Montrose 3-3 Elgin City

Paul Watson struck a late equaliser as Montrose staged a stunning comeback to draw with ElginCity.

A Dennis Wyness strike gave City the lead on 20 minutes but Watson equalised 10 minutes later with his left foot.

Wyness scored a close-range second on the stroke of half-time before Craig Gunn extended Elgin's advantage seven minutes into the second half.

Scott Johnston gave Montrose hope four minutes from time and Watson fired into the top corner in the dying seconds.
