Brechin City 2-3 Forfar Athletic

Veteran Darren Dods scored what proved to be the winner as third-place Forfar Athletic beat Brechin City and stayed a point behind leaders Stranraer.

Brechin led through Paul McLean's strike before Derek Young's deflected shot levelled matters.

Chris Templeman slotted in Forfar's second on the quarter-hour mark and Dods headed home midway through the second period.

Andrew Jackson nodded one back for the hosts but it was only a consolation.
