MANAGER Conor Gethins is looking for an improved performance from Clachnacuddin when they face Inverurie Locos again tomorrow after they lost 4-2 in Inverness on Wednesday night.

Inverurie broke the deadlock after eight minutes when Sam Burnett got the final touch on an Aiden Wilson cross.

The visitors doubled their advantage midway through the first half with a powerful drive from Logan Johnstone.

Clachnacuddin pulled one back before half time when they were gifted an own goal from Grey Mitchell who deflected a free kick into his own net.

Inverurie made it 3-1 when Calum Dingwall’s corner kick flew straight into the net. Fergus Adams reduced the deficit to one when he fired home from close range. But Inverurie made it 4-2 with 17 minutes remaining when Jay Halliday fired home.

Gethins said it was a disappointing evening and will look to put that right at Harlaw Park on Saturday.

“I thought that we started the better team. But we lacked awareness at the crosses which allowed their boys a free shot which is unacceptable.

“After the fourth goal I felt that we went flat. But we won’t do that again and we will go back to the drawing board on Saturday.

“We will take the same squad, but the starting team may vary.”
