Brechin City 5-1 Peterhead

Robert Thomson netted a hat-trick as Brechin boosted their Scottish League One survival hopes with a convincing victory over Peterhead.

Thomson provided the assist for Andrew Jackson's fifth-minute opener before the striker found the net with a lob.

Nathan Blockley reduced the deficit on the half-hour mark but goals from Liam Watt and Thomson extended City's lead before the break.

In-form Thomson completed his treble in the 66th minute.
