Brechin City manager Darren Dods won’t let his players feel sorry for themselves as they head to the Highlands in search of their first league win.
The Glebe Park side go into tonight’s clash with Inverness Caledonian Thistle on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Falkirk, which was made worse by two red cards.
Sean Crighton and Paul McLean will be missing for the already relegated part-timers but Dods is determined that his team will put in a good performance in their absence.
He said: “It was shaping up as a tough week anyway as we were away to Falkirk, up at Inverness and then have St Mirren to face this Saturday.
“It will obviously be harder now as we are without two more players after their red cards.
“Long midweek trips are difficult for part-time teams in a full-time league but we will look to go out with a bang and end our season on a high, starting at Inverness.”
Dods added: “We know what our fate is but it is important to try and end our season well.
“We knew that this season would be challenging, and it has actually been more challenging than we had thought, however we can play without any pressure.”
As well as having Crighton and McLean banned, Dods is without the injured Ryan McGeever, Craig Storie and Andy Jackson. The good news is Euan Spark returns from suspension.
