Fraserburgh manager Kris Hunter says his side were “Brilliant from the first whistle till the last” on Saturday as they took apart Deveronvale 6-1.

Four goals in the first twenty minutes from Graham Johnston, Peter Alexander-Bruce, Steven Davidson and Ryan Cowie all but ended the game as a contest before Scott Barbour’s second half double after the visitors had got one back rounded off the scoring.

Hunter said that the result was a good way to try and begin a run of wins.

“We’re looking to win all our remaining games this season, that’s eight league matches and the semi-final against Peterhead and the final after that.

“We’re capable of getting results in all those games and we have to go out and give it a go now.”

The Broch gaffer says he wasn’t really surprised by the result on Saturday after scoring four goals in twenty minutes.

“It didn’t really surprise me as I know what the lads are capable of.

“Our ability showed on Saturday, we gained confidence through the match and it could have easily been seven or eight goals we had by half time alone.

“They only had one shot on target all game and that was their goal.”

Deveronvale went into the game with a notably depleted side but Hunter says he was only focused on his own players.

“I didn’t really look into their team, I just focused on my own.

“They are still a Highland League side and are still dangerous.

“The match is a local derby for us and I felt it was great for the players to get to celebrate a win over them as they’ve celebrated a few over us the past few years.”

Fraserburgh will have an away trip to Granton-on-Spey to face second bottom Strathspey Thistle.

“We’ll go into the game with confidence, like we have to, but it will be a hard game as it’s always a hard place to travel to.

“We’ll treat it the same as every other game regardless of their league position and we know we’ll have to go in with the same attitude we did on Saturday.”

Strathspey did not play at the weekend due to their pitch being frozen.
