Brechin City 1-5 Queen of the South

Brechin City became the first Scottish side in 126 years to go through a league season without a win after a heavy defeat by Queen of the South.

Stephen Dobbie put the visitors in front before Lyndon Dykes doubled the lead just before half-time.

Dobbie and Dykes added further goals in the second half before Dobbie lashed home his 27th goal - and fourth hat-trick - of the season.

Substitute Isaac Layne rolled home a late consolation goal for Brechin.

Not since Vale of Leven in the 1891-92 season has a Scottish side gone through an entire league campaign without tasting victory.

Queens, meanwhile, finish the campaign in sixth place, seven points shy of the play-off spots.
