If ever the saying "a game of 2 halves" applied to a football match, ir was certainly the case for this match.
Clach started brightly and were on top of the game pretty much from the off, but as with most derby matches, pretty football was in shot supply. Both sides in fairness were trying to get the ball down and play good passing football. Clach did however take the lead with the first proper good move of the game. Robbie Thompson's neat through ball released the excellent Lewis Nicolson and his first time cross was met by James ANDERSON to net his 16th of the season. Clach went the width of a post from going 2 up, but Lewis Nicolson's lob hit the outside of the post.
The second half saw a complete role reversal with Nairn a much improved side after the break. They stopped the visitors playing and tested keeper Martin Mackinnon with several efforts. Nairn looked the more likely to score and that they did in the 69th minute when Main planted a header past the Clach keeper.
