Elgin City 2-0 Arbroath

Goals in either half from Craig Gunn and Brian Cameron secured Elgin City a win over Arbroath that lifts them into fourth place in Scottish League Two.

Gunn struck after six minutes with a right-footed finish.

He twice was denied by the woodwork after the break, shots coming off the post and crossbar.

Substitute Connor McLaren also hit the bar, diverted by a fine Allan Fleming save, but Cameron's header made sure of the three points late on.
