Match ends, Elgin City 1, Stirling Albion 0.
Elgin had to work hard to see off a spirited Stirling to continue their good start to the season.
The away side could claim to have won a battle of sorts in keeping Craig Gunn quiet, but it was not enough.
The Black and Whites found their solitary strike when Kyle MacLeod rifled in from close range after a good pass by Daniel Moore.
Stirling weathered the storm and Sean Dickson had a half chance, but the hosts merited their victory overall.
