Elgin City 2-1 Berwick Rangers

Two goals from Shane Sutherland proved enough to give Elgin City a home victory over Berwick Rangers in Scottish League Two.

Sutherland's early strike separated the two sides at the break.

Elgin conceded a penalty when Jamie Duff handled in the box and Paul Willis converted from 12 yards.

But Sutherland headed home Dennis Wyness's cross to give the hosts the win that takes them level on points with sixth-place Berwick.
