Wed 1st April - Forres 2 Inverurie 1

Forres Mechanics grabbed victory in injury-time to end their home campaign on a high but this was very much a game Inverurie Locos should have won after playing against 10 men for 48 minutes.

Sleety rain and freezing cold conditions fooled nobody, this was far from a mild night for the first midweek game of BST and it was Locos with the first chance, when Andy Hunter brought out an easy save from Stuart Knight in the 2nd minute.

The Can-Cans replied with Steven Fraser setting Kris Duncan away and he laid the ball back to Craig McGovern. With Andy Reid out of position, the left-back could have done better and his cross was too high for centre forward Lee Fraser.

For the next spell of the game Inverurie’s Martin Bavidge dominated. The experienced striker went on a mazy run that led to a corner on the right and a few minutes he later cut in from the left to test Knight with a low shot.

Bavidge then sent a right-foot shot flashing across goal after David Ross had set him up.

Right on the half-hour mark, Locos went behind. Ross was back in his own box and referee Craig Sim gave a corner against him, when it looked like he hadn’t connected with the ball as McGovern looked for Fraser at the near post.

From Duncan Jones’ corner on the left, in form centre-back Steven Fraser towered high at the back post to send a header into the net.

Locos’ hopes of getting back into the game were boosted when home skipper Graeme Grant rightly received a straight red as he prevented a goalscoring opportunity by bringing down Ross.

Right on half-time thunderous strike from Neil McLean was tipped over by Knight.

There was a massive blow for the visitors on the hour, when Andy Hunter carried off on a stretcher after appearing to fall awkwardly following a touchline challenge.

However with 75 minutes gone, incessant pressure on the home goal paid off. McLean curled in a free-kick inches away from the left touchline at distance. It totally deceived Knight who may have been partially unsighted. The ball crept in at his left post and the scores were level.

There followed an onslaught from Locos and Neil Gauld was brought into the fray to make it four up front. Knight had to get down low as another Leyden ball into the box caused consternation. The outstanding Fraser was on hand to block the rebound.

On the breakaway, Forres substitute Dachi Khutsishvilli sent the ball across goal but the play then went back to the other end, with McGovern making a last gasp clearance to foil McLean.

As the game entered injury-time the visitors looked favourites to score, but such has been Locos’ inability to keep the back door locked, the winner went to Forres.

Lee Fraser squared a pass for substitute Ross Archibald and he slid the ball past Reid.
