Kris Hunter’s Fraserburgh are now seven games unbeaten in the Highland League following Saturday’s 1-0 win over Lossiemouth at Bellslea Park.

Marc Dickson scored from the penalty in the 82nd minute after Lossie defender Bryan Bell was penalised for hand ball by referee Liam Duncan.

The result now means Fraserburgh have claimed 17 out of a possible 21 points in the league since drawing 2-2 with Buckie Thistle back in February, with a 1-1 draw away to Formartine being the only slip up in between.

Following last nights tricky away tie to Cove Rangers at Allan Park, Fraserburgh will make the long journey to Lochaber to face Fort William who were thrashed 6-0 at home by Inverurie Locos on Saturday.

Fort will be coming off the back of a home game against Clachnacuddin midweek, who will no doubt provide a difficult test as they did against Fraserburgh at the start of the month.

Fort William have had troubles with Claggan Park this season and will be playing into May to fulfil their league fixtures while Fraserburgh have shown the opposite and will have only one league fixture remaining following Saturday’s match, a home game against Inverurie Locos on April 18th.

Once Fraserburgh have negotiated these tricky fixtures they can turn their attention to the Morrison Motors Aberdeenshire Shield final, where they will face Turriff United.

Fraserburgh booked their spot in the final, the date and location of which is yet to be announced, after receiving a bye in the semi’s when Peterhead pulled out of the competition.

Turriff then added their name as opponents defeating Cove 2-1 in extra time last Wednesday.

Cove would get revenge on Turriff at the weekend however, knocking them out of the Aberdeenshire cup with a 2-1 win of their own at The Haughs.

Broch boss Kris Hunter, a former Turriff United manager, will be looking to continue Fraserburgh’s good history in the Aberdeenshire Shield by adding a seventh competition win, keeping them on top of the pile as the team to win the competition the most amount of times.

2013 winners Turiff will provide stern opposition.
