Brechin City manager Ray McKinnon said he was disappointed to not have won Saturday’s clash against Peterhead.

City were in control for much of the game, but Peterhead scored in the 88th minute to level the match.

Speaking after the game, McKinnon said: “It’s a tough place to come. I think overall we should have won, so I’m a wee bit disappointed.”

Identifying the turning point in the match, he added: “I think the crucial thing for us today was when Darren McCormack went off and we had to reshuffle the team. That reshuffle gave that bit of momentum to Peterhead.”

McKinnon felt there was positives to take from the match, explaining: “We’re playing well and we are going in the right direction.”

He finished: “I thought in the first half we were probably the more dominant side. We had some good opportunities that we never utilised. Even at one nil I thought we had a couple of half chances to put the game to bed - hitting the post, things like that.

“At one nil you’ll run the risk that they will get a chance at the other end and to be fair to Peterhead, they got one at the other end and they took it.”

Peterhead manager Jim McInally was honest, saying: “We were poor. We didn’t have enough crosses or shots so it was a good point all things considered.”
