IRN-BRU SECOND DIVISION:
ALBION ROVERS 1
BRECHIN CITY 2
Albion Rovers remain second-bottom of the table after goals from Andy Jackson and Derek Carcary earned Brechin a come-from-behind win.
The Coatbridge men took the lead on the half-hour mark when Gary Phillips converted David Crawford's back-post cross at Cliftonhill on Tuesday night.
Phillips hit the bar before the break with the visitors responding within a minute of the restart when Jackson buried Craig Molloy's delivery.
And City secured the points when Carcary intercepted Alan Reid's short backpass to fire past keeper Matt McGinley.
Rovers boss Todd Lumsden said: "It's a sore one for us. We had chances in the first half to be further ahead and finish the game by half-time.
"To gift them a goal in the first minute of the second half was disappointing and then we make the mistake for the winner.
"I was quite happy with the first-half performance. We worked hard and pressed the ball. It was a lovely move which led to our goal.
"We're on a disappointing run in terms of results. We need to try and keep the camp happy and keep everyone positive to get out of this."
Brechin gaffer Ray McKinnon said: "It was crucial to get the equaliser so early in the second half and that is what we told the players at the break.
"Conditions were poor and it wasn't a great spectacle. It was a cool finish from Derek for the winner and I'm delighted for him."
