Match Preview

Weir aims to break derby duck Brechin manager Jim Weir has ruled out injured pair Gerry McLachlan and Charlie King as he looks to secure his first ever Angus derby success over Forfar. City welcome back Gary Fusco after work commitments however they have seen on-loan Scott Smith return to Hibs, although Easter Road team-mate David Crawford could return to Glebe Park on another temporary deal if a new agreement can be arranged in time for kick-off. Weir said: "I have yet to win a derby as manager of Brechin and it would be great to put that right against Forfar and keep our recent run of good results going but I know how tough it will be. "Forfar will be desperate to start climbing the table." Forfar are hopeful of securing goalkeeper Marc McCallum and midfielder Dale Hilson on loan from Dundee United ahead of the short trip to Glebe Park as they look for their first win in 10 games. On-loan Aberdeen goalkeeper Jamie Langfield has returned to Pittodrie and midfielder Chris Hegarty misses out due to suspension to reduce manager Dick Campbell's options Campbell said: "We really need to stop losing bad goals as we cannot fall much further in the table. I do however remain confident that we have the potential here to turn things around by going on a run of wins. "We won at Brechin earlier in the season and a repeat of that success would be an excellent start to 2012."

Match Report

McManus at the double Paul McManus' second-half brace helped Brechin come from behind to beat Forfar 2-1. Christopher Templeman netted six minutes before half-time to give the visitors the lead at the break, but McManus turned the game on its head with his eighth and ninth goals of the season. Forfar, now without a win in 10 league games, led after Templeman headed in Ross Campbell's cross. But the hosts responded six minutes after the interval when McManus kept his cool to slot home from 12 yards. And the striker doubled his tally, firing in from the edge of the box just eight minutes later. James Lister nearly extended Brechin's advantage but his effort came back off a post and the striker came close again before the end, forcing a smart save out of Forfar keeper Greg Paterson.
