Reid shines as leaders are rocked

Mid-table Elgin City cruised to a coupon-busting 3-0 win at Scottish League Two leaders Albion Rovers thanks to an inspired performance from Jamie Reid.

City burst into a fifth-minute lead when Darryl McHardy headed home Reid’s enticing free-kick from the left flank.

Reid then got in on the act himself 21 minutes later as the visitors doubled their lead with a fine counter-attacking goal as the midfielder slotted home from Shane Sutherland’s centre.

Elgin had nothing by way of a response and made the game safe with Reid’s second as his scrappy effort found its way into the net, ending the leaders’ five-game winning streak.
