Saturday 9th April - Turriff Utd 0 Inverurie Locos 1

Andy Hunter scored late in the second half to give Inverurie Locos all three points against Turriff United, levelling them on points with their opponents and ensuring they were still in the race for fourth place.

Locos manager Scott Buchan chose the same squad that drew with Fraserburgh. Meanwhile Ross Jack was forced into making a late change before kick off due to Paul Young picking up an injury, so Robert Allan started in his place. 

The first real chance came for the hosts through Leszek Nowosieiski who curled a shot from 10 yards which looked goal bound, but it rattled the crossbar with keeper Errol Watson beaten.

Then David Booth sent a through ball to Nowosieiski who cut inside and struck an effort which went just over the crossbar. 

At the other end, Andy Hunter hit a free kick which keeper Kevin Main spilled, but he managed to gather the ball before Locos could pounce for an easy tap in.

The away side were dealt a blow with their captain Neil McLean having to be taken off due to injury and he was replaced by Martin Laing.

Not long after, Robert Allan stepped up to blast his free kick over the bar.  This half was filled with brilliant and skilful moments, but it was missing the goal it badly needed.

Both sides came out for the second half all fired up and the deadlock was nearly broken by the home side as Booth’s low drive was brilliantly saved by Watson.

Booth was proving to be the main threat for Turriff as he crossed the ball from the left into Jamie Beagrie, but his header went wide of the target.

Soon after Jordan Leyden darted down the left wing and whipped the ball into Colin Charlesworth, who performed a superb volley which looked goal bound but Main dived to save well.

In the 65th minute Craig MacAskill came on to replace danger man Leszek Nowosielski. Straight after the substitution there was a small penalty claim for Ross Jack’s side as Artjoms Kuznecovs looked have been brought down inside the box but referee Liam Duncan waved play on.

The deadlock was finally broken three minutes later by Locos when Martin Bavidge fired the ball to the back post to the unmarked Hunter and he calmly tapped the ball into the net.

Inverurie did come close to doubling their lead through Martin Bavidge, who struck a shot which Main dived to his right to put out for a corner.

Leyden again was a creative force as he drove down the left flank and passed the ball to Bavidge, who turned to hit a strike which Main saved from point blank range.

Sub MacAskill did have a glorious chance to level the game from two yards but composure deserted him as he blasted the ball over the bar. Locos managed to hold out for the win despite some nervous moments late on as Booth headed over and Lewis Davidson saw his tremendous free kick go over the bar.
