Three points in the bag

Brechin City manager Ray McKinnon admitted the match against Stirling Albion could have been a “potential banana skin” for his side.

However an injury time goal from Andy Jackson sealed a 2-1 victory for City, relegating Stirling at the same time.

Speaking after the match McKinnon said: “Going in to the game today, everyone knows it’s a potential banana skin for us. It was important we got the first goal - which we did. We created 10 good chances and we should have been out of sight - and I mean really out of sight. I think they had one chance the whole game and they scored from it. The main thing today was three points. We’ve achieved that. We probably could have done it a lot easier and lot more comfortable.”

Talking about the missed chances, McKinnon added: “When you create so many chances and don’t take them you are always liable to get hit by a sucker punch and that it what happened. We still had three good chances to score and luckily Jackson popped up in the last minute of injury time and scored.

“It was a relief for us because it certainly was a game we should have won handsomely. But we have won it so lets move on to the next game.

“It’s three points in the bag which is exactly what we are looking for.”
