Brechin City 2-1 Stenhousemuir

Brechin extended their unbeaten League One run to 15 games after battling back to beat struggling Stenhousemuir.

Colin McMenamin fired the visitors in front with a tidy left foot finish in the first two minutes.

Andrew Jackson squared it, though, finishing Ryan Ferguson's delivery.

Paul McLean provided the winner in the second half with a tap-in after excellent work from Robert Thomson, and Ciaran Summers was denied a late leveller by keeper Graeme Smith.
