Fraserburgh came back from a goal down to secure a confidence-boosting win going into Saturday’s Scottish Cup third round tie at Championship club Falkirk.
Broch assistant-manager James Duthie said: “We started well, but then Lossie opened the scoring with a terrific goal from Scott Miller after a well-worked move.
“We had made quite a lot of changes to the side which drew 3-3 against Cove Rangers on Tuesday night as quite a few of the players had been carrying knocks, so we tried to freshen it up.
“It was a bit of a gamble but it paid off in the end.
“We weren’t at our best, but, as usual, we were determined and dogged to see it out.
“Getting the three points was what it was all about and we managed to do that by scrapping for everything.
“We did play some decent football, although we weren’t at our best by a long way.”
Lossiemouth manager Charlie Charlesworth said: “We are just the wrong side of the line just now, we lost 2-0 at Brora recently which is fair enough as they are the champions, but the 2-1 defeat to Keith the previous week was harder to take. There are fine margins in matches, but we are disappointed not to have taken something from the game.
“We scored a tremendous opener but then we gave away a soft free kick, they scored from it and we didn’t deal with set pieces all afternoon.
“We didn’t defend the corner for their second goal very well either.”
The home side took the lead in the 32nd minute when midfielder Miller powered in from distance, but Fraserburgh equalised 10 minutes later when Dean Cowie’s free kick was headed in by Marc Dickson.
In the 69th minute Willie West won the game for the visitors when he headed home from a corner.
