Lossie share the honours with Nairn in uninspiring Highland League clash

Lossiemouth and Nairn County shared the honours in an uninspiring Highland League contest at Grant Park on Saturday.

Lossie assistant manager Stuart Cameron bemoaned the lack of quality on show.

He said: “A draw was a fair result. The game was a bit of a non-event.

“Neither team played well enough to win it and, while some goalless draws can be entertaining affairs, I don’t think you could say that today. It probably did deserve to finish goalless. Both teams tried to get the win and worked hard enough but a point each was fair.”

Ronnie Sharp lamented his Nairn team’s lack of attacking prowess, saying: “I thought we were very poor in the last third, the quality of the final ball and decision-making were as bad as it has been for some time and probably cost us the win.

“It was a frustrating performance as I thought we controlled the game until we started throwing everyone forward to try and get the winner.

“We didn’t test their goalkeeper enough but that comes down to a lack of quality and players not using their brains in the final third. We never really looked like scoring.”
