Charlie Reilly fired a second-half double as Albion Rovers beat Elgin 3-0 at home to boost their Scottish League Two survival chances.

Reilly struck twice after a goalless first half, his second from the penalty spot, and Ayrton Sonkur headed Albion’s third.

Max Wright headed over the crossbar for Albion just before the break and Reilly gave them the lead soon after the restart when he fired home from inside the area.

Reilly doubled Albion’s advantage from the spot after Elgin midfielder Evan Towler’s challenge on Joe Bevan and Sonkur headed their third in the 64th minute.

Albion moved four points clear of bottom club Bonnyrigg Rose, while Elgin have registered just one league win in 2023.
