Brechin City scored an 82nd minute goal to guarantee a point against local rivals, Forfar Athletic at Glebe Park on Saturday.

Speaking after the match, City manager Ray McKinnon said: “We were disappointed to let Forfar back into the game at 2-0 up.

“Their goal, we should have seen that out and went into half time 2-0 up. We didn’t follow the runner and the boy’s volleyed it into the box and the lad’s scored. That was disappointing. But it was a great game. On the balance of play, chances-wise, we’re feeling a bit disappointed not to have won the game.”

He continued: “We’ll take lots of positives out of that, people like Alan Trouten have come back in, that’s his first 30 minutes in the last seven weeks. You could see his quality so we’re pleased to have him back, we missed him.

“We’re hoping to have McAusland back and Tiger’s had 25 minutes today, he’s missed the last few weeks. We’re getting players back at the right time.”

McKinnon added: “I think if we took our chances in the first half it’s game over. Fair play to Forfar, they’re a good team - they kept going and put us under pressure. The second goal, it’s gone through a ruck of players then the third goal we should deal with it.”

Forfar manger, Dick Campbell, said: “I thought 3-3 was a fair result, I’m not that disappointed to be honest. I don’t think we did enough in the first half.”
