Three quickfire goals earn Nairn win at Huntly

Huntly 1 Nairn County 3

Three goals in a ten-minute spell towards the end of the first half saw Nairn County claim all three points with a 3-1 win against bottom side Huntly.

Huntly rang the changes from their defeat to Forres Mechanics with Fraser Hobday, Alexander Thoirs, and Blair Johnston starting alongside new loan signing Mark Smith from Formartine United. Nairn
County named an unchanged side from the one which drew 1-1 at Inverurie midweek.

With 39 seconds played a long throw from Alexander Thoirs was met by the head of David Booth as Calum Donaldson was forced into a save. Craig Dorrat did well to win a tackle in the midfield before a quick exchanged with Adam McNamee and with his return shot, Dorrat cracked a shot off the bar.

With half an hour played, Nairn County went on the counter attack with Sam Urquhart in behind the defence to finish with a low drive. From the restart, Murray McCulloch came close with a low drive which was turned round the post by Donaldson.

Huntly looked slack at the back in the 35th minute and Conor Gethins was given a bit of space as he managed to squeeze a shot past Fraser Hobday at the near post. Five minutes before the break Robert Duncanson made it three with a great shot from twenty yards which he lifted high towards the far post.

Half-Time: Huntly 0 Nairn County 3

Minutes into the second half, Huntly were forced into a changed with Fraser Hobday going off with a groin injury as Grant Pennet came on in his place.

Dorrat came close again for the home side with a right-footed shot after Thoirs delivered. The woodwork denied the visitors a further goal when Paul Macleod had a shot saved before Sean Webb struck the bar. A quick cross from Blair Johnston in from the left picked out Ian Cruickshank inside the penalty area but the captain’s header was marginally wide.

The Wee County should’ve extended the lead when good work between Duncanson and Gethins saw the latter’s close range effort safely into the arms of substitute goalkeeper Pennet.
Huntly pulled one back with eight minutes to go. David Booth got the ball outside the Nairn box and played in Ian Cruickshank down the right and his quick return saw Booth drill home from the edge of the box.

A tussle into stoppage between Michael Clark and Conor Gethins had the Irishman looking for a foul with nothing giving by the officials. The County forward was lucky not to be shown a card upon leaving the field after the final for swearing at Assistant Referee Chris Macleod.
