Forfar Athletic 0-1 Brechin City
Andrew Jackson hit the only goal of the game as bottom club Brechin gave their League One survival hopes a boost with a win at 10-man Forfar.
Thomas O'Brien's first-half header was easily stopped by Graeme Smith.
Craig Molloy pulled an effort wide before Derek Young was shown a red card for his second bookable offence after a foul on David Bates.
And Brechin made them pay when Isaac Layne played in Jackson and he drilled the ball past Robert Douglas.
