Brechin Vics suffered another defeat on Saturday when Blairgowrie ran out comfortable five-one winners.
Vics did have a number of clear-cut chances but again failed to take any of them.
Vics are struggling to recapture their form after such a long break because of the weather.
Russell was Vics scorer, slotting home form six yards in 80 minutes.
The local junor side are again at home this Saturday, when Downfield visit Victoria Park (kick-off 2.15 pm).
