Elgin hit top spot

Elgin soared to the top of the Scottish Third Division after recording an impressive 4-1 win at bottom-side East Stirling.

Brian Cameron opened the scoring in the seventh minute as he rifled home a left-footed drive past Ryan McWilliams.

Craig Gunn added the second from close range and Ross O'Donoghue hit a sweet strike past McWilliams for number three six minutes before the interval.

Kevin Turner hit the crossbar for the hosts but Dennis Wyness made no mistake at the other end with the fourth in the 59th minute.

Turner did pull one back for East Stirling a minute later and also hit the woodwork again late on.

Greenhill determined to play in clash

East Stirling include David Greenhill in their squad to face Elgin, with the midfielder determined to play despite the death of his father last Saturday.

Goalkeeper Grant Hay and defender Michael Hunter have been ruled out through injury and Jamie Benton will be absent due to a knee injury, as John Coughlin's side go from playing in front of nearly 50,000 fans at Rangers last week to just 500 at Ochilview.

Coughlin said: "Moving from playing in front of such a big crowd to this game could be an issue for players. I am of a mind to freshen things up with a few changes just to make sure everyone is on their toes.

"Hopefully the changes work as we want our first points of the season on board."

Elgin will be without the suspended Daniel Moore for a second game in succession as they travel to Ochilview.

Former Queens Park midfielder Paul Harkins will be given another chance to impress as a trialist.

And Borough Briggs boss Ross Jack is asking his side to transfer their good home form into an away win.

Jack said: "We have been strong at home now for a couple of seasons but we need to do better on the road. A win in this game would be a good way of helping us to do that but it will not be easy.

"East Stirling shocked Rangers by taking the lead and then nearly shocked them again by scoring a second and that is warning enough."
