Brechin boss Darren Dods remains upbeat despite losing streak and selection woes

Brechin boss Darren Dods is looking on the positive side despite City having lost four games on the bounce.

They welcome managerless East Fife to Glebe Park today and are still looking for their first win since the victory up at Peterhead on November 5.

There was, however, improvement in the display as  Brechin went down 2-1 at home to Albion Rovers in midweek and that’s why Dods can afford to be optimistic going into today’s clash with the Fifers.

“We have been pretty flat but on Tuesday we did well for a lot of the game,” said Dods.

“We played some good stuff but, sadly, missed chances.

“Also, Albion Rovers hit us on the break – they are good at that – when we were putting pressure on them.

“Now we need to get back to winning ways, starting against East Fife.

“They might not have a manager but that doesn’t mean their players won’t be well prepared and determined to make it tough for us.”

As has been the case for a while now, City have plenty of selection woes.

Paul McLean, Chris O’Neill and James Dale are sidelined, while Gary Fusco has a wedding to attend.

Andy Jackson is a major doubt, having picked up a fresh injury, with Dods saying: “It is so unfortunate that he has now hurt his other foot and we will just have to deal with it.”

On the plus side, Dougie Hill is back available and will go straight into the side.
