Brechin City manager was not keen to be drawn into a discussion on the refereeing decisions made in the match against Forfar.

Referee Euan Anderson sensationally awarded a penalty to Forfar in the 89th minute, after it was deemed McLauchlan had fouled Templeman, although there seemed to be little contact.

Forfar then were awarded a second penalty in injury time when ‘keeper Smith brought down Swankie.

Speaking after the match, Mr McKinnon commented: “If we had dropped points today I would have been very disappointed, considering I thought we were excellent for 75 minutes of the game.”

On the penalty decision, and subsequent lack of a card for Smith’s challenge, he said: “If he [the referee] thinks it’s a penalty, he has to book him and he should be off the park. I’m not going to get drawn on it. We’ve won the game and on that side of things, I was disappointed with some of the decisions today, I really am. But you can’t get them all right.”

Mr McKinnon reserved his praise for his players, particularly Andy Jackson who he described as “unplayable.” He added: “It was the best game he’s played for Brechin since I’ve been here, and he’s played so brilliant games. I can’t speak highly enough of him.”
