Elgin City 3-1 Berwick

Elgin City continued to put pressure on leaders Rangers by beating Berwick at Borough Briggs.

Midfielder Mark Nicolson struck a right-footed shot from 25 yards into the top-right corner in the 15th minute, leaving Youssef Bejaoui helpless in goal.

However, the lead only lasted a few minutes with Berwick's Ross Gray steering a low-footed shot from six yards into John Gibson's net, after latching onto a cross from Kevin McDonald on the left wing.

But despite this rally from Berwick, Elgin took the lead again through a Stuart Leslie goal after 25 minutes from a Daniel Moore cross.

Persistent pressure from the home side in the second half was eventually rewarded when substitute Dennis Wyness turned a right-footed shot into the net with a minute to go.
