BUCKIE Thistle boss Graeme Stewart admitted he was far from happy with his side’s performance against Strathspey Thistle but delighted with the 2-1 win.

On a day when the club marked the 100th anniversary of Victoria Park, the Jags struggled to kill off a much improved Grantown side.

After spurning a number of chances in the first half, the home side surged into the lead six minutes after the restart when Scott Adams fired in after Kevin Fraser’s initial shot had been saved by Michael MacCallum.

Sam Robertson blasted in a second goal after a superb through ball from Mark McLaughlin. Former Jag Andy Skinner headed in for Strathspey in added time.

Stewart said: “I didn’t think we were very good. We need to be better than that.

“I thought we started well the first 15 minutes and if we had scored then it might have been different.

“Overall I am happy with three points but disappointed with the performance.

“I was wanting a clean sheet and I am gutte to concede that late goal.”
