Brechin City were on the right side of a late goal when they recorded a 2-0 victory against 10-man Stenhousemuir on Saturday (December 20).

The victory has seen City’s unbeaten run extend to 10 matches.

However, City manager Ray McKinnon admitted his players didn’t perform as well as they have previously this season.

Speaking after the match, he said: “It was a good result considering we never played that well at all. A lot of credit goes to Stenny who went down to 10 men and they played extremely well.

“On the back of the last nine games we were losing goals in the last minute of games - games we should have won. It’s a nice relief to get over the line, even though we never really played that well.”

McKinnon added: “We’ve been outstanding in the last nine games, played some great football and never got the rewards. Today we didn’t play particularly well and we got the rewards.

“The main things is we got the result, so we are really pleased with that.”

Prior to the Stenhousemuir game, Brechin confirmed that Dundee striker Craig Wighton had joined the club on loan. The youngster is highly rated, with Dundee manager Paul Hartley hoping regular first team football will help his development.
