Brechin City manager Ray McKinnon was pleased with his side’s second half performance against Dunfermline Athletic at the weekend.

Two first half goals, which McKinnon said could have been defended better, made it a difficult challenge for City in the second half.

The challenge was even greater after Stuart Anderson was sent off four minutes after replacing Steven Robb.

Speaking after the match, Mr McKinnon said: “I’m disappointed with the way we started the game. We allowed them far too much time on the ball. They scored two goals. I thought we could have defended better.

“We got to grips with it though and second half we came out with a different team.

“I thought we were really dominant in the second half. We put pressure on them and got forward.

“Great credit to my team. They came back. They missed a great chance, at Jackson’s header. We should have scored. We do score and put pressure on them with 10 men and showed some good character.

Speaking about his opposition, he added: “All credit to Dunfermline. They are a good side and it’s a hard place to come, but I think our second half performance was excellent and there was a lot of positives to take from that.
