Brechin Vics returned to winning ways following a 2-1 victory over Lochee Harp in the league.

They immediately took the game to Harp with McKay advancing down the right only for his cut back to be out of the reach of Fertacz.

Harp showed their intent on four minutes but the shot from 20 yards was high and wide. They came closer on six minutes when a Scrimgeour free kick was saved by Robbie.

Vics almost took the lead on 10 minutes when a Young effort from a Renilson corner was cleared off the line.

Fertacz had an attempt on 15 minutes but shot wide after drifting past two Harp defenders.

Vics’ next chance came on 22 minutes when Strachan had a header on target, but his effort was easily saved.

Scrimgeour of Harp once again had a free kick 25 yards out and only a great Robbie saved prevented the opening goal.

Vics took the lead on the half hour mark when a Wilson cross was headed powerfully into the back of the net at the back post by McKay.

They extended their lead on 52 minutes when Young thundered a 25 yard shot high into the corner of the net, giving the ‘keeper no chance.

Vics were in control of the game at this point and a great passing move involving King, McKay and Fertacz resulted in the latter bringing out a good save from the Harp ‘keeper with a header from eight yards.

Harp pulled a goal back on 90 minutes when Blair scored with a header from 12 yards after a cross from the right.

A club spokesperson said: “Manager King was delighted to get back to winning ways and although disappointed to a lose last minute goal was pleased with the overall performance.”

Vics are at home this Saturday (October 18), when they will welcome Kirkaldy to Victoria Park. Kick off is at 2.30 p.m.
