Brechin secure play-off berth
Brechin booked a Scottish Division Two play-off place while Stranraer boosted their survival prospects following a 2-2 draw at Glebe Park.
Goalkeepers Craig Nelson (Brechin) and David Mitchell (Stranraer) were in fine form in the first half and it seemed the sides would go in at the break all square.
But experienced French striker Armand One put the visitors ahead on the stroke of half-time - his first goal for the club - with a decent finish into the top corner following Sean Winter's cross.
Andy Jackson levelled for the home side in the 57th minute, producing an equally excellent effort from 18 yards to register his 17th goal of the season.
Alan Trouten then put Brechin in front, heading in a Ryan Stewart corner with seven minutes left, only for Craig Malcolm to respond with a close-range volley three minutes later to ensure a share of the spoils.
