Arbroath ran out winners over Brechin City in a goal-laden Scottish League One encounter.

Bobby Linn put the visitors ahead early on and he netted his second strike midway through the first half.

Linn then crossed for Michael Travis to head Arbroath's third only for Andy Jackson to pull one back for Brechin.

Robert Thomson's header further reduced the hosts' arrears but Paul McManus settled Arbroath's nerves with a header of his own.
