Elgin City 2-0 Albion Rovers

Albion Rovers missed the chance to go top of Scottish League Two after losing to Elgin City.

With Arbroath's game postponed, Rovers could have gone first but fell behind when Dennis Wyness turned in Archie MacPhee's cross.

Elgin goalkeeper Ross Laidlaw denied Scott Chaplain before MacPhee missed a penalty following Neil Parry's foul on Craig Gunn.

Shane Sutherland doubled Elgin's lead in stoppage time, slotting past Parry.
