Huntly made it five home wins in a row with a 2-1 victory over Lossiemouth.

Huntly had Alexander Jack injured as Kai Ross, Alexander Thoirs and Craig Dorrat were all absent while Lossiemouth brought James Leslie and Fraser Forbes back into the starting eleven.


Lossie threatened in the first minute with Ross Elliott’s low shot held by Euan Storrier. Eight minutes later, Nathan Meres saw a shot kept out by Stewart Black at the near post.

The black and gold’s took the lead in the sixteenth minute when Paul Esslemont chased down the ball forcing Liam Archibald to clear the ball out only as far as Nathan Meres and he drilled in low for his second of the season.

The woodwork denied Lossie a minute later when Fraser Forbes got forward following a quick counter attack only to strike against the bar.

Glenn Murison saw a header cleared off the line in the 21st minute while Ross Still and Reece McKeown were both denied just five minutes later.

Meres was again denied by Black in the 41st minute while Brodie Allen shot wide from close range. A minute later, Ashley Ballam was fouled by Ross Elliott who got into a shooting position only to be foiled by Storrier.

There was controversy in the build-up to the Lossiemouth equaliser when Bradley Manson was fouled by Ross Elliott before the ball was played forward to Fraser Forbes. Forbes ran on to fire into the far post with a low drive.

Half-Time: Huntly 1 Lossiemouth 1

Overhead and underfoot conditions got worse with rain coming down in the second half. With six minutes of the half played, Reece McKeown drilled wide of the far post while Ross Still’s header was held just two minutes later after he got on the end of a Logan Johnstone long throw.

In the 54th minute Paul Esslemont’s through ball in the last third picked out Nathan Meres who burst into the box and fired low towards goal for Declan Milne to prod in from close range for the seventh goal of his loan spell.

Milne had the ball in the net two minutes later but was flagged offside by Assistant Referee Brian Fowlie. The Huntly top scorer came close again running onto a Murison pass before rolling a shot wide.

Lossie passed up chances late on with veteran Kevin Flett seeing two efforts by the woodwork in a matter of minutes. Into stoppage time, Storrier would deny Elliott to ensure his side took the three points.
