Around the Grounds

IT WAS another Saturday of frustration for Brechin City when they saw yet another game postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, writes Sarah McLean.

And the disappointment also affected Forfar Athletic who were hoping that a win in the Angus Derby would give them the boost they needed to safeguard their place in the top four.

The postponed fixture will now take place on Tuesday, April 9, with a 7.45 p.m. kick off.

But Arbroath, still in fifth, are now closer on the Loons heels as they sit on equal points with 38 although Forfar Athletic have a game in hand.

They were the only Angus team to record a win on Saturday when they took away a 1-0 win from East Fife.

But even then they left it late as Graham Bayne scored the only goal in the 85th minute.

On Tuesday evening, Brechin were looking to try and get through some of the many games they now have backed up to the end of the season when they host Albion Rovers at Glebe Park.

On Saturday, the Glebe Park men are away to Alloa Athletic, Arbroath are at home to league leaders Queen of the South and Forfar are at home to Stenhousemuir.

There is yet more mid-week action for Brechin next Tuesday when they host Stranraer.

In the Third Division Montrose had an afternoon to forget when they went down 4-0 to Berwick Rangers away.

The result came as a shock after the recent performances put in by Stuart Garden’s side but after going down 1-0 before the break it all “went to pot” in the second half when they lost another three goals.

This Saturday, Montrose will host Peterhead at Links Park in the hopes of regaining their previous form and extending the gap between themselves and Berwick Rangers who jumped into fourth on the back of their 4-0 win.
