Annan Athletic 1-1 Edinburgh City- Match Report

Last updated : 24 September 2016

Forfar extend lead at summit with seventh successive win

Forfar continued their perfect start to the Ladbrokes League Two campaign with a 1-0 victory in their top-of-the-table clash with Clyde.

Thomas O'Brien scored the only goal of the game five minutes before the break to hand the Sky Blues their seventh straight league win.

The victory takes Gary Bollan's side eight points clear of nearest challengers Clyde at the summit.

Meanwhile Elgin climbed up to third after three first-half goals helped them to a 4-0 victory over Stirling at Forthbank.

Elgin broke the deadlock in the fifth minute when Shane Sutherland fired the ball past home goalkeeper Chris Smith, before Chris Dodd doubled the visitors' lead just three minutes later.

Sutherland then made it 3-0 on the half-hour mark as Elgin continued to stamp their authority on the match.

And Jim Weir's side added a fourth in the 89th minute when Craig Gunn struck his fourth league goal of the season.

Stirling announced the departure of their manager Stuart McLaren on their official website following the defeat.

Basement club Edinburgh City battled back to earn their second point of the season in a 1-1 draw at Annan.

The hosts drew first blood after 29 minutes when David McKenna rifled home but the Citizens were back on terms three minutes into the second half courtesy of an own goal from Steven Swinglehurst.

The visitors pushed for a winner as the second half wore on but could not make a breakthrough, with Annan goalkeeper Blair Currie making several important saves to keep the scores level.

Arbroath played out a 0-0 draw with Cowdenbeath at Gayfield Park, while Montrose's clash with Berwick also ended goalless.
