City in a two-two share at East Fife

BRECHIN City had to settle for a share of the spoils at East Fife on Tuesday evening, despite twice taking the lead.

But it could have been worse, with the visitors’ keeper saving a Robert Sloan penalty in the last minute.

Brechin had much the better of the early exchanges and took the lead when Paul McManus beat the Fifers’ keeper with a great shot from the edge of the box.

The lead was short-lived, however, Robert Sloan scoring from the spot after the ref spotted an infringement in the box.

Ten minutes from the break, Brechin were back in front, David McKenna curling the ball home.

Robert Sloan then netted his second of the game to square things at the break.

And two-two was how it finished, East Fife passing up the chance to take all three points by missing a last-gasp spot-kick.

This Saturday, Brechin City travel to take on struggling Forfar Athletic.
