Match Report


Academy had four first team regulars missing today; Alan Farquhar, Gary Weir, Davie Allan and Andrew Hardwick, but they still managed to bounce back following last weekend's disappointment against Nairn to rack up an impressive 2-0 win away to Deveronvale at Princess Royal Park.

Young Ross Maciver, who signed on loan from Ross County yesterday, made the starting line-up. Andrew Miller and Conor Dunnett were drafted in to help out.

A header from Michael Steven on the stroke of half-time put Academy into the interval with the advantage. On 65 minutes Academy were awarded a penalty which was taken by Sam Mackay. Keeper Grant Pennet saved it but Mackay buried the re-bound.

Vale's Steven Davidson picked up a second booking and was sent for an early bath with 12 minutes remaining, and Academy went on to shut the game out and head back up the A9 with the three points.

The home side started brightly and had a great chance early doors to take the lead but Callum Murray's effort crashed off the post.

Paul Sutherland and Lewis Dunbar also found themselves in great positions inside the Academy box but neither of them could get their shots on target.

As it looked to be going into the break a stalemate Richard Macadie fired a free kick into the Vale box for Michael Steven to rise the highest and he headed passed Grant Pennet.

0 - 1

Half Time - Deveronvale 0 - Wick Academy 1

Academy found themselves two up on 65 minutes. Ross Maciver was taken down on the box by Liam Forbes and referee Alex Shepherd pointed to the spot. Pennet managed to block Sam Mackay's spot-kick but Mackay followed in and smashed home the rebound for his 16th goal of the season.

0 - 2

14 minutes Steven Davidson fouled Richard Macadie and that earned him his second booking of the game leaving Vale to finish the game with only 10 men.
