TWO goals in as many minutes were costly for Nairn County as Fraserburgh fought back from a half time deficit to take all three points at Station Park.

Conor Gethins put County in front with an exquisite lob midway through the first half. A long ball forward was knocked on by Robbie Duncanson into Gethins's path and Irishman did the rest, lifting the ball over exposed Fraserburgh goalkeeper Scott Cowe.

The Broch had a great chance to level before the break when Michael Morrison conceded a penalty but County goalkeeper Calum Antell was equal to the kick, parrying it on to the post and clear.

However, the visitors turned the game on its head with a lightning start to the second half. They leveled through Marc Dickson's header as he was unmarked to meet a cross with the left and header back across goal and beyond Antell.

Then, Fraserburgh won possession shortly after the restart and again the ball was worked down the left. This time, it was Willie West who was the man over at the far post to sweep the ball home and complete the turnaround.

Despite Nairn pushing for a leveler, the Fraserbuurgh defence stood up to everything the hosts could muster in the final third.
