Buckie responded to City’s chance by breaking the deadlock in the 34th minute when Morrison headed home a MacAskill corner from six yards to give his side a deserved half-time lead.

City boss Andy Kirk withdrew Rory Currie as he handed a debut to Dominican internatio­nal striker Julian Wade, who signed before the game, for the second half.

The home side were back on level terms within six minutes of the restart as Bollan rose highest to head home Paton’s corner.

Wade’s arrival coincided with Brechin’s best spell of the game and they peppered Main’s goal with shots as they searched for a second.

The 31-year-old came close to a debut goal in the 66th minute when he fired in a low curling shot from the edge of the box which went just past the post.

Jags withstood the pressure from the home side before coming back into the game and Wills did well to save a Mark McLaughlan strike as Buckie sought to restore their advantage.

Jamie Bain then did well to deny substitute Callum Murray a tap-in when he cut out Kevin Fraser’s cross.

But Buckie’s late pressure paid off as they regained the lead 15 minutes from time through Urquhart after Wills had failed to hold MacAskill’s shot.

Jags were reduced to 10 men with eight minutes remaining when Morrison was shown a straight red card after he fouled Wade when the Brechin striker was clean through on goal.

Buckie would not be denied their win, however, and Murray ensured victory in injury time when he blocked Wills’ attempted clearance before scrambling the loose ball over the line.
