Two first-half strikes from Shane Sutherland helped Elgin City to victory over Berwick Rangers in Scottish League Two.

Both of Sutherland's goals came from the middle of the penalty area.

Berwick improved in the second half and created a number of chances to get back into the game.

But the best of these, a Lee Currie free-kick, was tipped onto the bar by Elgin goalkeeper Raymond Jellema late on.
