Chaplain answers Albion's prayers
Albion progressed into the Second Division play-off final in dramatic fashion as Scott Chaplain's superb 90th-minute overhead kick downed Elgin.
Trailing 1-0 to the Third Division side from the first leg, Albion levelled the tie shortly after the hour mark through John Gemmell. And Chaplain stepped up at the close to seal a 2-1 aggregate victory and set up a final showdown with Stranraer.
An exciting opening saw both sides threaten in the first quarter before Gemmell went closest for Albion in the 38th minute, forcing a brilliant parried save from Alexander Clark.
But Gemmell did find the net after the break, volleying home from six yards to level matters.
Chris Boyle then tested Clark before Paul Millar shot wide and Mark Nicolson headed off target at the other end.
Albion keeper Derek Gaston made a decisive stop to keep out Stuart Leslie in the 86th minute, and it was left for Chaplain to settle matters in acrobatic style from 18 yards from Gemmell's header.
