Huntly suffered a fifth successive defeat to Nairn County as the Wee County came from behind to secure a 3-1 victory.

Nairn had former Huntly midfielder Adam Naismith sidelined with a back injury while Huntly were missing Ashley Ballam and Craig Dorrat who were away on holiday while Kai Ross and Alexander Thoirs returned to the squad.

 

Huntly went ahead in the ninth minute when Ross Still lifted a pass into the path of Nathan Meres who made it two goals in as many games with a low drive inside of the near post.

Max Ewan broke forward two minutes later only for Euan Storrier to block Ewan’s shot with his legs. Huntly threatened from set pieces with Bradley Manson and Ross Still both heading past the woodwork in a matter of minutes from a Reece McKeown.

Storrier kept out the hosts again in the 27th minutes from a Kenneth McKenzie shot while Huntly were denied a penalty on the half-hour mark. Nathan Meres avoided two challenges from the home defence before being taken down by Fraser Dingwall but Referee Harry Bruce waved away the appeals.

Nairn were awarded a controversial penalty when Bradley Manson appeared to have been fouled by Max Ewan only for the Huntly defender to be penalised for the challenge. Nairn Captain Adam Porritt squeezed the spot kick inside the post to level the score. Tempers flared in the Huntly technical area following the equaliser with Manager Martin Skinner cautioned following his side’s reaction.

Half-Time: Nairn County 1 Huntly 1

Five minutes after the interval Nairn got in front as midfielder Kenny McKenzie fired low inside the post.

Declan Milne looked to level two minutes later only to be denied by Counsell in the home goal.

Glenn Main should’ve killed the game off on the hour mark but a block from the in-form Euan Storrier kept out the forward. Glenn Murison came close to equalising midway through the half only for the on-loan Will Counsell to tip the midfielder’s shot over the bar.

With fifteen minutes remaining, debutant Scott Davidson fired the ball into the six yard box only for Bradley Manson to turn the ball into his own net.

The visitors passed up a chance to grab a further goal into the final minute when Kai Ross headed wide after meeting a Cai Matthew cross.
