    <img class="imgleft" align="left" alt="" src="http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/news/data/upimages/razoman.jpg">A confident Tain Thistle made very easy work of a downhearted Invergordon Social Club side tonight.<br /><br />Despite being without player-manager Arron Christie, forward Daniel Christie and winger Colin Burry, assistant boss Steven Martin named a decidedly strong eleven, with Liam Rostock returning to a side already boosted by the goal scoring of comeback star Garry Perks. Young striker John Maclellan was handed a return to the side up front, while Kyle Oliver also stepped into the midfield.<br /><br />Liam Rostock had the look of a player who had never been away as he slotted home with ease to give Tain a first half lead after eight minutes. Straight from kick off however, former Tain man Gordy Oman stunned the away side with an equalizer. The leveller was all-she-wrote for the Social men however as Tain pounced back with two further goals in the first half, from Darran Goller and Garry Perks.<br /><br />Thistle reached their comfort level at 6-1 in the second half as Liam Rostock rounded his performance off with a hat-trick, while Martyn Farquhar also found the net.<br /><br />As if Social's evening wasn't bad enough, a series of unsavoury incidents led to red cards for both defender Scott Stirling and substitute Ali Connell, during the second half.<br /><br />Rounding off the win for Thistle was Garry Perks, scoring a further two for his hat-trick, while Darran Goller netting a second for a brace. Completing a ten goal rout was Craig Nimmons, who saw his looping corner deflected into the net. The Social Club offered a late goal through Sean Broadbent to bring the final score to 10-2.<br /><br /><b>Team:</b><br />Martin, Rice, Cowie (Johnston), Farquhar, Brand, Oliver (Cameron), Perks, Goller, Rostock, Ross, Maclellan (Nimmons)<br /><br /><b>Subs not used:</b><br />Rattanaphithak, Sutherland<br /><br /><b>Goals:</b><br />Liam Rostock 8, 50, 58, Goller 16, 74, Perks 35, 76, 85, Farquhar 55, Nimmons 89<br /><br /><b>Bookings:</b><br />None<br /><br /><b>Man of the Match:</b><br />Garry Perks<br /><br /><b>Match details:</b><br /><a href="http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/matchdetails.php?id=397">http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/matchdetails.php?id=397</a>
