East Stirlingshire 1-0 Elgin City

David McKenna's late penalty earned Scottish League Two bottom side East Stirlingshire a narrow win over bottom side Elgin City.

Shire goalkeeper Richard Barnard was alert to parry away Craig Thomson's effort midway through the first half.

Elgin's Chris Townsley headed over before midfielder Neil McCabe's dipping 25-yard volley narrowly missed the target at the other end.

Substitute Brian Cameron was penalised for handball and McKenna converted.
