This was an important game for Turriff who went into the match sitting eight points behind the leaders Brora, so an away win was a must. Unfortunately for United, it never turned out that way.

Turriff made three changes from the side who lost to Cove in the League Cup semi-final. Stuart Cumming, Chris Herd and Jamie Beagrie started with James Chalmers, Nick Gray and Robbie Allan on the bench.

Nairn also made changes from their League Cup defeat to Wick. Conor Gethins and Glenn Main started, with Sam Urquhart moving to the bench and Adam Naismith unavailable.

In the early stages of the match Turriff dominated but couldn't find a finish.

With 18 minutes gone Nairn took the lead when Robbie Duncanson sent in a lovely corner from the left. Turriff failed to clear their lines and the ball dropped to Sean Webb eight yards from goal, from where he rifled it into the corner of the net.

Shortly after Nairn's goal there was an amazing goalmouth scramble following Andy MacAskill’s corner, where the ball struck a post before eventually being saved by Calum Antell.

With 40 minutes on the clock Nairn got a very controversial goal. Nairn had a throw-in level with Turriff 18-yard line, however a United player seemed badly injured. Nevertheless County played on and Alan Pollock crossed superbly for John Cameron to head in at the far post.

Nairn had a 2-0 lead without playing that well but in football it’s goals that count.

In the second half Nairn started to control the game and Turriff seemed to have lost the neat passing moves they had in the first half.

County’s top scorer Gethins finished well in the 72nd minute after a great pass from Robbie Duncanson, who could have been offside when he received the ball.

This decision seemed to upset Turriff manager Ross Jack and the referee called him from the dug-out and sent him to the stand.

Gethins made it 4-0 in the 88th minute after he got on the end of a pass through the middle of the Turriff defence.

The visitors were the better team first half but it was Nairn that came out worthy winners in the end.
