Football: Brechin City 1, Raith Rovers 1.
Only 300 saw Brechin City take a point from Raith Rovers at Glebe Park on Saturday. Better marksmanship would have put them right ahead. Raith could well have snatched a winning counter at the end. Raith were first to score, with Wallace netting in the 15th minute. Mitchell equalised from the spot for City in the 54th minute.

Football: Bankfoot 1, Brechin Vics 1.
A fast end-to-end game to start with, with both teams lacking a finisher, though Vics looked the likelier. Rourke had a shot cleared of the line, Martin, the Bankies’ keepr, hesitated in coming off his line and Marnie shot the ball over his head to give the visitors the points.
