MANAGER Craig Campbell says Brora Rangers are still in the Highland League title race as they continued their good form on Wednesday night with a 2-0 win over Lossiemouth.
Jordan Macrae scored twice in the second half on the Moray Coast to move the Cattachs within seven points of league leaders Fraserburgh with a game in hand.
Fraserburgh lost their first league game of the season with a 2-1 home defeat against Rothes in their previous match as it looks like being the closest title race in the Highland League in years.
The Cattachs are on a strong run in the title race and are among a clutch of teams looking to make up ground on leaders Fraserburgh.
Only seven points separate the top five as the season approaches the halfway point.
Campbell says Brora Rangers has a chance of defending their league crown this year, but knows that there is still a lot of football to be played.
“People were saying the league was over, but if you know the Highland League it’s never over before Christmas,” Campbell said.
“There’s still a lot of football to be played, a lot of difficult games coming up for us in December and over the Christmas period as well, so we’ll just keep taking each game as it comes and see where it gets us.”
Brora Rangers head back to Moray tomorrow as they continue their title challenge against Keith at Kynoch Park.
The Cattachs are also safely through to the quarter-finals of the Highland League Cup after a 3-0 win at Wick Academy.
All the goals at Harmsworth Park came in the first half with Jordan Macrae, Dale Gillespie from the penalty spot and Matthew Wright all finding the target in Caithness.
