Locos get back to winning ways against Fort William

Inverurie Loco Works 3 Fort William 0

After losing to Brora and drawing with Nairn midweek, Inverurie triumphantly returned to winning ways at Harlaw Park as they swept Fort William aside by 3 goals to nil.

A relatively quiet opening to the match saw neither side dominate as half chances came and went. In fact, it took a 20 yard half volley striking the cross bar from Locos makeshift centre back Gordon Forsyth on ten minutes to spark some interest from the crowd.

This was to prove to be a final warning for Fort as Inverurie broke the deadlock minutes later. David Ross did well to keep the ball in play at the back post and he somehow directed the ball past Richard Munro, across goal and into the path of the grateful Martin Bavidge who calmly slotted home.

A goal to the good, Inverurie began to shift through the gears as they continued to apply the required pressure to double their advantage with 24 minutes played. Neil McLean's curled cross led to a low Ross Still header towards the crowded goal line and as Fort failed to clear, Bavidge found himself in the perfect position to poke the ball into the net.

As the half entered injury time, Ian Foggo produced Fort William's first effort of the match as he struck for goal from 30 yards out, with his shot producing a fine save from Andy Reid.

Half time: Inverurie Loco Works 2-0 Fort William

Looking to put the game beyond doubt, Inverurie started the half in impressive form as Andy Hunter's cross picked out a lurking Neil Gauld in front of goal, only for his header to skim off the top of the cross bar.

Fort then set about reminding Inverurie that the game was still alive as Ian Foggo dispossessed Neil Gauld on the edge of the box and his effort at goal was smothered by Reid.

Fort were made to pay for this missed opportunity as an individual piece of set piece brilliance from Neil Gauld on the hour mark settled the match. Gauld deceived those expecting a cross and instead curled his free-kick off the inside of the far post and into the net.

Taking the shine off a fine performance, the final moments of the match saw a worrying injury for Andy Hunter as the midfielder was stretchered from the pitch after an accidental clash of legs as he fought for the ball.
