East Fife 1-3 Brechin City

Brechin City beat East Fife to leapfrog their rivals in League One.

City hit the front on the half-hour mark when Andy Jackson fired home his eighth of the campaign.

Bobby Barr's low drive gave Brechin hope in the 54th minute, but Ryan Stewart replied with a glancing header on 70 minutes.

Derek Carcary's left-footed strike a minute from time settled the contest and gave Brechin their second win of the season over East Fife.
