Montrose 2-1 Elgin City

Elgin City missed the chance to move into the Scottish League Two promotion play-off zone after losing to bottom side Montrose.

Montrose went ahead when Jordan Allan tucked in after the visitors had failed to deal with Scott Johnston's corner.

However, the visitors were level by half-time. Daniel Moore's delivery picked out Darryl McHardy, who notched his fourth goal of the season.

Graham Webster stroked home Montrose's winner midway through the second half.
