Two minutes later Alex Harris got the home side’s third to complete the scoring.

Elgin moved up to fourth with a 3-1 victory against Stirling Albion, with Smart Osadolor giving the home side the lead after 21 minutes.

David Wilson equalised six minutes later but Kane Hester and an Archie MacPhee penalty had the home side well in control before the break and they went on to claim all three points.
