Elgin City 3-5 East Fife

Four goals from Nathan Austin helped East Fife to a win against Elgin in an enthralling Scottish League Two game.

The striker's first, in 25 minutes, came after keeper Ross Laidlaw parried Sean Dickson's shot into his path.

Trialist Derek Riordan set up Austin's next two goals, a volley and a header, before Craig Gunn scored for Elgin.

A Riordan free-kick hit the net and, though Brian Cameron pulled one back for Elgin, Austin slammed in his fourth before Daniel Moore's fine free-kick.
