Brechin City 1-0 Stenhousemuir

Robert Thomson's overhead kick gave Scottish League One bottom side Brechin City victory over Stenhousemuir.

There were no efforts on target in the first half, Brechin's Jonathan Tiffoney going closest when he shot to the right of goal.

Thomson broke the deadlock after the interval in outstanding fashion from a central position.

And the hosts saw out victory to stay level on points with Forfar Atheltic and two points behind Cowdenbeath.
