Hunter pleased with energy levels at Burgh

Fraserburgh manager Kris Hunter has said he was pleased by a good, energetic display from his side in Saturday’s win over Huntly.

The Burgh had seemingly gone a game too far in their loss last fortnight when they were punished by a late goal against Formartine United.

“I still don’t think we deserved to lose the game against Formartine,” Hunter said this week, but he has, evidently, made quick work of rotating a tired side to return to winning ways.

Fraserburgh went into the game against Huntly having not won in two, leaving their hosts 3-1 worse off by the time the final whistle blew.

Hunter said: “I thought it was an overall good display from a changed team.

“We changed it about, there was a few injuries, and took back a couple players as well - Derek Patterson was back after a while out, and shifted Marc Dickson to centre-half.

“Overall, it was a very energetic performance. I though the energy levels were tremendous.

“We scored three goals, but we created a lot more, and on any other day we would’ve scored a few more,” he added.

With Clachnacuddin up next for the Burgh, Hunter dismissed an easy win, pointing out that they had, two weeks ago, led Nairn 2-1 after 90 minutes gone, Nairn only coming back to beat their visitors with goals in injury time.

“We know how dangerous Clach are.

“They always seem to get the players that are maybe on loan from Caley or Ross County, it’s a big catchment area as well, so it’s never been easy games.

“We’re not treating the game lightly. If we don’t go on with the right attitude, then we won’t get anything out of the game,” the manager added.

A win on Saturday for Fraserburgh could be enough for them to rise into the top eight, should other results go their way, while Clach will be looking to get into a double digit point tally.

Kick-off for the game, at Bellslea Park on November 23, is scheduled for 3pm.
