Football: Brechin City 2, Alloa 2.
In the typical gloom and glaur of a November afternoon the teams found it heavy going at Glebe Park on Saturday and many chances were lost. Alloa got something of a shock when City went ahead against the run of play, with Brian McNicoll scoring after 26 minutes. Wilson then equalised before the break with a freak goal. Russel flicked the ball past Beatson to put the Wasps in to the lead in the 65th minute, but Young equalised for City a minute later.

Football: Brechin City have been drawn against Ross County in the first round of the Scottish Cup at Dingwall on Saturday, December 14.
