Inverurie seized the advantage from their first trip to the Keith box as they took an early lead in the game.


Jordan Leyden stretched the Keith defence as he broke down the left flank before teasing his cross deep into the box to find Colin Charlesworth. With an abundance of space, Charlesworth composed himself before firing a shot into the top far corner from close range.


Inverurie then set about preserving their fragile lead as Keith began to grow into the game, causing the Locos defence issues almost immediately as Michael Ralton fired a speculative effort from 30 yards which swerved high over the crossbar.


In a game of even possession, Keith created the majority of opportunities as they made their time on the ball count. Andy Smith forced a great save out of Scott Mathieson from six yards out after a flowing attacking move into the box.


With half-time approaching, Keith should have levelled the score as Michael Ewen was fed into the Locos box with only Mathieson to beat, only to see his low effort go wide.


The match then exploded into life as Keith got a much deserved equaliser only 44 seconds into the second half. Coming directly from kick-off, Keith advanced up the pitch and Luke Barbour saw his close-range effort blocked by Mathieson. Reacting first to the save, Barbour made sure second time round as he rifled home his rebound from inside the six yard box.


Inverurie regained their lead despite the appeals of a frustrated Keith defence. Stuart Duff provided the deep cross from the right flank which found Dean Donaldson lurking at the back post, in what the defence thought was an offside position. Donaldson then made use of the space to calmly place the ball across goal.


Minutes later, Mathieson collected what was adjusted to be a pass back to the keeper, gifting Keith a free-kick beside the penalty spot. Defender Adam Clark stepped forward to drive the ball low into the bottom right corner, somehow evading the oncoming Locos team.


Once again, the match was only to remain level for a matter of minutes as Craig Cormack swept the legs of Donaldson inside the box to gift Inverurie a penalty. Donaldson immediately rushed to collect the ball before placing his shot into the bottom right corner, sending David Dey the wrong way.


As the match approached the final minutes, Keith produced a spectacular last-gasp move to split the points as James Brownie raced into the Locos box after a long pass from midfield. Having seemingly over-ran the pass, Brownie improvised with his effort, taking Mathieson by surprise to aim the shot into the top far corner.
