Elgin City 1-1 Montrose

Elgin City slipped three points behind Scottish League Two leaders East Fife after drawing with Montrose.

Craig Gunn's 20th league goal of the season put the hosts ahead, the forward finishing from Connor McLaren's pass.

The Borough Briggs side dominated the rest of the half but found themselves level again after the break when Ross Campbell struck for the visitors.

Darryl McHardy had a late chance to win it for City but it was saved by goalkeeper Jordan Millar.
