Michael Finnis headed the visitors in front early on and Craig Cormack made it two just beyond the half hour mark. 
 
Craig MacKenzie threw the home side a lifeline when he pulled a goal back a minute from half time, only for Alan Pollock to restore Rothes' two-goal cushion from the penalty spot after 65 minutes.

Team news for matches on Sat 28th August

Highland League 

Brora Rangers v Nairn County 

Brora have returned to form with three straight wins, they’ll hope to continue that run against Nairn County at Dudgeon Park. Martin Maclean, Ally Macdonald, Andrew Macrae and Colin Williamson miss out, but John Pickles is available again and returns to the squad.

Nairn travel without the unavailable Callum Howarth, Tom McLennan, Fraser Dingwall, Liam Shewan and Max Ewan.

Clach v Turriff Utd 

Clach are unbeaten in four league matches as they take on Turriff United at Grant Street. Connor Bunce and Ryan Mackintosh both return to the squad, but Steven Kelly misses out.

Turriff produced a superb fightback from three goals down to grab a point at home to Strathspey in midweek. They’ll hope to build on that result in Inverness. 

Formartine Utd v Buckie Thistle 

Formartine will aim to bounce back from their midweek defeat at Brechin when Buckie Thistle visit North Lodge Park. Stuart Anderson is likely to miss out through injury, but Daniel Park returned in midweek and will be in the squad.

Adam MacLeod is out with a knee injury for the visitors, while Hamish Munro and Scott Adams are also struggling with injuries. Lewis Dunbar and Lyall Booth have both left the club.

Forres Mechanics v Lossiemouth 

Forres host Lossiemouth at Mosset Park and they’ll be without Owen Paterson through  suspension, and the injured Owen Loveland (fractured ribs) and Joe Gauld (knee). Four other players have minor muscle strains, but they will need to play due to a lack of numbers. Dale Wood returns from a lengthy ban.

Lossie remain without Ally Bellingham due to a knee injury, while Brodie Allen is doubtful and new signing Ryan Farquhar is a few weeks away from fitness. Jared Kennedy and Dean Stewart could return to the squad.

Fort William P-P Brechin City
