Forres Mechanics travelled to Formartine Utd and came away with a worthy point but would have been unhappy not to come away with all three points after being two goals up within the half hour mark. The Cans took the lead with a trademark free-kick from Scott Graham and then doubled their lead when Martin Groat scored his first competitive goal for the club and take his side into a impressive half-time lead. Seven minutes into the 2nd half Formartine pulled a goal through Scott Barbour and 15 mins later were back level with a goal from Graham Rodger and send both clubs home with a point a piece.
Forres Mechanics came back from a goal down to record our second and much needed league win of the new season. Keith, however did take the lead after 35 mins with a 20 yard free-kick from Whelan to take his side in front over the interval but John Cameron sprung the Keith offside trap to equalise and score his 1st competitve goal for the club on just about the hour mark. Lee Fraser then came of the bench and put the Cans in front with a pile driver from the right side of the park and then Forres went into a 3-1 lead when Keith defender Clark put the ball into his own net just before Scott Graham hit another Forres goal with a stunning free-kick to give the Cans the full three points.
Forres Mechanics travelled to the home of the League leaders today and came away with no points and no goals scored to show for their efforts. The first half started badly for Forres when they had to make a substitution after only five mins when Craig McGovern limped off with a knock to his knee and then were forced into a second change after 35 mins when Lee Fraser had to come off with a head wound which disrupted the side, so it was no suprise when Buckie took the lead just before half-time through John McLeod. The second half didn't get much better for Forres when McLeod scored again with his second and then Sam Urquhart added Buckie's third to ensure the home sides great start to the season continue. FT Buckie Thistle 3 Forres 0.
After the loss at Brora, we looked to bounce back, firstly welcoming Deveronvale to Mosset park. To be honest it has been our worst performance to date, however the most pleasing aspect was our ability to get the three points when having not played well.
Box to box our football was not good enough, with an over reliance on going long to Lee Fraser. However we defended resolutely throughout, and were clinical in front of goal. The combination of those two elements were good enough to get us the home win.
We then welcomed Fraserburgh and fell to a disappointing 2-0 defeat. This game highlighted to me that at this level small margins are the difference between winning and losing. We played better than we did the previous week, creating more than ten chances, but failed to take any, whereas the Broch had four shots at goal and scored twice. Effectively a flip reversal on the game against Vale, where we wereclinical, this time the Broch took their chances.
Forres Mechanics lost an early goal when Dean Cowie scored just after 6 minutes and 25 minutes later they were two down when Marc Lawrence doubled his sides lead to take the away side into the half-time break ahead. Both clubs were unable to take their chances in the second half to leave Fraserburgh taking all three league points away with them. FT Forres 0 Fraserburgh 2
