Arbroath 3-1 Montrose

Bobby Linn scored twice as Arbroath got back to winning ways against Montrose in Scottish League Two.

Linn opened the scoring with a low finish in the 23rd minute and fired home a second six minutes after the hour mark.

Greg Rutherford converted from close range to put Arbroath three up with 11 minutes to go.

And, although Graham Webster pulled one back, the hosts moved to within two points of their opponents.
