McKenzie seals comeback win
Rory McKenzie's late strike snatched Brechin all three points as they twice came from behind to beat Stirling 3-2.
The hosts took the lead just after the half hour mark when Gary Thom's cross found Mark Ferry and he finished from close range.
Ferry found himself on the opposite scoresheet minutes after the restart when he inadvertently put Bryan Hodge's corner past his own keeper.
But Paul McLean spared his blushes after 75 minutes when he turned the ball into his own net after good work by Alan Cook.
The visitors drew level seven minutes from time as Hodge's fine 30-yard drive left Callum Reidford helpless.
The Hedgemen snatched victory four minutes later when McKenzie collected Hodge's pass inside the area and slammed home.
Stirling are now without a win in seven outings but victory boosts Brechin's play-off ambitions after back-to-back draws.
