Match Preview

Elgin boss faces selection headache Elgin boss Ross Jack could be without six players for the visit of league leaders Arbroath. Paul Kazcan is suspended following his sending off against the Red Lichties during Wednesday night's 2-0 defeat, and Craig Frizzel and Barry Wilson have been ruled out through injury. Midfielder Jake Inglis has a 50/50 chance of featuring, with Jack adding: "Jamie Duff is rated as having even less of a chance than that and the best Paul Miller will get is a seat on the bench." Jack would like to add a couple of loan players before kick-off time, saying: "I am working on a few things just now but there is nothing definite to report." Arbroath welcome back central defenders Stuart Malcolm and Craig Wedderburn from suspension, but Alan Rattray remains sidelined with a knee injury. Player-manager Paul Sheerin has warned his players about thinking this game will be a repeat of the 2-0 midweek success against the same opposition. He said: "I will be on my guard for any complacency as there is always a risk of that after winning a game and then facing the same opponents a few days later. "We need to go about our business correctly and get the three points as Stranraer and Albion Rovers are breathing right down our necks."

Match Report

Elgin edge past Arbroath in thriller Elgin triumphed by the odd goal in five at Borough Briggs to put the brakes on Arbroath's promotion march. A dour first half was more than made up for by a goal-fest in the second as City got revenge for defeat in Arbroath just three days ago, triumphing 3-2. It was the Red Lichties who opened the scoring after 52 minutes when Gavin Swankie played a free-kick into the box which he had won and Keith Gibson headed home. The score was level nine minutes later when Jason Crooks found himself in space six yards out which he duly took advantage of with a low strike. Elgin went ahead in the 74th minute when goalscorer Crooks turned provider with a cross for Mark Nicholson to fire in the top corner from 18 yards. City were 3-1 up just two minutes later when Ross O'Donoghue's 18-yard shot beat Arbroath goalkeeper Darren Hill at his near post. Adam Strachan's effort from 12 yards reduced the deficit for the visitors to make it a nervy last six minutes but Elgin hung on.
