Elgin City 0-0 Annan Athletic

Elgin City moved off the bottom of the League Two table but squandered a chance to defeat Annan Athletic after Craig Gunn missed a first-half penalty.

Brian Cameron also missed an early chance for the home side, while Jamie Duff pulled an effort wide.

When Peter Watson was penalised for a handball in his own area, Gunn's spot kick was palmed away by Alex Mitchell.

Both sides had second-half chances and Elgin's Mark Nicolson struck the bar from close range.

Elgin are now level on points with East Stirlingshire but rise off the bottom on goal difference.
