Managers at odds over fairness of 3-3 derby result

Forfar Athletic boss Dick Campbell said he wasn’t disappointed to share the points following the 3-3 derby draw, writes Scott Binnie.

The Loons were 2-0 behind after a poor start to the game and could have been even further behind when Omar Kader grabbed his second of the season shortly before the break.

Dick said: “Brechin played really well, first half I thought Brechin were better than us.

“I got in about them at half time, we scored right before half time which made it a lively game.

“We scored a great goal for the second, and we scored an equally brilliant one for the third. It’s a bad goal their third as far as I’m concerned.

“I thought 3-3 was a fair result, I’m not that disappointed to be honest. I don’t think we did enough in the first half.”

Campbell’s Brechin counterpart Ray McKinnon believed his side should have won the game.

He said: “We were disappointed to let Forfar back into the game at 2-0 up.

“But it was a great game. On the balance of play, chances-wise, we’re feeling a bit disappointed not to have won the game. But we’ll take lots of positives out of that, people like Alan Trouten have come back in, that’s his first 30 minutes in the last seven weeks.”

A bumper crowd of 741 took in the extremely entertaining derby at Glebe Park.
