Scorer: Robertson (36 pen)

FRASER Robertson's penalty in the first half was enough for Clachnacuddin to secure all three points against Rothes at Grant Street Park.

The only goal of the game came nine minutes before half time when defender Stephen Rennie appeared to handle a free kick into the box to concede a penalty and Robertson made no mistake from 12 yards.

Clachnacuddin's lead was rarely threatened as they dominated possession  in the second half and created a number of chances but were denied by a string of superb saves by Rothes goalkeeper Darren McConnachie.

In the closing minutes of the game, Clach were furious they were not awarded a penalty when Stuart Leslie appeared to have been brought down by the goalkeeper after he circled McConnachie but the referee said there was no contact.
