Forfar Athletic's Lewis Milne
Lewis Milne scored twice for Forfar and set up a third goal

Lewis Milne's double helped Forfar Athletic overpower Annan Athletic to move five points clear at the top of Scottish League Two.

The Loons led early on when David Cox nodded in Milne's centre before setting up Thomas O'Brien for the second.

Danny Denholm fired the third high past goalkeeper Blair Currie.

Milne got his head to a Jamie Bain cross to make it four after the break, Aidan Smith pulled one back, but Milne restored Forfar's advantage.

As Forfar, who have a game in hand over second-top Elgin City, consolidated their place at the top, Annan were left five points adrift of Clyde in fifth.
