  • Golspie Stafford 1 Tain Thistle 2

    The Jags were faced with their stiffest test of the season thus far when they travelled to Golspie to meet the local Stafford. A switch to Friday night gave Thistle an opportunity to move on to the same points tally as Dornoch City at the top of the table - and they grabbed the chance with both hands by securing a confident 2-1 win.

    With twenty minutes gone, Liam Rostock was brought down and a penalty was awarded to the Jags. The same man made no mistake from twelve yards to give Thistle a deserved first half lead.

    Midway through the second half, good approach play from Daniel Christie, Cammy Mackintosh and Darran Goller led to the latter firing towards goal, but his shot was blocked. The ball fell into the path of Rostock who slotted home to give Thistle a 2-0 lead.

    James Macrae pulled a goal back from a free kick for the home side six minutes later, before a dramatic late "stramash" saw each side have a player dismissed; Thistle's Ally Mackintosh amongst those given his marching orders after participating in a quick session of sparring.

    Team: Allan, D Mackay, Macleod, Dingwall, A Christie, Cowie (T Farquhar 75), Macgruer, D Christie, C Mackintosg, Goller, Rostock (A Mackintosh 85)

  • Tain Thistle 2 Dornoch City 0

    Thistle moved one step closer to the top of the table on Saturday when they defeated league leaders Dornoch City by 2 goals to nil at the Links. The match was won in comfortable fashion although the Jags left it late to finish the match off.

    Darran Goller gave Tain an early lead when he finished well to give Cameron Hook no chance in the Dornoch goal. It could have been 2-0 soon after were it not for Paul Cowie shooting over the crossbar. Thistle rarely looked flustered during a busy first half, but they couldn't extend the lead before the break.

    Shortly after the restart, Gordy Mackay was forced to withdraw due to injury and he was replaced by Dave Macgruer. The winner eventually came from Alan Duff after a great ball in field sent the defender clean through on goal and he beat Hook with a cool finish. Thistle had chances to add to the tally late on when Tony Farquhar headed over the bar and Goller hit the crossbar with a looped effort from an angle, but the score remained 2-0.

    Team: Allan, Durrand, Duff, D Mackay, A Christie, Cowie (Ross 78), G Mackay (Macgruer 50), C Mackintosh, Rostock, Goller (T Farquhar 85), D Christie
