Annan Athletic 1-3 Albion Rovers

Ali Love scored two first-half goals as Albion Rovers beat Annan Athletic to stay top of League Two.

With Michael Dunlop and Mark McGuigan doing the set-up work, Love notched his double within six minutes.

The lively Peter Weatherson then reduced the deficit with a low strike.

McGuigan nodded home Edward Fern's cross to make it 3-1, with Weatherson going close to his second of the match late on, only to be denied by visiting keeper Neil Parry.
