Boss Buchan delighted with victory

After the match a delighted Locos co boss Scott Buchan said: “We faced up to overhead conditions and a soft but good pitch so it was always going to be a battle, you get that type of game in this League.

“A day for rolling the sleeves up and getting stuck in. I think our guys did that brilliantly, especially in the second half when we came under pressure.

“We gave away two soft goals but I think the Turriff camp will feel likewise. A great strike from Chris Herd but a centre back allowed to run from 60-80 yards. And we failed to cut out their right back coming through to create the second. Fair play to Turriff but we’re delighted with the win, it’s a difficult place to come to.

“Genuinely I didn’t see anything that merited a penalty for them, but I am only going with what I saw. I did ask the Referee about it at the end, there were a few players going for the ball and it was a bit strange.

“What a save from Andy Reid from the spot kick and he bettered it with his next one, an unbelievable point blank save from James Brownie. An absolutely tremendous save, it’s won us the game.

“There were heavy legs concerned when you look at Bavidge’s miss, but we did have chances before that. Jordan Leyden did really well coming on for his debut. We did actually want to get David Ross and him on earlier than we did but we had to take Neil McLean off as he wasn’t feeling well and that meant some re-organisation.

“It makes it all the sweeter getting the three points, as it sent the players off for their Christmas party with smiles on their faces”
