The Stags have a game in hand on the Elgin outfit and two games in hand on Mackie FP who are 10 points ahead in sixth.

The victory at the Naval Grounds in Invergordon was only the Stags’ second league win of the season.

Head coach John Mann said the win against a Grammar side that are second in the league was huge.

“The simple answer was that everything just clicked,” he said.

“We didn’t change anything that we have done over the past month.

“We scored within the first minute, scored in five minutes and for a change we weren’t chasing the game. Passes were sticky and tackles were being made and everything just clicked.

“Aberdeen Grammar took a full-strength squad and had a couple of first team players in their team. We were just the better team on the day.”
