Brechin City manager Darren Dods had mixed feelings after his side’s 2-2 draw with Stenhousemuir at Ochilview.
The City boss was delighted his team moved off the bottom spot for the first time this season but disappointed to only take a point from a game he reckoned they could have won.
“We started a bit slowly and Stenhousemuir pushed us back a bit in the opening period, but we then won a penalty which unfortunately we missed,” he said.
“Stenny then got the opening goal to go 1-0 up at the break, but the boys fought back really well in the second-half, and we then scored two goals in quick succession.”
“We really at that point should have been able to see the game out to pick up our third win in succession, but unfortunately we switched off at a corner in the final minute which led to Stenny scoring the equaliser.
“It’s frustrating, because a victory would have edged us that bit closer to the teams in the middle of the table, but we’ll continue to work really hard and try to take as many points as we can in the coming quarter.”
City won a penalty in the 19th minute after Robert Thomson was brought down in the box by Warriors keeper Jamie Barclay.
Willie Dyer struck his spot-kick too directly, and Barclay was able to parry the ball.
The save gave the hosts a lift and they scored the opening goal in the 33rd minute when Alan Cook drifted in on the blind side of the City defence to volley a Mark Gilhaney cross past Graeme Smith in the City goal.
The visitors fought back well after the break and got reward with two goals in three minutes to grab the lead.
Andy Jackson grabbed the leveller in the 71st minute when he slotted the ball home from close-range, and a great strike from substitute David Weatherston three minutes later gave City the advantage.
Slack defending in the final minute let the Warriors level the match when Carlos Mazana-Madtinez hit a terrific drive from the edge of the box.
