East Stirlingshire 1-4 Elgin City

Elgin City soared to the top of the Scottish Third Division after recording an impressive win at bottom-side East Stirlingshire.

Brian Cameron opened the scoring for the visitors in the seventh minute as he rifled home a left-footed drive past goalkeeper Ryan McWilliams.

Craig Gunn added City's second from close range and team-mate Ross O'Donoghue hit a sweet strike past McWilliams for number three, six minutes before the interval.

Kevin Turner hit the crossbar for the hosts, but Dennis Wyness made no mistake at the other end with a fourth for the Black and Whites in the 59th minute.

Turner did pull one back for Shire a minute later and also came close for a second, hitting the woodwork again late on.
