Brechin City 2-1 Albion Rovers

Substitute Liam Coogans scored a late winner against Albion Rovers to lift Brechin City off the bottom of Scottish League One.

Rovers had led through Alistair Coul, who collected a pass from Spas Georgiev to net with a left-foot shot.

Roberts Thomson's rising shot brought Brechin level as the match entered its final 10 minutes.

And Thomson set up Coogans to hit the winner and move Darren Dods' side above Cowdenbeath, who now prop up the table.
