Berwick Rangers 2-3 Peterhead

Peterhead closed to within a point of League Two leaders Montrose with a hard-earned win at Berwick Rangers.

A header from David McCracken and Rory McAllister's penalty - after a foul on Jordon Brown - had the visitors apparently in control.

But Jack Hamilton and Ousman See replied with strikes either side of the interval to draw the hosts level.

McAllister set up the decisive goal on 71 minutes, delivering the pass to Jack Leitch for a close-range finish.
