Brechin travelled to face a Logie side who they had held at home in the first match of the season back in August.

The match was fairly open with both teams looking to get forward and create chances from the start.

From a short corner, Danny Wilson drove into the area with the ball and was wiped out with a late sliding challenge however the ref claimed he did not see it from his position, and he failed to award what many felt was the most blatant penalty kick of the season so far.

Brechin continued to press forward when the opportunity arose and Cameron Lightly found himself with a chance which he couldn’t convert.

Logie were looking quite dangerous too but the back four of Brechin was holding firm.

With around 10 minutes of the first half remaining Logie took the lead when Brechin lost possession in the attacking third; Logie broke at speed and their player made no mistake with a fine finish.

In the second half Logie came out fired up and looked the more likely to score although the Brechin side continued to work hard to prevent this and get forward when they could.

Brechin were awarded a free kick centrally about 20 yards from goal and Kieran Longmuir fired a good effort towards the roof of the net, but the Logie keeper managed to stretch and tip the ball over.

Logie’s second soon followed when a free kick from out wide found an unmarked player who planted his header into the corner.

Brechin were awarded an overdue penalty when William Rattray was brought down inside the area.

Fraser Jamieson stepped up and his kick clipped the post before going wide.

The Brechin side did not let their heads drop after that but as the game progressed Logie added another two to give a final score which was harsh on the Brechin team.

Full time: Logie 4-0 Brechin

The lads did well against a well organised and physical Logie side. They battled admirably and were by no means second best. The final scoreline is a reflection of how Logie were ruthless when they made chances but the boys should be happy with the effort they put into the encounter.
