Sat 29th Nov - Huntly 0 Fort William 4

 

Fort William secured their first win at Christie Park since April 2010 with a deserved four-nil win over Huntly.

 

Huntly went with the same squad which won at Lossiemouth last week while Fort William brought David Moffat, Callum Maclean and Gordon McCarroll into their starting eleven as they looked to build on wins over Buckie Thistle and Keith.

 

The visitors threatened after five minutes when Scott Davidson cut in front of his marker to fire towards goal but Fraser Hobday turned the shot around the post with a great save. Fort took the lead after nine minutes with a quick counter attack and James Whyte got in behind the Huntly defence to finish with a low drive.

 

Huntly had some chances to equalise, Callum Dunbar headed over from a long free kick from Gary Davidson while Neale Davidson saw a free kick fumbled behind by trialist goalkeeper David Osborne. After netting his first Huntly goal last week, Mark Lawson saw a header go across the face of goal as he rose to meet a Neale Davidson corner.

 

The visitors doubled their lead in the 24th minute when a corner from Scott Davidson went into the Huntly goalmouth and with nobody picking up Callum Maclean, he netted with a free header.

 

Craig Dorrat was penalised for a foul on Martin Kerr before the half-hour which saw both players retaliate. Referee Mark Stewart stepped in to pull the players apart. Dorrat received a caution as Kerr got off lightly without a talking to. Before play was restarted Kerr made an obscene gesture to the stand which was missed by the Referee and his assistant Bob Inkster.

 

The black and gold’s defence was still under pressure as Gordon McCarroll headed wide from a free kick while Callum Maclean had a low shot held by Hobday.

 

Huntly were forced into a change when Craig Dorrat went off with a recurring groin injury and had to be replaced by Russell Guild. After only being on a matter of minutes, Guild saw a shot parried by Osborne and the rebound fell to Aaron Shand who looked offside but he failed to take his chance from close range.

 

Half-Time: Huntly 0 Fort William 2

 

Having lost Martin Kerr to injury in the first half, Fort were forced into a further change when they lost their goalkeeper David Osborne to illness at the break. Teenager Robin Harvey took his place in goal.

 

There were chances at either end early on in the second half when Callum Dunbar had a header held, while the woodwork denied Scott Davidson who struck a shot off the post. Then a deep cross from Blair Johnston on the left was met by Ian Cruickshank whose glancing header went wide of the far post.

 

With thirteen minutes remaining James Whyte fired in a shot wards goal and his goal bound effort was helped into the net by Alexander Thoirs on the line.

 

Three minutes later the home defence failed to deal with a set piece from the right and Callum MacLean was on hand at the back post to net his second of the game.

 

Fort William were denied by the woodwork for a second time when substitute Darren Quigg clipped the crossbar with a looping shot.

 

The win takes Fort William above Huntly into 13th place with two games in hand as the black and gold’s have now gone three games without a win at home.
