Elgin City 1-1 Arbroath

Craig Gunn grabbed a crucial leveller as rock-bottom Elgin City earned a draw against League Two leaders Arbroath.

The visitors edged ahead in the first half when Simon Murray notched his sixth goal in three games, after being set up by Adam Hunter.

City almost squared it immediately but Graeme Beveridge's drive crashed back off the bar.

They were not to be denied, however, as Brian Cameron set up Gunn and he blasted a shot high into the net.

The result was Elgin's second draw on the spin.
