Thrills and spills in Moray derby

THE SHFLtv cameras witnessed four goals, two missed penalties and a red card in a tasty Moray derby at Lossiemouth on Saturday.

Keith ended a six-game losing streak by beating hosts Lossie 3-1 in a lively game (see highlights below).

Sean Keith had a first half penalty saved by Coasters’ keeper Errol Watson, before team-mate Craig MacAskill opened the scoring on the stroke of half time.

Darren Bailey headed Lossie level midway through the second half before a defensive error allowed Matty McDonald to restore Keith’s advantage.

Lossiemouth’s misery was completed when centre back Grant Mitchell was sent off for conceding a penalty, which Murray McCulloch converted.

There was still time for the home side to miss a penalty of their own through youngster Ryan Farquhar.

Coasters’ boss Stevie Dunn admitted: "The players know they let themselves down.

"We were probably favourites to win the game and the boys are maybe not used to that, so I don’t think they handled it well."

To make matters worse, Lossie have four key players missing from their team as they visit high flying Inverurie Locos this weekend.
