Andy Jackson netted his 10th goal of the season as Brechin City eased to victory over Scottish League One rivals East Fife.

Bobby Barr beat Greg Paterson with a low, left-footed strike midway through the first half for the opener.

Jackson received a Steven Robb pass before firing a low drive into the net shortly before the break.

And Robert Thomson sealed the victory with a lob from the left-hand side in the second half.
