Brora midfielder Dale Gillespie is disappointed his side is likely to fall just short in their bid to win the title.
The Cattachs top the table after beating Fort William in their final league game of the season, Buckie Thistle and Cove Rangers trail by two points but both have one game still to play, and if, as expected, the pair pick up full points at home to Strathspey Thistle and Lossiemouth on Saturday then Brora will slip to third place.
Gillespie said: “We are pretty disappointed as we dropped silly points in games we should have won, I will keep an eye out for the scores on Saturday, but it’s not looking good.”
Buckie are now favourites to win the championship with a win against bottom club Strathspey and the Jags have a superior goal difference.
Gillespie added: “Fair play to Buckie, they have done well and play a good style of football and I would be surprised if they didn’t win the title as theyhave done well.”
Brora finished their league campaign with a comfortable victory at Claggan Park, thanks largely to four goals from Craig Campbell.
The forward opened the scoring early when he converted a cross from Andrew Greig, before adding a second with a superb lob.
Fort William reduced the deficit shortly before the break through Scott Davidson’s 27th of the season, but Campbell then added to his tally with a double midway through the second half, and Brora rounded off their victory late-on through Martin Maclean.
Disappointed Fort manager Ally Ewen said: “We were all over the place for the first 15 minutes and handed Brora a two-goal lead.
“I was pleased with the effort but disappointed decisions when against us, Brora were clinical and Craig Campbell took his goals well.”
