Elgin City 1-2 Stranraer

Second-placed Stranraer came from behind to beat fourth-top Elgin City in Division Three.

Martin Grehan came closest to breaking the deadlock in a goalless first half but saw his 32nd-minute header bounce back off the crossbar.

Archibald Macphee fired Elgin into the lead in the 58th minute.

His spot-kick was parried by Stranraer goalkeeper David Mitchell, but he pounced quickest to lash the rebound into the roof of the net.

Stranraer levelled nine minutes later through Michael Moore.

The half-time substitute collected Sean Winter's left-wing cross and fired past Alexander Clark to make it 1-1.

Stephen Stirling won the game for his side in the 74th minute, receiving David McGregor's cross to fire in low from 12 yards.
