After the match Locos co boss Kenny Coull said, “At half time Turriff deserved their lead so we changed our formation for the second half, competed a bit more.

“It was a big decision from the linesman to flag for handball for the disallowed Bavidge goal especially as the referee initially let it stand We were on the ascendancy, playing a lot of football in their half.

“The second goal was a great finish, the effort was good from the guys but Turriff play roughly the same team every week while we are struggling with our squad availability. We played well in the second half, Turriff were better in the first half, we didn’t compete enough.

“Luckily the game wasn’t away from us when we scored. Scott Mathieson has done well in goals since we lost Andy Reid. There is no doom and gloom, we are looking to get clear of these injuries and we’re keeping our heads up.

This Saturday Locos will be firm favourites to come out on top against neighbours Huntly at Christie Park, a team struggling at the bottom, but in a local derby anything can happen. Kick off is at 3pm.
