laying the ball off into the path of Craig Dorrat and the winger forced Knight into a save.

A minute from the interval a long throw from Simon Allan was headed backwards by Craig Dorrat inside his own area and it dropped to his former team mate Andrew Fraser as Hobday did well to save.

Half-Time: Huntly 1 Forres Mechanics 0

Forres Manager Charlie Rowley made a change at the break, former Huntly Captain Stuart Soane replacing Scott Moore who was struggling with injury. Rowley’s side started the second half brightly with Andrew Fraser and Dachi Khutsishvili both denied by the Huntly backline. The Can-Can’s threatened a number of times from long throws with a delivery from Duncan Jones headed on by Andrew Fraser for Ross Macpherson as the midfielder’s half-volley went past the base of the post.

Midway through the second half right back Simon Allan cut in from the right flank and delivered a ball towards goal, his delivery gathered pace in the wind and came off the inside of the far post and over the line.

In the 69th minute, substitute Ross Archibald won a soft free against Urquhart. Duncan Jones was denied by the woodwork from the dead ball with his effort coming off the post.

With nine minutes remaining Ian Cruickshank lost possession in his own half which saw Forres go on the counter and after a quick move down the left the ball found Stuart Soane whose strike from the edge of the area took a deflection to find the net.

As the game went into the final minute, Neale Davidson had to go off injured after being floored following an aerial challenge from Steven Fraser, Fraser was fortunate to remain on the pitch after receiving an earlier caution and then swearing at Assistant Referee Allan Cunningham minutes before his challenge on the Huntly forward.
