After the match a delighted Locos co boss Scott Buchan said, “I think we deserved it because we stuck at it.
“We spoke before the game and said ‘let’s start again’. Lets start the season now. It’s been so frustrating and so annoying because we couldn’t get our team out there and our results were showing that.
“You get the likes of Neil Gauld back and that’s what he does. He just wants to score and hit the back of the net, he’d recorded quite a few efforts when you think of it. He had a shot blocked and a stonewall penalty. It’s incredible how it wasn’t given. I don’t mean for people to be sent off, it was just a stonewall penalty.
“For us with one game to go, it was a new start and a great way to start. We know fitness is not an issue for us and we know they’ll never stop trying for us. They sniffed it and went for it, then dug in at the end.
“Ryan Broadhurst was outstanding for us. We’ve had a few chats about what he needs to do to develop his game a bit. He has a lot of tremendous attributes, lacks in one or two areas but he takes it on board. You can see out there he is trying to put what we have told him into practice.
“That’s Mark Souter’s first start back after a broken ankle. It’s helluva chance to take and didn’t want to take, we’d rather he waited till pre-season. Needs must, we had no defenders there. I’m chuffed to bits for him. Martin Bavidge was back defending too, it all proved they want to win.”
Inverurie Locos last match of the season is this Saturday, April 18, against Fraserburgh at Bellslea
