Forfar Athletic 1-1 Brechin City

Andy Jackson's 13th goal of the season earned Brechin City a well-deserved point in a draw away to Forfar Athletic.

The visitors dominated much of the first half but were unable to break the deadlock.

Forfar took the lead seven minutes into the second half when Dale Hilson was played in by Neil McCabe and slotted past Graeme Smith.

But Jackson fired past Forfar's veteran goalkeeper Rab Douglas to seal a point.
