City head into what can only be described as a real 'six pointer' as we welcome league leaders Fraserburgh for a hugely important Highland League clash at Glebe Park tomorrow afternoon (3pm kick off).
At time of writing, the surface at Glebe Park is in excellent condition and despite all but two Highland League fixtures falling victim to Covid-19 isolation, both sides have a sufficient number of players available to fulfil the fixture as it stands.
A win for City would see them pull level on points with Fraserburgh at the top of the table, albeit the 'Broch' would still top the division on goal difference.
City will continue to be without top-scorer Marc Scott who is recovering from an ankle injury sustained against Deveronvale a fortnight ago. Owing to self-isolation, Manager Andy Kirk will be without a couple of unnamed players for the match.
Reflecting on the win over Deveronvale last time out, Manager Andy Kirk said, "We were in complete control from start to finish and there were a lot of positives to take from the game."
Max Kucheriavyi put in a man of the match performance with 2 goals and an assist. Andy commented, "We've been telling him to do that more often (on the first goal) because he can strike the ball with real pace.
"For the free kick, the accuracy to get it up and down and into the corner with enough pace gave the keeper no chance. That's what he's capable of and he's done it a number of times this season."
City are on a run of 7 consecutive league wins which includes 5 clean sheets. Andy added, "Keeping clean sheets give us the base to go and win the game. We've looked solid at the back - we've defended well. All in all from front to back we've limited the opposition to very few chances and that is something that we are pleased with along with the creative play going forward."
A reminder that due to being limited to 500 spectators, tomorrow's match will be HOME FANS ONLY

Fraserbugh 1-0 Brechin City - 21 August 2021
A first half own-goal from Michael Paton proved to be the difference between the sides at Bellslea back in August. A City side missing a number of players due to injury and isolation battled hard but came up just short on the day against the league leaders.
