Moore joy for Elgin

Daniel Moore put Elgin on their way to a 3-1 win over Annan at Borough Briggs.

Annan midfielder Steven Sloan almost gave his side the lead in the 12th minute but saw his close-range effort strike the bar.

The hosts went ahead two minutes later when Moore found the bottom corner from 20 yards, before Paul Harkins doubled the lead from the centre of the penalty box nine minutes later.

Craig Gunn made it 3-0 on the brink of half time when he latched onto Moore's pass to fire home from the left side of the area.

The visitors pulled one back in the 54th minute when Michael Daly headed in Sloan's cross from close range.

Elgin had the chance to extend their lead in the 67th minute when Alex Mitchell fouled Harkins in the area, but his penalty was tipped over the bar by Mitchell.

Banned duo back for Elgin

Elgin have Jamie Duff and Paul Harkins available after suspension as they look to end a seven-game winless run when Annan visit.

Stuart Leslie is still banned however, and fellow forward Dennis Wyness is ruled out with a hamstring problem.

Brian Cameron is a doubt with a shin injury.

Borough Briggs boss Ross Jack said: "It is time for us to get winning again and get our play-off push going again.

"If we can win this one then that will be four points picked up from a tough away game at Clyde, and a home encounter with Annan.

"Annan have been refreshed by a new manager and new players coming in so four points out of six would be an acceptable run."

Annan will be without defender Peter Watson and striker Graeme Ramage when they make the trip north.

Watson is struggling with a thigh problem while Ramage is sidelined by a knee injury.

Midfielder Chris Jardine faces a fitness test with a hamstring complaint.

Recently-appointed Galabank manager Jim Chapman is looking for his first win in charge of the Black and Golds.

Chapman said: "Elgin are a very improved side to the one I used to face when I was manager of Dumbarton.

"They will be keen to win this one to get things back on track after a disappointing run, but if my players show the same endeavour that they have against Peterhead and Queen's Park then I will be pleased - particularly if it ends in a win."
