Nairn County made the most of their numerical advantage to maintain a twelve-match unbeaten run against ten-men Huntly.

Both had suspensions to deal with as Michael Clark and Ryan MacDonald were banned for their respective sides. Huntly had a number of selection problems with Ryan McRitchie away on tour with Inverness Caledonian Thistle’s under 20s side and Alexander Thoirs on holiday as Cory Ritchie was ruled out with injury for two weeks. There was a late change before kick-off when midfielder Kai Ross had to withdraw from the squad due to a bout of sickness with Alexander Jack returning from injury.


After five minutes of play, Matthew McDonald was denied at the near post when Dylan MacLean got down to block the winger’s shot. McDonald came close about moments later after a Paul Napier corner was not dealt with.

With eight minutes gone, Kenneth McKenzie got down the left flank and played a low cross into the box for Adam Porritt to turn in from close range.

Huntly were reduced to ten men after twelve minutes of play when stand-in Captain Ross Still was sent off for denying a goalscoring opportunity with a challenge on McKenzie.

Just before the half-hour mark, Huntly’s McDonald got around the back of the visiting defence only for another good stop from Dylan MacLean to deny the former Keith player at the near post.

Nairn doubled their lead with six minutes of the half remaining when former Huntly midfielder Adam Naismith got onto a ball back across the box to curl low past the keeper for his second goal in as many games.

As the clock ticked down in the half, Max Ewan gave the visitors a three-goal cushion finishing with a low drive.

Substitute Aidan Sopel came close to grabbing a consolation for the hosts after the in-form Dylan MacLean stuck a leg to deny the on-loan winger.

Two goals late on wrapped up the win for County. A quick break upfield saw Cohen Ramsay forward from defence to fire to the back post.

With three minutes to go, there was a confrontation between Paul Napier and Dylan MacKenzie. Both players were cautioned, however MacKenzie was lucky to remain on the pitch after raising his hands to Napier.

Left back Ramsay added his second only three minutes later with a left-footed drive.
