Another superb victory in the bag and Brechin City look a wee bit more likely to pull off what looked impossible very recently - survival.

Goals from Andy Jackson and Lewis Spence gave City a 2-0 win at Airdrieonians, their third successive victory.

It’s a win that draws them level on points with Forfar Athletic and leaves them just two points behind Cowdenbeath in eighth, following a 1-1 draw between the sides on Saturday.

Albion Rovers stand between City and yet another win and Darren Dods believes he has learned enough from the clashes with Darren Young’s troops to get something from this clash.

He said: “We really wanted to keep our momentum going and it was always going to be a tough one at Airdrie. But that’s the first time we’ve won three in a row this season and they’re doing very well, they’re up sitting fourth in the league.

“It’s the team spirit and the team spirit has always been there, even when we were suffering heavy defeats to Albion Rovers and Peterhead. The atmosphere was ‘now or never’ because if we didn’t start picking up points then we were done.

“We got the result over Forfar and we’ve just built on that. You can see the confidence coming back to the players, we’re looking stronger at the back and we’re taking chances at the other end. Two weeks ago we were seven and 10 points adrift now it’s two to Cowdenbeath and we’re level with Forfar.

We’ve lost to Albion Rovers three times this season and we know it’ll be tough, they’ve just drew at East End Park and they make it difficult for teams. They’re really good on the counter attack but we’ve learned and we will be aware of that this weekend.”
