Scottish League Two: Elgin City 4-1 Arbroath

Elgin City secured second spot and their promotion play-off place in Scottish League Two with a comprehensive win over Arbroath.

Kyle MacLeod headed home and Brian Cameron converted a penalty to double Elgin's advantage after 32 minutes after he was fouled by Andy Munro.

Cameron headed in a second before Josh Skelly pulled a goal back late on.

But Craig Gunn scored the goal of the game in injury time with a precise finish into the top corner.

While Arbroath finish ninth, Elgin go on to face third-top Clyde in their play-off semi-final after both sides leapfrogged Queen's Park on the final day.
