Brechin City could relieve Forfar of Scotland’s ‘worst-ever’ tag

It illustrates just how stultifying Jerry Kerr found life upstairs at Dundee United that he jumped at the chance to resume his managerial career at lowly Forfar Athletic in 1974.

Livingston 3 - 0 Brechin: Livi secure second place

For so long in a remarkable season, David Hopkin stuck to his mantra that Livingston’s sole goal was to avoid relegation this season. Now, finally, with second place in the Championship secured with two games to go, he is allowing promotion to enter his thoughts.

Brechin City 0 - 1 St Mirren: Saints a point from the title

Almost there. St Mirren need just a point from their Tuesday night meeting with Dundee Utd at Tannadice to confirm their promotion as Championship title winners. For long stages yesterday it looked as though their old rivals Morton were going to allow the starting gun to be fired on their celebrations as they fought gamely to deny Livingston a victory that keeps the outcome of who is crowned champions still at least mathematically in doubt.

Morton 2 - 0 Brechin: City relegated after defeat

There was a compelling case here for the visitors to be playing in a different division next season, but the same could not be said for the hosts. Brechin, without a win in 29 fixtures, had their relegation confirmed after their 25th defeat and their failings were once again all too evident.

St Mirren 1 - 0 Brechin: Saints toil to victory

St Mirren made alarmingly heavy weather of seeing off the challenge of a rock-bottom Brechin who will go into March without registering a league win. Dominating possession wasn’t the issue for the Paisley men, however a lack of creativity and a genuine cutting edge were major issues, with on-loan Lewis Morgan, as he has been since joining Celtic, a peripheral figure for Saints who despite not being tested, did not really look like a team with an 11-point cushion at the top.

A stoppage time strike from Alex Jakubiak gave rejuvenated Falkirk a dramatic victory and denied battling Brechin only their fifth point of the season.

Celtic 5 - 0 Brechin: Moussa Dembele left out after enquiries

Celtic produced what Brendan Rodgers called “a professional performance” to blitz Brechin City and breeze into the fifth round of the Scottish Cup. The fact Moussa Dembele did not contribute to that on an afternoon in which Rodgers fielded his strongest available side the Irishman intimated afterwards was no mere coincidence.
