Darren Dods was bitterly disappointed to see his side pegged back at the death in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Stenhousemuir.
His Brechin City had fought back from a goal down to deservedly lead 2-1 but the visitors to Ochilview Park conceded a very late corner, from which the Warriors grabbed an equaliser.
The result was enough to lift City off the foot of the League One table, although the gap to eighth-placed Stenhousemuir remains four points when it was so very nearly cut to just one.
It was frustrating for Dods but the manager admitted he was content to keep the unbeaten run going, and for the team to get off the bottom of the league for the first time this season.
He said: “It was disappointing to lose the goal so late on, especially from another corner which we keep doing.
“I wasn’t too happy at half-time and had a bit of a go at the players in the dressing room but they went out fired up and we managed to get back to 2-1.
“I took myself off at half-time, I felt a bit tight with that artificial surface and wanted to manage from the side.
“It’s good to get off the bottom of the table though and the gap to Stenny is still just four points.”
