Queen's Park 2-0 Elgin City

Bottom-side Queen's Park claimed only their third Scottish League Two win of the season against Elgin City.

Paul Gallacher capitalised on poor Elgin defending to fire the Spiders ahead early on.

Mark Nicholson and Shane Sutherland came close to levelling for the visitors.

But Joao Pereira Vitoria's stoppage-time strike from Lee Davidson's pass gave the hosts a more comfortable advantage.
