Elgin City 0-4 Albion Rovers

Elgin City will be sick of the sight of Scott Chaplain after his double helped Albion Rovers ease to victory to move into second place in League Two.

Chaplain had scored three goals in the last two meetings between the teams before heading home Alan Reid's cross.

Mick Dunlop's deflected right-footed strike made it two after 10 minutes.

Chaplain dispossessed Matthew Cooper and raced clear to slot home another with barely half an hour played and Gary Phillips added a fine volley.

Craig Gunn had hit the bar for Elgin in the early stages of the second half before Phillips ended any faint hopes of a comeback by the side sitting bottom of the table.
