Airdrie hold on for point

Brechin dropped to eighth place in Scottish Second Division after being held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by 10-man Airdrie.

It was the Diamonds who edged in front after 13 minutes when Rhys Devlin's pass found top scorer Ryan Donnelly and the striker stroked the ball into the bottom corner for his 10th goal of the season.

Airdrie were reduced to 10 men in the 25th minute when Kieron Stallard was shown red for a bad foul on Graham Weir and Connor Fairley tipped Charlie King's effort wide from the resultant free-kick.

Brechin levelled five minutes after the restart when substitute Nathan Blockley fouled King in the area and the veteran picked himself up to smash home the penalty, but City failed to go on and press home their numerical advantage.

Brechin aim to turn fortunes around

Brechin will be missing Jim Lister for the visit of Airdrie as the striker starts a two-game ban.

Manager Jim Weir will also be unable to call upon defender Gerry McLauchlan, midfielder Craig Molloy and striker Derek Carcary through injury.

There was some good news for the Glebe Park boss, however, as Graham Weir and Paul McManus are expected to shake off a flu virus to feature in a game that Weir hopes marks a turning point in his side's season.

Weir said: "We are on a disappointing run but we have good players here and things will turn hopefully starting against Airdrie.

"We need to a win, get confidence flowing and I am sure that would start to generate the momentum required to take us on a run up the table."

Airdrie are without suspended centre-back David Lilley and injured duo Graeme Goodall and Ally Woodburn.

New signing and former Queen's Park youngster Kevin Green is added to the travelling party and either he or Craig Hill will deputise for Lilley.

Diamonds boss Jimmy Boyle said: "We have been inconsistent throughout the season and after beating Stenhousemuir well in our last game we have the chance to show that we can put a run of results together.

"Brechin are probably saying much the same thing and will want to win to climb over us in the table, but there is no excuse for us not producing the same type of performance as we did against Stenhousemuir."
