Annan Athletic 2-0 Peterhead

Annan Athletic moved up to second in Scottish League Two with victory against Peterhead at Galabank.

Teenager Josh Todd broke the deadlock in the second half with a right-foot shot from 12 yards.

And a headed own goal by Ryan McGeever, from Andrew Mitchell's corner, secured all three points for the home side.

Kenneth Mackay, Steven Swinglehurst and Martin McNiff also threatened for Annan while Bryan Gilfillan had Peterhead's best effort.
