Albion Rovers romped to victory against Elgin City in Scottish League Two.

Ciaran Donnelly's strike put the hosts ahead and Liam Cusack curled home a second before Gary Phillips added a third from close range.

Elgin's Dennis Wyness pulled one back two minutes after the break but Scott Chaplain's penalty restored Rovers' three-goal lead.

And Chaplain struck again after Shane Sutherland had netted a second for the visitors.
