Fraserburgh striker Graham Johnstone will be forced to watch his side from the stands for the next two games, having failed in an attempt to have a red card rescinded following an alleged kick he aimed at Cove’s goalkeeper Stuart McKenzie on Saturday 23 December.

Cove’s stopper , Stuart McKenzie, had written a letter stating that the Broch’s forward did not attack him, but the official’s decision was not overturned due to a lack of video evidence to support the Broch man’s case.

Kris Hunter and the Fraserburgh team will now be without Johnstone for their upcoming home game against Buckie Thistle on Saturday 14 January, and their away trip to Brora Rangers on Saturday 21 January.

The ban may yet be extended further for the striker, causing the Broch to be without their hitman for most of the January fixtures.
