Clydebank allowed a two goal lead to slip against Brechin at Kilbowie Park meaning the Bankies blew the chance to go sixth in the league table.
Brechin were almost in front in the first minute when Tocher crashed a free kick against the post.
Moore made an opening for King at the other end, but Ritchie scooped up the low shot.
In 16 minutes Clydebank went in front. King hammered in a low shot from yards. Ritchie got his hand to the hot, but the ball rolled slowly over the line.
The home side were very much on top now, and Rutherford had Ritchie beaten again, but his drive hit the crossbar.
A shot by Caskie was pushed round the post by the keeper. Then Smith kicked clear on the line in a goalmouth scramble from the resultant corner kick.
In a Brechin raid Cooper headed a cross from O'Donnell narrowly over and a free kick from Dunn was pushed over by Madden. Another shot from Dunn just missed as Brechin fought for the equaliser .
Just before the interval, Ritchie pushed a Moy header over the bar.
A let off for Brechin when play resumed. Ritchie failed to punch clear a cross from the right. Caskie sent the ball into goal and Smith cleared almost on the line. The left back was injured in the process but recovered.
Hay had a chance to score but he shot over from a good position. Brechin were now under pressure. Twice Smith blocked scoring shots and Rutherford fired high after outstripping City's defence.
In a Brechin foray Garland skimmed the bar and later Tocher up for a corner kick hooked the ball over the bar.
When Clydebank returned Fleming struck the bar with a header. The second goal was just delayed by two minutes as King scored with a stunning 30 yard free kick.
Clydebank looked home and dry, but Brechin pulled one back in the 73rd minute when Garland side stepped Mitchell and shot a great goal.
Brechin were back in the game, and Clydebank's defensive frailties came to the fore when Dunn netted a deserved equaliser with just three minutes remaining
