Gary Axworthy was on the scoresheet for Blairgowri­e but Mark Brash’s men were defeated 4-1 away at Lochee Harp.

Blair went into Saturday’s Midlands League encounter hoping to kick on after a hardfought draw against Broughty Athletic the previous week.

However, hosts Harp wasted little time in getting on the scoresheet and took the lead in the third minute.

The visitors enjoyed a lot of possession at Beechwood Park but didn’t create any clear-cut chances.

Harp extended their lead after capitalisi­ng on a Blair mistake.

The east Perthshire side were then awarded a penalty in the 44th minute, which Axworthy dispatched making it 2-1 to Harp at half- time.

Blair came out for the second half looking to get back into the game, with Axworthy hitting the post.

They came close again on a couple of occasions but, ultimately, it wasn’t to be.

Harp sealed the points with two more goals before the final whistle.

Blairgowri­e will need to pick themselves up ahead of Saturday’s home derby against Coupar Angus.

Coupar go into the tie after losing 2-0 at home to Dundee Downfield at the weekend.

The derby kicks off at 2.30pm at Davie Park.

• The October 10 Blairgowri­e JFC berrypicke­rs’ lottery numbers were 4, 5, 8 and 19.
