Brechin City 4-3 Airdrieonians

Alan Trouten scored a very late winner for Brechin City after Airdrieonians had battled back from three down in a thrilling match at Glebe Park.

Ryan Donnelly's header, Trouten's first strike and a shot by Andy Jackson put the hosts in command.

James Lister nodded Airdrie's first before Brechin's Greg Cameron was sent off for serious foul play.

A header from Lewis Coult was followed by Nathan Blockley's leveller but Trouten's second won it for the hosts.

And that close-range strike in stoppage time moved Brechin out of Scottish League One's relegation zone and increased the gap between themselves and bottom side Airdrie to eight points.
