Albion Rovers 0-3 Elgin City

Mid-table Elgin cruised to a coupon-busting win at Scottish League Two leaders Albion Rovers thanks to an inspired performance from Jamie Reid.

Darryl McHardy headed them into the lead, and the lead was doubled through Jamie Reid.

Albion had nothing by way of a response and Elgin made the game safe with Reid's second as his scrappy effort found its way into the net.

The defeat ended the leaders' five-game winning streak.
