Match Preview | Brechin City v Huntly
City are back at Glebe Park for the first time in over a month tomorrow evening as we host Huntly in a Highland League fixture (8pm kick off).
Andy Kirk's men will be aiming to continue their impressive winning run against a Huntly side who, following a poor start to the season, have won their last two league fixtures against Lossiemouth and Strathspey Thistle.
City are likely to be without midfielder Michael McArthur, however Manager Andy Kirk should have the rest of his squad available for selection.
Reflecting on another important victory against Inverurie Locos at the weekend, Manager Andy Kirk commented, "The main objective is to get three points on the board every week so I’m very pleased with the victory. I thought we were decent enough in the first half but in the second half we didn’t really manage to get into a style or rhythm that we normally do.
“That was maybe down to a bit of a hangover from last week’s game at Inverness Caley where we put a lot of effort and energy into that match and where we had to work harder than perhaps we normally do to keep up with a top Championship team.
“We also had a few wee niggles so maybe the second-half performance was a consequence of that but again the lads dug in and gave everything they had so I’m really delighted with that. Last time we were up here we got bullied but there was never going to be a repeat of that with the group of players we have now. The. players stood up well and fought their corner.
“If I have a disappointment it’s perhaps over the number of chances we missed in the first half and if we’d been more clinical in front of goal, we could have gone in at the interval 3-0 up and the game’s done at that point. When you’re only 1-0 up you leave yourselves open to conceding something but we ground out the closing stages well and were worth our victory."
Admission prices are £10 for adults and £7 for concessions. Season tickets will be valid.
