Elgin City picked up another point in their quest for League 2 safety - but there was a stunning result elsewhere.

City earned a 1-1 draw at promotion-chasing Peterhead, and the Black and Whites had several good chances to win it.

It means Allan Hale's side have held both of the top two teams in the league in the past week, having drawn with Stenhousemuir a week earlier.

However, the runaway leaders were on the wrong end of the shock result of the term as they were thrashed 6-1 at home to bottom side Clyde.

The Bully Wee closed the gap on ninth-placed Stranraer to just five points, with City three points further ahead in eighth and bottom of a four-team group separated by just a point.

Both keepers made good saves early on at Balmoor Stadium with Elgin's Tom McHale first in action to deny Kieran Shanks after five minutes.

Three minutes later Dajon Golding forced a stop out of former Elgin keeper Stuart McKenzie.

Mark Gallagher went close for the Black and Whites just a minute before Shanks fired Peterhead into a 12th minute lead.

However, Golding was proving to be a big threat to Blue Toon and he netted the second goal of his loan spell from Cove to equalise after 26 minutes.

The striker was denied a second by a goal-line clearance from ex-City defender David Wilson.

Then in the early minutes of the second half, Golding thought he had edged his team in front with an effort which struck the post.

Russell Dingwall had a great chance to put City ahead on 72 minutes but his effort went past the post.

At the other end McHale made a fine stop from Rory McAllister and Shanks fired over the rebound as both teams had to settle for a point.
