East Stirlingshire 0-4 Arbroath

Andy Ryan scored twice as Arbroath sealed their third Scottish League Two victory in a row to further compound rock-bottom East Stirling's woes.

Ryan netted in both halves and won a penalty, which was converted by Robert Linn.

That incident also saw East Stirling defender Conor Greene dismissed.

Martin Grehan added gloss to the scoreline with a fourth as the visitors followed up wins over East Fife and Stirling with another three points.
