Strathspey Thistle picked up their fourth point of the season with a 2-2 draw against Clach – and it would have been three had it not been for two brilliant saves from visiting goalkeeper Dougie MacLennan late on.
Jags manager Ally Munro was pleased with his side’s encouraging performance.
He said: “We would have taken a draw at the start but we had chances to win all three points.
“Their goalkeeper made some fine stops to deny Adam MacLeod and then Dominick Edwards when they were both clean through.
“We’re pleased with the result.
“We had gone a few weeks without a game but my players were really up for the match and their fitness levels were excellent.”
The Lilywhites opened the scoring after 15 minutes through a Martin Macdonald header but Strathspey equalised in the 36th minute when MacLeod drilled the ball into the corner of the net.
Sean Webb restored Clach’s advantage six minutes from the break but Dominick Edwards restored parity early in the second half when he applied the finishing touch to a James McShane centre.
Clach assistant manager Brian MacLeod admitted that his side were fortunate to share the spoils.
He said: “I think it was a point gained for us as we were hanging on a bit at the end.
“Strathspey were probably the better team over the 90 minutes although it was a difficult game as conditions were terrible, strong winds and driving rain.
“They pinned us in during the first half and we just couldn’t get out.
“We managed to get in front after quarter of an hour. Had we taken a chance to make it 2-0 it might have been a completely different game but we let them back into it.”
