  • Dingwall Thistle 6-0 Tain Thistle

    Tain were outclassed in Dingwall today, as the club's first ever North Caledonian league game on astroturf ended in a 6-0 defeat to the home town's Thistle. John Macleod again put the Tain Jags to the sword with four goals.<br /><br />Tain Thistle were again without Lee Morrison at the back as manager John Oliver renamed the young makeshift defence of Sutherland, Farquhar, Oliver and Mackay. <br /><br />In goal, Ali Matheson was up to the test of the Dingwall attack for most of the first half, but could do little to prevent a three goal flurry after the quarter hour mark; Macleod forcing three past the Tain stopper after defensive errors let the striker in on three occasions for a first half hat trick.<br /><br />Tain's lone forward Russell Lawrie found himself in an advanced position a couple of times in the first half but the organised defence of Dingwall were more than up to the task.<br /><br />Gary Urquhart nodded home a fourth before the break to make it 4-0 at half time.<br /><br />The messy away side shipped a further two goals within minutes of the restart and at 6-0, the Dingwall men took their foot off the pedal.<br /><br />Daniel Christie came closest to hitting back for Tain with a long range effort in the second half; Neil Mackay doing well to palm the shot away for a corner. <br /><br />The introduction of substitute Martin Smith brought a new attacking option for Tain, with the action on the artificial surface noticeably calmer than in the first half. Smith found himself inches away from a consolation on 80 minutes at Mackay's near post, but fired his effort inches wide.<br /><br />The game finished 6-0 to Dingwall, taking them to 2nd place in the league, four points clear of Halkirk, Golspie and Muir of Ord; the latter losing 1-0 to league leaders Thurso with a 90th minute Mark Nichol goal separating the sides.<br /><br /><b>Team:</b><br />Matheson, Sutherland (Durrand), Farquhar, Oliver, Mackay, Austin, Mills, Mailley, Christie, Lawrie (Smith), Goller<br /><br /><b>Bookings:</b><br />None<br /><br /><b>Man of the Match:</b><br />-<br /><br /><b>Match details:</b><br /><a href="http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/matchdetails.php?id=268">http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/matchdetails.php?id=268</a>
