Match Preview | Brechin City v Fort William - By Steven Mew

After suffering consecutive league defeats for the first time this season, City will be looking to bounce back against a much-changed Fort William side at Glebe Park tomorrow afternoon.

Although the Fort are currently without a win from 16 matches so far this season, City will come up against something of an unknown quantity with the squad undergoing major changes over the last month under new Manager Shadab Iftikhar.

City will welcome back skipper Iain Davidson back from suspension, but will still be without playmaker Max Kucheriavyi who serves the second of his 2 match ban. Marc Scott is close to making a return from an ankle and may be named amongst the matchday squad but David Cox is unlikely to feature after missing last weeks match through Covid.

Looking back at last weekends defeat against Formartine, Manager Andy Kirk said, "It was disappointing. On reflection when you watch the game back we had some good spells and had more of the play in general, but we didn't create a lot of chances which we normally do. It was a sloppy goal to concede and it feels worse because we're coming off the back of the defeat against Fraserburgh too.

"We were missing some big players and it does have an effect, however we still had a good enough team on the pitch to win the game. We just didn't do enough in the attacking third to cause them problems. Once Formartine got themselves in front it gave them something to hold on to and they defended well."

Looking ahead to a first ever competitive fixture against Fort William tomorrow, Andy commented, "We'll be up against an unknown team - we haven't played them yet this season then you add in the fact they have a new Manager and they've signed some new players. However it's about what we do and this is what we stress to the players. We need to get back on track by playing the way we had been and creating plenty of chances."

Both home and away supporters can pay at the gate, with admission prices set at £10 for adults and £7 for concessions. Supporters are also encouraged to take a lateral flow test before attending.

The City Club bar will be open to both home and away supporters from 2pm and again following game. Supporters are asked to adhere to the guidelines in place.

The match referee is Liam Duncan, assisted by Stuart Stevenson and Lewis Burns.
