Bonar Bridge took a massive step to avoid finishing bottom of the North Caledonian League when they won 2-1 at Thurso last Saturday.

The victory moved Bonar Bridge six points clear of Thurso at the foot of the table with the two teams set to meet again at Migdale tomorrow.

A win for Bonar Bridge would almost guarantee them avoiding the wooden spoon for the first time in a full league competition since re-entering in 2019.

After a goalless first half, Bonar Bridge took the lead two minutes after the break with a strike from Robbie Breen.

However, Michael Petrie equalised for Thurso in the 57th minute.

With 11 minutes remaining, Bonar Bridge regained the lead when Jack Corbett scored what proved to be the winner.

Golspie Sutherland return to action tomorrow on the search for silverware when they host Loch Ness in the North Caledonian Cup quarter finals.

Golspie were in action on Wednesday night when they defeated Alness United 3-2 at King George V Park.

Golspie scored through two penalty kicks from Alfie Mackay and Grant Macnab with Robbie Murray scoring inbetween.
