East Fife replaced Elgin City at the Scottish League Two summit following victory at Borough Briggs.

The visitors took a sixth-minute lead when Nathan Austin latched on to Gary Naysmith's through ball to slot low past Elgin goalkeeper Mark Hurst.

Dylan Easton followed-up Craig Gunn's header to level for the hosts.

Austin rounded Hurst two minutes later to tap into an empty net and Kevin Smith deflected Scott Mercer's driven shot home in the 76th minute.
