Wednesday, 25th Jul 2018

Betfred Cup: Wednesday 25th July 2018, kick off 7.45pm at Glebe Park, Brechin.

Dunfermline and Brechin may not have met in this League Cup competition for sixty years but they do know each other extremely well having met seventeen times in the last five years.

After seventeen consecutive defeats at the end of last season and no wins for the entire league season, a draw and a win in the Betfred Cup must come as a welcome change of fortune for Brechin City.

With six points from the first two group matches Allan Johnston’s new look team seems to be shaping up and they will approach this tie with confidence but with due respect for a side that might be tougher opponents than before.

The Pars have lost only one of their last 13 competitive matches - that play off at Tannadice.

Brechin City 0 Dunfermline 3


Dunfermline went ahead in the 8th minute. Declan McManus was first to a long clearance from Lee Robinson, then quickest to react to his initial touch, sending Nicky CLARK into the box in the inside right channel – his strike partner drilled his shot beyond Graeme Smith into the far corner to open the scoring.

Within a minute the lead was doubled – Euan Spark struggled to deal with an incoming ball and CLARK outmuscled Gary Fusco to create a chance for a shot which he slotted past Smith from 12 yards. 0-2

Early in the second half Tom Beadling found both control and space and chipped the ball to CLARK who this time was in the left channel. In a mirror image of the first goal he dispatched the ball beyond Smith to complete his hat-trick in 54th minute.
