Elgin City 4-2 East Fife

Two second-half goals proved enough for Elgin to claim three points against East Fife at Borough Briggs.

Brian Cameron netted after 30 seconds by finding the bottom corner before Craig Gunn's 12th league goal of the season just three minutes later.

Kyle Wilkie pulled one back and Nathan Austin levelled from six yards.

Darryl McHardy finished emphatically from close-range to put Elgin ahead with Daniel Moore then scoring a free-kick in stoppage time.
