Brechin City secured a comfortable win away to struggling East Fife at the weekend, netting twice to take all three points.

City could easily have won by a greater margin, with several chances drifting wide of the mark.

Speaking after the match, manager Ray McKinnon commented: “There was a lot of pressure of East Fife and I thought we played really well without playing as well as we probably could.

“If we had a little bit more composure in the final third we could have ran out easy winners which is strange because our front four have been doing well.

“We defended really well and Garry Kenneth was outstanding.”

Brechin will end their season at home this Saturday, as they host Stenhousemuir.

City will be keen to end the season on a high note, and a win over the Warriors would mean that McKinnon’s side finish the season with an encouraging record of four wins and draw in the final five fixtures.

However, it’s likely to be tough match with Stenhousemuir still in the hunt for a promotion play-off place.

If both Ayr and Forfar lose, Stenhousemuir could finish fourth should they get a positive result at Glebe Park.
