Stenhousemuir pulled away from Brechin in League One following a six-goal thriller at Ochilview.

Darren Smith headed home after two minutes before Sean Dickson slotted into the bottom corner soon after.

Alan Trouten hit back for the visitors before half-time with an excellent finish into the roof of the net.

Josh Watt struck before Trouten got his second from the penalty spot, but John Gemmell headed home from a Kristopher Faulds cross to settle matters.
