Match Preview | Turriff United v Brechin City
City head to the Haughs in Turriff tomorrow afternoon looking to make it nine consecutive wins in the Highland League.
Interim Manager Stephen Simmons and his side are acutely aware that this will be no easy task against a Turriff side who continue to improve year on year - only the top 3 in Fortmartine, City & Buckie Thistle have won more Highland League matches than Turriff so far this season.
City will be looking to continue where they left off as an impressive attacking performance saw them put 6 past Clachnacuddin without reply last Saturday. Meanwhile Turriff moved up to 7th in the table following a 3-1 win over Rothes.
City will continue to be without the services of Anthony McDonald and Kevin McHattie through injury.
INTERIM MANAGERS COMMENTS
Reflecting on the 6-0 victory over Clachnacuddin last weekend, Interim Manager Stephen Simmons commented, "I thought the boys were great and if I was to be a bit greedier I'd have wanted more goals as we missed a lot of chances.
"I said at half time to keep it going and to be fair they done that. I thought Clach's keeper was great and some of the saves he was pulling off was unbelievable. We scored some great goals and with a 6-0 win we were very happy.
"The players have just got on with it over the past week - we had two good training sessions and they have all worked hard and gave me everything. I knew they would as they always do.
Tomorrow's match kicks off at 3pm. Admission prices at the Haughs are £10 for adults and £5 for concessions (additional £2 for seat in stand). The Supporters' Bar at the ground is open from 1pm.
Brechin City Supporters' Club are running a coach to the game which will leave St Ninians Square at 11:30am. The bus is now fully booked - thank you for your support!
Tomorrow's match referee is Joel Kennedy, assisted by Andy Ewen and Kevin Whyte.
Brechin City 4-0 Turriff United - 01 April 2023
A brace each from Grady McGrath and Anthony McDonald helped City to victory against Turra towards the end of last season. After McGrath gave City an early lead after just two minutes, the visitors made things difficult for City who took until the 62nd minute to double the advantage through McDonald. The pair added further goals in the closing stages to give the scoreline a more comfortable look.
