Montrose 2-1 Berwick Rangers

Montrose ended a nine-game wait for a victory by coming from behind to see off Berwick at Links Park.

Andrew Russell's right-foot finish broke the deadlock in Berwick's favour on the half-hour mark.

Just before half-time, Bryan Deasley fired home to pull Montrose level.

Goalkeepers Stuart McKenzie and Michael Andrews made vital saves before, in 77 minutes, Deasley's cross found Paul Watson whose shot earned Montrose only their third home win of the campaign.
