Edinburgh City claim late draw with Elgin to top League Two standings

Edinburgh City returned to the top of Ladbrokes League Two despite conceding a stoppage-time equaliser in a dramatic 3-3 draw with Elgin.

Edinburgh trailed 2-0 at half-time after Kane Hester’s brace but hit back in the second through Allan Smith and Scott Shepherd before Blair Henderson gave them an 88th-minute lead.

But Stephen Bronsky levelled in the third minute of added time for the hosts.

The result moved the visitors a point clear of Peterhead, who were beaten 3-0 at Annan.

David Wilson’s 53rd-minute opener was followed by a Tommy Muir brace as Annan recorded a third straight home win.

Queens Park recorded their first victory since November 10 in style as they thrashed fellow strugglers Berwick Rangers 7-1.

Scott McLean’s penalty and a Kurtis Roberts double had the hosts 3-0 up inside 28 minutes before Rangers goalkeeper Kyle Allison was sent off for an incident in the tunnel during half-time.

And the hosts piled on the misery with another strike from McLean, a David Galt brace and a Danny Rowe effort as Queens Park ended their eight-match losing run.

Jordan Orru scored a late consolation for Berwick, who are on an eight-match losing run of their own.

Peter MacDonald scored a hat-trick as Stirling gained revenge on basement boys Albion with a 5-0 away win.

The hosts’ only win of their league campaign came in September at home to Stirling, but there was to be no repeat as Declan Byrne’s 21st-minute dismissal was ruthlessly punished by the visitors, for whom Darren Smith and Dylan Mackin were also on target.

In the day’s other game, Raymond Grant scored the only goal as third-placed Clyde beat Cowdenbeath 1-0.
