Forres Mechanics surrendered a three nil half-time lead to Wick Academy who went on an amazing second half comeback to take all the league points back up north with them. Stuart Soane put the cans on their way with a goal after ten minutes and hit his second seven minutes later. Lee Fraser hit a third just after 20 mins to put his side in the driving seat and all the league points looking like staying at home. Wick, however had other plans and came out in the 2nd half and began their comeback with a goal from Weir followed by another two from Allan and McGregor and bring their side level. Further goals from Anderson and Macadie compounded the misery for the home side and ensure Wick went home with all the league points after an amazing comeback. FT - Forres 3 Wick 5.
Forres Mechanics are through to the 2nd Round of the Scottish Cup after a 4-0 convincing win over local neighbours Lossiemouth at Grant Road. Forres started the match brighlty and took the lead when a Simon Allan deep free kick saw Graham Fraser rise the highest and put the Cans into a deserved lead after 23 mins. Graham's twin Lee also then got into the act when he got on the end of a Dachi cross from the right to give the away side a comfortable half-time lead. After half-time things got worse for the home side when Scott Graham finished off a great move and score a Forres third goal from all off 18 yards. Lee Fraser then completed a fantastic scoreline for Forres when he nodded in his second of the match from another corner to send the Cans into the next round to meet away either Leith Athletic or Cumbernauld who play in their replay on Wednesday. FT - Lossiemouth 0 Forres 4.
Forres Mechanics goalkeeper Stuart Knight scored a dramatic last minute header to earn a Scottish Cup replay against Lossiemouth at Mosset Park. Forres took the lead from a strike from Lee Fraser after Lossiemouth failed to clear a corner after only 9 minutes and it remained that way until half-time. 10mins into the 2nd half Lossiemouth were back in the game when they were awarded a penalty which also resulted in captain Graeme Grant being shown a red card after a challenge on Ross Archibald and Scott Millar drilled home the spot kick. Lossiemouth then took the lead when the former Cans striker smashed home a 30 yard drive. Deep into injury time Forres were heading out the cup until Knight went up the field for the corner and met Allans cross to send Mosset Park into wild celebrations and earn another crack in the cup next week. FT Forres 2 Lossiemouth 2.
Forres Mechanics made it two wins in a row with the defeat of Fort William at Mosset Park with Kyle Scott named yet again in the starting line-up and also found his name on the scoresheet after only 3 minutes with a header from a free-kick. Lee Fraser then doubled the home sides lead with another header, but this time from a corner, and just before half-time John Cameron make it three for the Cans with a overhead kick and take the Cans into a comfortable half-time lead. Forres then made sure of the points and also remain underfeated in their last five league games when Cameron netted his second of the match after 76 mins. FT - Forres 4 Fort William 0.
Forres Mechanics came away from a wet Grantown with a first away league win of the season after a 3-1 win which also ended being a double celebration for the club with captain Graeme Grant making his 400th appearance for the club. The first talking point came even before a ball was kicked when Kyle Scott was named as a surprised trialist in the starting eleven and straight away he was involved in the attacking play which also lead to Lee Fraser scoring after 30mins. Kyle was again involved in the second goal when a Simon Allan corner was headed back across the goal for Soane to nod the ball in from yards out to put the Cans into a two goal half-time lead. Strathspey pulled a goal back at the start of the 2nd half after the Cans defence failed to clear the ball and Edwards slid in at the back post to pull his side back into the game. This however was short lived when the Cans again pulled clear when Soane again scored with yet another header to ensure the Cans went home with all three away league points. FT Strathspey 1 Forres 3
