Brechin – Dunfermline Prediction & Picks (20.03.2018)


Brechin – Dunfermline FREE PICKS

An interesting match from a competitive point of view will take place late in the evening in Brechin, Scotland. Because there receives climber Brechin City the guests of Dunfermline. The home side did not win a league match this season! And the season is slowly coming to an end. Already in the next week, the immediate descent could be determined. The guests from Dunfermline, however, have not lost sight of the rise playoffs yet.

Brechin City:

In the last season, the joy in Brechin City’s camp knew no bounds. As fourth of the League One just as qualified for the promotion playoffs, Brechin City was able to prevail against two competitors in the episode and celebrate the promotion to Division 1. In both legends Brechin City celebrated the victory on penalties. It should remain until today, a good ten months later, the pretty last sense of achievement. For in Division 1 Brechin City is completely overwhelmed and no chance. Brechin City lost 23 (!) Out of 27 league games. Four times, the climber could get a point, there was not a victory. With four points, Brechin City is second last and only the backlog of league rival Dumbarton, who stands on the penultimate, the relegation relegation place, is 23 points. Should Brechin City lose on Tuesday and in the next game on Friday, then the direct descent would also be purely mathematical.

Either way, Brechin City will never be able to catch up. The only four draws brought Brechin City home, but this should not give much encouragement in otherwise ten home defeats. With the games in the so-called Betfred Cup, the Challenge Cup and the FA Cup Brechin City has played a total of 34 competitive matches this season. Brechin City has lost 28 of those games. There were only two wins in the Betfred Cup against the even lower-caliber Forfar – and also on penalties – and in the FA Cup against the amateurs of Buckie Thistle. The 3-2 victory was scarce and with the winning goal four minutes before the end also a little happy.


Dunfermline is something of the pioneer for Brechin City in terms of promotion. For one year before the upcoming opponent rose to Division 1, Dunfermline had also made it. The only difference: Dunfermline was able to hold the class sovereign in the preseason with a fifth place out of ten and narrowly scrapped in the end just past the promotion playoffs. Dunfermline is currently ranked fifth and is four points behind Morton in fourth, which still entitles to the promotion uplift. But: Dunfermline has completed a game less than Morton. At the weekend, the two clashed in a direct duel and parted in Dunfermline scoreless. Overall, Dunfermline’s record is balanced by ten wins and nine draws and defeats. The goal difference is positive at 40:30.

Away, the balance is not satisfactory. Of fourteen away games, Dunfermline has only won three. Dunfermline struck five times in a foreign country, six games were lost. From his last four games on the opponent’s place Dunfermline could win none. But: Three of these last four away games took place in the front-ranked teams, one to four, the remainder at Queen of South, currently one point behind Dunfermline. In the current season Dunfermline could win both previous comparisons with Brechin City. Away Dunfermline won the first duel 3-0, at home the result was 2-1 then a bit narrower. If you add the games from League One, where both played together two years ago, then Dunfermline has won the last seven direct clashes.
