Peterhead 2-1 Elgin City

Peterhead came from behind to score a stoppage-time winner and move five points clear at the top of Scottish League Two.

Elgin City captain David Niven gave his side the ideal start when his powerful strike flew into the net.

But Graeme Sharp's deflected shot levelled the match midway through the second half.

And James Redman's close-range effort late on completed the comeback and secured the points for the visitors.
