Buckie Thistle assistant manager Lewis MacKinnon hailed the impact of substitute Sam Urquhart in his side’s 2-1 victory against Clachnacuddin.
On-loan Ross County player Jack Murray fired Buckie in front before Clach responded through Thomas Lewis.
But Urquhart notched the winner for the Jags from the penalty spot against his former team following a foul on Kyle Macleod, much to the delight of MacKinnon.
He said: “It was a good three points for us.
“We controlled the first half without creating too many chances.
“We dropped our standards after the break and that allowed Clach back into the game.
“It became a much tougher game but the boys lifted their game and I felt they thoroughly deserved the win.
“It was pleasing for Sam to score the winner.
“He is superb at penalties and I think he has scored eight or nine of them already this season.
“I noticed the Clach player Scott Graham was talking to their goalkeeper (Jake Williamson) and telling him where Sam normally likes to put his penalties so Sam put it the other way and showed great composure.
“Sam started on the bench but came on and had a positive impact, which was good to see.”
Clach’s next game will take place on Friday when they host Fort William at Highland Rugby Club’s Canal Park.
The Inverness club are unable to play at Grant Street as the result of a fire on Christmas Eve.
But Clach and Fort have agreed to play their upcoming fixture, that was initially scheduled for Saturday, on Friday night on the artificial surface at Highland’s rugby ground.
The game will kick off at 7.45pm.
