Nine-man Alloa hammered by Elgin
Nine-man Alloa were made to pay for their indiscipline as they were thrashed 5-0 at Elgin in the Scottish Third Division
A period of early Elgin pressure was rewarded after 20 minutes when Daniel Moore's cross was met by Graeme Beveridge, who planted his header into the bottom corner.
City further increased their lead three minutes before half-time when David Niven's long punt found Brian Cameron, who beat Scott Bain with a left-foot finish from the edge of the penalty area.
Alloa had midfielder Mark Docherty sent off in first-half stoppage time for bringing down Cameron and Stuart Leslie stepped up to confidently convert the resulting penalty.
Goalkeeper Bain was next to go, first being booked for fouling Craig Gunn to concede another penalty which Leslie tucked away 10 minutes after the restart and then picking up a second yellow minutes later.
Beveridge completed the rout after 77 minutes, finding the top corner from the edge of the area.
