Fraserburgh FC claimed a hard-fought victory on Satuday giving themselves a much-needed three points in their game at Keith.

The Broch went ahead in just 14 minutes when Marc Dickson ot on the end of a cross from Graham Johnston and poked the ball across the line.

They doubled their tally midway through the second half, thanks to a powerful drive by Dean Cowie who returned to the side after a spell on the bench.

Keith’s Mike Ewen and Hamish Ritchie both came close to scoring for the home side, but the Broch defence stood firm.

With just 14 minutes on the clock Keith substitute Matthew McDonald gave the home side a lifeline when he was set up by Kris Duncan, but Keith couldn’t find an equaliser and Fraserburgh held on for the victory.

Speaking after the game, Broch boss Mark Cowie said that he was happy with the three points.

“I think we controlled the first half of the game and we managed to get the early goal.

“In previous games we have taken an early lead then gone on to lose the game, so I’m glad that we managed to hold on and grind out a result.

“The objective was to get the three points today and we deservedly did so.

“We worked hard throughout the game when we didn’t have possession and that’s something we didn’t do in our last game.

“It was a well-worked goal from Marc Dickson and a great finish from Dean Cowie for the second goal, and I’m delighted with the win,” he added.
