Elgin City 3-2 Annan Athletic

Second-place Elgin City won to move to within three points of Scottish League Two leaders Annan Athletic.

Darryl McHardy's strike put Elgin ahead but the same player scored an own goal from an Annan corner to level matters.

Brian Cameron latched on to Dylan Easton's inswinging cross to fire the hosts in front again before the break.

Craig Gunn converted a penalty after Peter Watson had fouled Easton and Matt Flynn's late drive gave the visitors a consolation.
