Trouten about for Brechin
Alan Trouten's goal before the break gave Brechin a 1b0 win over Stenhousemuir at Glebe Park.
Martin Grehan's penalty miss denied the visitors the chance of a point in the second match of the Scottish League One season.
The hosts scored the only goal of the game in the 43rd minute. Craig Molloy's free-kick made its way to Trouten in the box, who fired high into the net from 10 yards. It came just minutes after he sent a similar opportunity flying over the bar for City.
The Warriors had excellent second-half chances to go ahead, through Ryan Millar and Grehan, but both failed to hit the target.
With 12 minutes left on the clock Paul McLean fouled Colin McMenamin in the box but Grehan's penalty was saved well by Graeme Smith to help preserve his side's lead.
