Jackson on the mark
Andrew Jackson's 16th-minute strike earned Brechin a 1-0 home win over Albion Rovers in a closely-contested Irn-Bru Scottish League Second Division encounter.
Jackson latched onto Jonathan Stewart's cross to drive a right-footed shot into the bottom left-hand corner from 12 yards.
David McKenna went close to adding a second for the home side in the 58th minute when his close-range effort was fumbled by Albion goalkeeper Chris McCluskey, but the visitors managed to scramble the ball away to safety.
Then just after the hour mark Jonathan Brown's free-kick from 20 yards flew narrowly over the Albion crossbar.
Albion struggled to create clear-cut chances. The closest they came was from the left foot of Gary Phillips, who was twice just off target with free-kicks from outside the penalty area.
