Brechin City manager Ray McKinnon left Gayfield happy with the result, even if the weather didn’t allow for pretty football on the pitch.

Bobby Barr scored the only goal in the match to hand the Glebe Park side all three points, providing a much needed lift following the match at home to Forfar Athletic.

Speaking after the match, Mr McKinnon said: “It was important to come here and get a result and that is what we did today. I’m happy with that.”

“The wind was quite a factor today. It helped us in the first half and we knew it would help them in the second so it was just a case of being disciplined and digging it out today.

“It wasn’t going to be pretty because the conditions were conducive to pretty football.”

Brechin have had a mixed season so far, with suspensions and injuries providing a selection headache for the manager.

He added: “I think there has been a few things that have hurt us this season. Injuries, suspensions and not having the same team on the park every week.

“We had one fit player on the bench today and that was Allan Walker.

“If we can just get our squad fully fit we will be okay.

“We’ve got a good group, but it’s really been stop start.

“Hopefully, we can move on from here.”
