Peterhead 3-0 Brechin City

Ten-man Brechin City's League One promotion hopes were dealt a blow with a heavy defeat at Peterhead.

A close-range Gary McDonald effort set the hosts on their way, before Colin Hamilton was dismissed for a second booking in the 63rd minute.

Eight minutes later, David Cox converted a free-kick to double Peterhead's advantage.

Cox turned provider in stoppage time when his corner was met by Jordan Brown; City remain four points off top.
