Forfar Athletic 0-0 Brechin City

Scottish Football League

Forfar Athletic and Brechin City each claimed a point in a scoreless Second Division encounter at Station Park.

James Lister's header from Neil Janczyk's cross forced an excellent save from Forfar goalkeeper Greg Paterson on 26 minutes.

Greg Ross had a headed chance for the hosts soon after but it was well saved by Craig Nelson.

Paterson was called into action again on 58 minutes to block a long-range effort from Paul McManus.

And there was to be no breakthrough, meaning fifth-place Brechin and Forfar three places below are still separated by two points.
