Ray praises side’s desire

Brechin moved to third place in the SPFL League One following a 2-1 victory over Stenhousemuir.

The win has also seen City extend their unbeaten run to 15 league matches - making them Scotland’s most inform team.

Speaking after the match Brechin manager Ray Mckinnon said: “It was quite flat today. It wasn’t a great game but I think the important thing is we got the three points.

“At this stage of this season, we’re playing four games in 10 days, I’ve got 14 players available, it’s a fantastic result.”

The manager had plenty praise for his side, adding: “Their commitment is great. Their desire is great. They weren’t brilliant today, but we got in great areas and we probably could have buried the game.

“I though Gerry McLauchlan was outstanding today. He’s got a great desire. Hamilton was good, McLean was good, he was up scoring goals. Craig Storie was excellent and Molloy was good. I’m talking about attitude, effort and desire.”

McKinnon admitted he had a few “walking wounded” players in the side ahead of last night’s (Tuesday) home fixture against Dunfermline Athletic.

The club are in action at home again this Saturday (March 7), when they welcome Airdrieonians.
