Following the departure of Manager Andy Kirk earlier in the week, City will be guided by Stephen Simmons for the Breedon Highland League fixture against Clachnacuddin tomorrow afternoon.
Despite the change, the players are focussed fully on continuing their unbeaten start to the league season, coming off the back of a 4-0 win over Deveronvale last weekend.
Visiting the Carnegie Fuels Stadium at Glebe Park tomorrow is a Clachnacuddin side that have endured a difficult start to the season. They are without a win from their opening 12 matches and currently sit second-bottom of the Highland League.
In what proved to be his last post-match interview for the Club last weekend, Andy Kirk commented, "I was very pleased with the performance and result. I thought there were some excellent bits of play and we controlled the game for large parts. We were a bit wasteful if I was being a bit picky but their keeper made a couple of brilliant saves in the second half. We moved the ball well and the players' shape and attitude was good.
"Grady is capable of coming up with moments like that, that's the quality that he's got and it was an unbelievable finish.
We've put Grady on corners and we've changed up a couple of things and we looked dangerous from set pieces. There's a bit of freedom for the players there as well and we took advantage of that."
"It's a 4 goal win away from home and a clean sheet and overall it was a decent performance."
City will continue to be without Anthony McDonald and Kevin McHattie for tomorrow's fixture.
Tomorrow's match kicks off at 3pm. Admission prices are £10 for adults and £7 for concessions (Over 65's, 16/17 year olds and students). Season tickets are valid. Digital tickets should be purchased at the following link - PURCHASE TICKETS

Clachnacuddin 1-2 Brechin City - 15th April 2023
City inched closer to the Highland League title with a hard-fought victory against the Lilywhites in April. An early header from James Anderson put the home side ahead but Botti Biabi restored parity 10 minutes later. Two minutes after coming on as a half time substitute, Anthony McDonald scored what proved to be the winner with a fantastic strike from the edge of the box.
