Stenhousemuir 3-1 Brechin City

John Gemmell's hat-trick helped Stenhousemuir beat Brechin at Ochilview, their second victory over the Hedgemen in as many weeks.

Gemmell was on the scoresheet when the Warriors recorded a 4-0 victory over Brechin in the League Cup, and he again put the hosts ahead with a close-range header after 21 minutes.

Jonathan Stewart almost equalised three minutes later with a driven 25-yard strike.

Garry Brady's cross found Andrew Jackson in the 58th minute, and the Brechin striker found the bottom corner with a left-footed shot to notch his third goal of the season and level the scores.

Both sides struck the crossbar within the space of a minute, before Gemmell found the top corner with a 25-yard effort to put the home side back in the lead.

The Stenhousemuir summer signing completed his hat-trick with another stunning long-range effort in added time as Martyn Corrigan's men secured the win.
