Elgin City 2-3 Annan Athletic

Elgin City's late fight-back was not enough to deny Annan all three points.

Three first-half goals in the space of 10 minutes from did all the damage for the visitors at Borough Briggs.

Alistair Love opened the scoring, but setting up Steven Swinglehurst and Blair Henderson to make it 3-0.

Shane Sutherland pulled one back from Elgin on the hour-mark, and Paul Harkins doubled the home side's tally in injury time giving them hope of an equaliser, but it proved too little.
