Keith sees double as Keith roar in; HIGHLAND.

KEITH stretched their advantage at the top to five points after an emphatic 4-0 win over struggling Wick.

A Keith Robertson double put the Maroons in charge and Derek Nicol knocked the third just before half-time.

Dod Simmers grabbed the fourth five minutes from time to give his side real hopes of winning the title for the first time in 15 years with only three games left although second-placed Fraserburgh have two games in hand.

Their title hopes were delt a blow when they were held 2-2 at Peterhead in the final Buchan derby before the home side move to the Scottish League.

Scott Clark put Peterhead in front after 21 minutes and Derek Smith doubled the lead in 34 minutes.

Fraserburgh took a deserved point through Mike Stephen's double.

Scottish League-bound Elgin City were crushed 3-0 at Forres after a Roy Main double and a Martin Murphy goal.

A Mike Beattie penalty gave Cove a 1-0 win at Rothes while Nairn went down 2-0 at home to Buckie Thistle.

Huntly beat Fort William 3-0 and Brora crashed 5-1 at home to Deveronvale. Jamie McPherson scored the only goal as Clach beat Lossiemouth.
