Lossiemouth Fort Wil­liam High­land League

FORT Wil­liam suf­fered another loss at the week­end, de­spite play­ing well in the sec­ond half.

The team were away at Lossiemouth and were dis­ap­pointed at the 2-1 de­feat af­ter their first vic­tory of the sea­son against Deveron­vale the pre­vi­ous week­end.

Al­ready two goals down, Fort striker John McLeod fired the ball in to the net in the sec­ond half, but it was not enough to turn the game around.

De­ter­mined, the side con­tin­ued to try to get a goal back and bat­tled un­til the fi­nal whis­tle but alas they couldn’t get that elu­sive equaliser and lost by the odd goal in three.

This Satur­day Fort Wil­liam will travel to take on bot­tom of the ta­ble Rothes at MacKes­sack Park. The game kicks- off at 3pm.

Rothes were on the wrong end of a 9- 0 score­line against a ram­pant For­mar­tine United at the week­end, so Fort Wil­liam will be con­fi­dent they can get a re­sult at the shell-shocked Speysiders.

The last three en­coun­ters be­tween the teams have pro­vided one win apiece and supplied an as­ton­ish­ing 17, so a crack­ing game is in prospect.
