Fraserburgh did things the hard way this weekend when they hosted mid-table side Lossiemouth at Bellslea Park.
Leading the score 2-0 at the break, the ‘Brochers concentration had lapsed and, eleven minutes into the second half, the scores were tied. A mistake by Lossiemouth’s Bryan Bell gifted Fraserburgh an escape clause, and the ‘Broch’s Allan Hale stepped up to convert the resultant penalty of Bell’s late challenge on Mark Cowie.
The result, which sees Fraserburgh keep their 100-per-cent record at home, lifts the ‘Brochers up to ninth in the Highland League.
“I think that if we win the majority of our games at home, it gives us a platform to be up there with the rest of the chasing pack come the end of the season,” said ‘Broch manager, Chris Hunter.
With the team playing free-flowing, attacking football, goals at both ends have been a permanent fixture in the ‘Broch’s game, something that the fans will hope the team will amend when they travel to play win-less Strathspey Thistle on Saturday.
Speaking to the Fraserburgh Herald, manager Chris Hunter said:
“We play an attacking style of football that the players and the fans enjoy to watch, we don’t want to be a negative team.
“We need to win the game to get the three points, so that’s what we’ll try to do,” added Hunter.
Fraserburgh have no new injury concerns ahead of the Saturday fixture against Strathspey. The ‘Broch go into the game knowing that, if results are favourable elsewhere, the club can break into the top four.
