Brechin City 0 - 1 Forfar Athletic

Saturday 10th September 2011
C Templeman (61)

Forfar enjoy away-day win

Christopher Templeman scored Forfar's winner as they recorded their first away win of the season with a 1-0 victory at Brechin.

In a first half of few chances, the home side almost opened the scoring after 43 minutes when David McKenna's header came back off the post.

And with Forfar creating more in the second period, they were rewarded on the hour when Martyn Fotheringham's corner fell to Templeman who fired low into the net.

The hosts were reduced to 10 men when substitute Derek Carcary was dismissed for lashing out after a rash Christopher Hegarty challenge.

David McKenna almost snatched an injury-time equaliser for Brechin, but fired wide from the edge of the area as Forfar hung on.

No worries for Weir

Brechin City boss Jim Weir has a full complement of players available to him ahead of his side's clash with local rivals Forfar, after strikers Jim Lister and Graeme Weir were passed fit after recent knocks.

Weir's side won their last encounter 2-1 at Albion Rovers, and Weir is hoping that his players can take that momentum into this weekend.

"We had lost a goal to Dumbarton the week before in injury time, so to win the game at Albion in the same manner was a very different feeling," he said.

"The players were really upbeat and that has carried on during training throughout the international break and I am sure it will benefit us against Forfar."

Forfar include their recent loan signings from Aberdeen, defender Joe Shaughnessey and wide man Nicky Low, in their squad.

Manager Dick Campbell has been forced to rule out both of his sons, Iain with an ankle injury and Ross because of a shoulder problem, but otherwise has no major injury worries.

Station Park assistant manager Ian Campbell said: "There were signs against Airdrie in our last game that things were falling into place for us. The arrival of Joe and Nicky has built on that and created real competition for places which is always a good thing.

"We are looking forward to going to Brechin and showing that we are moving in the right direction after a slow start."
