Stenhousemuir 2-2 Brechin City

Brechin City fought back from two goals down to draw with Stenhousemuir and seal the final promotion play-off berth in Scottish League One.

Martin Grehan headed Stenny ahead from Paul McMullan's corner and Alan Lithgow nodded their second, with Anthony Marenghi supplying the cross.

The visitors quickly pulled one back through Andy Jackson's shot.

Alan Trouten's strike levelled matters in the 20th minute and Grehan was sent off for two bookings after the break.

Stenny slip into the relegation play-off spot, two points below Ayr United, with one round of fixtures to play.

They visit relegated Stirling Albion next week while Ayr are at Forfar Athletic.
