Elgin City 2-0 East Stirlingshire

Elgin moved top of Scottish League Two after seeing off rock-bottom East Stirlingshire.

After a lifeless first 45 minutes, Elgin took control when Craig Gunn rifled a spot-kick home into the bottom-left corner.

Brian Cameron put the result beyond doubt with a late goal three minutes from time.

East Stirlingshire - who mustered just one shot on target - remain bottom and are now five points behind Berwick.
