Barr rescues point for Fifers
Brechin's run of four consecutive victories came to an end after a 2-2 draw away at East Fife.
The visitors took an early lead as Alan Trouten converted Derek Carcary's cross from close range.
Jonathan Brown was denied a second by a stunning save from Calum Antell.
Brechin goalkeeper Michael Andrews saved from Paul McManus and Collin Samuel, before East Fife equalised after 28 minutes as Darren Smith's corner was headed in by Samuel.
Two minutes later Brechin were back ahead as Carcary fired into the bottom corner from 12 yards.
But Robert Barr found the top corner from 25 yards out to ensure the sides were level at the break.
Ryan Stewart went close to winning it for Brechin on 90 minutes, but Antell tipped over his well-struck effort from the edge of the box.
