Montrose 2-3 Elgin City

Scottish League Two bottom club Elgin City won in the division for the first time since August against Montrose.

Dennis Wyness scored from a Brian Cameron free-kick to give Elgin the lead and a Ross Graham own goal doubled their advantage.

Garry Wood halved Montrose's deficit early in the second half.

Craig Gunn got the visitors' third with low shot and Ross McCord's free-kick for the home team proved only to be consolation.
