Brechin City manager Ray McKinnon was “delighted” that his side secured a draw against Dunfermline Athletic at the weekend.

The two sides picked up eight bookings in a hotly contested match, with Mr McKinnon’s opposing number, Jim Jefferies, left ruing missed opportunities for all three points.

Speaking after the match, Mr McKinnon commented: “It was a good point in the end and a deserved one. I am disappointed with the goal we lost. The ball was flicked on and the referee decided it wasn’t offside.

“We fought back and I am delighted with the way we pushed at the end against a full-time team.”

Brechin currently have a number of injured players on the sidelines - including Derek Carcary and Ewan Moyes. Mr McKinnon added: “When we get our injured boys on the park we will have a good side.

“I can take a lot of positives from the game and we might have nicked it at the end.

“We are in a league where a lot of teams have made good signings and every match will be tough.”
