VIDEO: Blunders cost Elgin dear

ELGIN City's seventh consecutive away defeat in League 2 has left them on the fringes of the promotion chase.



Gavin Price's side crashed 4-0 at second-bottom Edinburgh City on Saturday.

They also picked up a fresh injury worry when winger Ali Sutherland was taken to hospital with an ankle injury

It was one of City's poorest displays of the season, and another defeat on the road for a team which seems to suffer from travel sickness.

Former Scotland striker Craig Beattie headed the capital side ahead from a corner in 15 minutes.

Elgin then lost their way, conceding three times either side of half time.

The errors kept coming, firstly from City's on-loan Dundee United keeper Brett Long who fumbled Josh Walker's long range effort into the net.

Sloppy marking at a corner gifted Gareth Rodger goal number three just after the break.

With Elgin confidence slumped, a mix-up between Long and centre back Andrew McDonald presented Farid El Alagui with a simple chance to make it 4-0.

The Black and Whites are on thir travels once again this weekend as they visit improving Clyde.

Sutherland's injury is suspected to be ankle ligament damage, potentially ruling him out for a few matches.
