Saturday 27th August - Lossiemouth 1 Inverurie Locos 0

Lossiemouth's unbeaten start to the season continues after a narrow one-nil home win over Inverurie Locos.

The goal came in the second half from Man of the Match Martin McMullan and Darren McConnachie kept his 4th clean sheet of the campaign. It was a battle of the Charlesworth's as Lossie boss Charlie watched his two sons Martin and Colin battle it out in opposing teams.

Inverurie started the game off promisingly, passing the ball around well from defence through midfield, although nothing came of the good play. After 10 minutes Laing played a well-timed pass through to Selfridge, who could only steer his effort wide of the post. Just minutes after Selfridge's chance another brace of chances came with a shot being saved by McConnachie and another effort being blocked on the line.

Inverurie continued to test home keeper "Mini", as Laing and Hunter both had shots saved by the in-form goalkeeper. In the 37th minute Selfridge got his head to a cross and only the crossbar kept his effort out of the net.

Lossie had a good spell just before half time with Ross Archibald latching onto a ball from Harry Noble, but he flicked his effort wide. Before the half was out Martin McMullan almost broke the deadlock with a header from inside the box, but he could only direct the ball over the crossbar.

Lossie were forced into a substitution at half time as Harry Noble went off due to broken eye and cheek bones. All the best to Harry and I wish him a speedy recovery.

Locos had another good spell at the beginning of the second half with a Selfridge effort yet again denied by Mini. Lossie started to put more pressure on Inverurie the later the game went on with McMullans effort going just over the crossbar.

After 73 minutes Lossie finally broke the deadlock, with a perfect pass from Ross Archibald through to McMullan, who calmly stroked the ball into the bottom left corner of Mathieson's net. In the 77th minute McMullan nearly got himself another goal but he only managed to steer his header wide of the target.

Another three points for Lossie as they continue their brilliant start to the season,  claiming 13 points out of a possible 15. Inverurie will also take positives from the game as Michael Selfridge had a few great opportunities to put Inverurie ahead but could not covert any.

Here was what Charlie Charlesworth had to say after the match:

"We were extremely poor in the 1st half with our touch and communication and movement lacking. We introduced new blood into the team to get an extra bit of 'spirit' into the starting 11, but we didn't really react to that.

However, we can't deny Locos situation and their spending power and we were wary of a reaction to Kenny Coull's resignation. It wasn't bonny, but five games in with four clean sheets is unbelievable. Really well done to my players and coaching staff."
