Scottish Football League

Michael Moore scored twice as Stranraer came from behind to beat Elgin and keep up the pressure at the top of the Scottish Third Division.

Craig Malcolm put Stranraer ahead from close range before the break but their lead lasted just eight minutes as Nicolson volleyed in from the edge of the box.

Alexander Clark brought down Stephen Stirling in the 53rd minute, with Stirling stepping up to covert the penalty.

The game turned in the 68th minute when Scott Taggart's drilled effort found the net from 18 yards.

Three minutes later Moore got into the six-yard box to head home Nathan Shepherd's corner for his eighth goal of the season.
