Highland maintained the pressure in the National One title race when they came from behind to secure a bonus point win against Glasgow Accies in Inverness.

The win keeps them in second place, six points behind Ayr, with Highland having now won seven of their eight matches in the league this season.

Highland fell behind to an early converted try, but levelled when Callum Carson's pass found Hugo Crush who outpaced the defence to score with Scott Fraser converting.

Fraser then added a penalty to give Highland a 10-7 lead and Crush grabbed a second try, which was unconverted, to give them an eight point lead at half time.

Magnus Henry scored Highland's third try, converted by Fraser to give them a 22-7 lead, but Accies were awarded a penalty try to reduce the deficit to eight.

But Fraser killed off the game when he secured victory and a bonus point with a try of his own, which he converted to give Highland a 15-point victory.
