Football: Brechin City, 0; Hamilton, 1.
Promotion-seeking Hamilton were lucky to take both points at Glebe Park on Saturday. The only goal of the game came from an unhappy slip-up by ‘keeper Jed Reilly, who gave Gus McLeod a gift goal after 77 minutes. In the first half particularly the homesters put up a strong defence with Gillespie and Britton doing yeoman service. But the homesters were weak in attack.

Football: Brechin Vics, 1; Carnoustie, 3.
Carnoustie took the lead from the spot, after Watson of Vics handled in the box. In 33 minutes, Beedie equalised. Six minutes later, Smith put Carnoustie back in front before netting against two minutes before half-time.
