Man of the Match:
Tain Thistle will play their final league game of the season this Wednesday, August 11th. The Jags are still to play local rivals Inver, in a game rescheduled from May. The game was postponed following a head injury, with Thistle 2-1 up at the 75 minute mark.
Thistle currently sit in third place with 20 points, with Inver trailing by three.
Invergordon Social Club avoided a repeat of their Saturday humiliation at the hands of Tain Thistle tonight, as they fell to a more respectable 4-2 defeat, with Thistle ending their final home game of the year with a win.
Thistle welcomed back Daniel Christie, in for the departing Garry Perks, while Michael Brand also returned.
The Social Club men pegged Thistle back with a 1-0 lead at half time, before Darran Goller netted his tenth of the season to equalize. Liam Rostock scored the Jags' second, before Robbie Ross made it 3-1. The Invergordon men were able to pull the affair back to 3-2, but substitute John Maclellan was on hand for Tain to make it 4-2, putting the game beyond the Social men.
Thank you to Andy Murray, Thistle supporter for the match report.
