Elgin City 4-1 Berwick Rangers

Elgin City moved top of Scottish League Two with victory over visitors Berwick Rangers.

Connor McLaren's header put Elgin ahead but a stunning 35-yard strike by Ewan McNeil levelled matters.

An own goal by Ross Drummond restored Elgin's lead and Craig Gunn added their third with a low strike.

Mark Nicolson's finish into the top corner following Thomas Reilly's through ball rounded off a good day's work for the hosts.
