Montrose secured their first win of 2014 against an Elgin City playing their fist match since the departure of Ross Jack as manager.

Graham Webster and Scott Johnston scored from close range to put the visitors two ahead.

Jamie Masson halved Elgin's deficit but a second yellow card for Marc Nicolson reduced the hosts to 10 men.

However, Shane Sutherland levelled the match only for Paul Watson's free-kick to put Montrose ahead again.
