Montrose 2-0 Elgin City

Graham Webster and Gary Fraser were once again on the scoresheet as Montrose earned a win over Elgin City to move level with their opponents on nine points in the League Two table.

Webster headed home Ross McCord's pass to put Montrose ahead.

Gavin Malin came close to doubling Montrose's lead just before the break, but the hosts would not be denied a second goal with Fraser netting.

And 21-year-old Fraser got on the end of the McCord's pass to fire in.

Elgin, who started the day level on points with East Fife at the top of the standings, could find no way back after that as Montrose picked up their third win.
