Arbroath 1-0 Elgin City

Simon Murray scored the only goal of the game as Arbroath made it six wins from seven with victory over Elgin.

The home side dominated most of the match, Murray, Dylan Carreiro and Robert Linn all coming close early on.

Archie MacPhee had the best chance of the half for the visitors but Craig Johnstone did well to block the shot.

The Smokies also dominated the second half and finally broke through in the 76th minute, Murray beating Michael Fraser for his third of the campaign.
