Wick Academy went into this match hoping to bounce back from the disappointment of last weeks North of Scotland Cup defeat to Forres Mechanics. Huntly came to the Harmsworth Park looking to build on the solid start made by newly re-appointed manager Steve Paterson to the Black and Golds.
Wick made three changes to the team that lost out to Forres with Martin Gunn, Sam Mackay and Alex Lamb being replaced by Bryan McKiddie, Shane Sutherland and Andrew MacLeod respectively. Only Alex Lamb made the bench for the home team with Stevie Cunningham returning from his break as an unused sub.
Former Scorrie Grant Campbell turned out for the visitors having recently signed as a free-agent after leaving Wick by mutual consent and it was through him that Huntly continually looked dangerous.
After this game though, the management duo of Munro and Hughes must be wondering what they have to do to get the normally free-flowing Scorries returning to form. For the fifth week running, Academy failed to start the game and, unlike previous weeks, they failed to find the spark necessary to ignite the second half in this one too.
