Annan moved up to third in League Two after scoring two late goals to come from behind and beat 10-man Elgin.

The visitors deservedly took the lead when Shane Sutherland headed beyond Annan goalkeeper Kenny Arthur.

Jim Chapman's men broke Elgin hearts when Kenny MacKay popped up to claim a valuable three points for the hosts.
