Dundee last faced Brechin in a competitive fixture in the second round of the Co-operative Insurance Cup at Glebe Park in August 2010. Paul McLean was sent off just before the hour but then two quick goals from Rory McAllister gave City a 2-0 lead.
Leigh Griffiths got Dundee back on level terms with a brace but then missed a penalty with the last kick of the ball so that the game went to extra time.
There were no further goals but Craig Forsyth was sent off in 120 minutes before the match went to penalties.
Gary Harkins scored Dundee’s first penalty but misses from Eric Paton, Stephen O’Donnell and Nicky Riley completed a miserable night for Gordon Chisholm’s men with Brechin winning the shoot out 3-1.
