Montrose 1-3 Stranraer

Scottish Football League

A Sean Winter double helped Stranraer move top of Division Three after a comfortable win at Montrose.

The hosts took an early lead, with Martin Boyle finding the back of the net after three minutes with a low strike.

Winter's drew Stranraer level seven minutes before the break as the midfielder latched on to Craig Malcolm's assist before finishing past goalkeeper Sandy Wood.

Malcolm then completed the turnaround in the 73rd minute, letting fly from 20 yards and finding the top corner.

Winter scored his fourth goal in two games seven minutes from time, striking home from the edge of the penalty area to send Keith Knox's side back to the summit.
