Fraserburgh United made it five games unbeaten on Saturday but will feel they should have done better at home to Newmacher who sit eight points adrift at the bottom of the league.

United looked good in the first 15 minutes of the match but Newmacher took control of the game and got the opener thanks to a screamer from their centre forward.

The home side changed their formation after the break but still went two down and the Newmacher striker netted his second of the game.

However, the junior Brochers soon showed a glimpse of there previous 2015 form scoring two goals in as many minutes.

On the 67th minute Fraser Watt swung a ball into the box which Jake West controlled well before slotting a left footed volley into the bottom corner of the goal.

United regained possession from the resulting Newmacher kick off and were straight back up the park, Steven Lawrence was then taken out inside the box for a clear penalty.

Aaron Garden took the spot kick which was saved by the visitors keeper before the rebound was stabbed home from close range by Fraser Watt.

United pressured in the last 15 minutes and Fraser Watt struck the woodwork with a free kick.

Then Neil Forbes netted after the ball fell to him inside the box but had his goal disallowed as United were awarded a free kick.

This will have annoyed all involved for the home side as the advantage rule should have certainly been played.
