Elgin City 4-0 Montrose

Elgin eased away from the foot of Scottish League Two with a comfortable win over Montrose, who slipped to the bottom of the table.

Ally Gilchrist headed the opener before Montrose's Garry Wood had a penalty saved by Stewart Black.

The visitors' Ewan Moyes was then red carded for a second booking.

Daniel Moore was the creator as Shane Sutherland and Mark Nicholson made it 3-0 at the break, and Jamie Duff added the fourth in the second half.
