Montrose 2-1 Albion Rovers

Bryan Deasley continued his impressive season with a goal in each half as Montrose beat Albion Rovers.

The on-loan striker opened the scoring with a strike into the top-left corner.

Rovers hit back on 24 minutes when Mark McGuigan headed beyond Stuart McKenzie from six yards.

But Deasley grabbed his eighth goal of the campaign when he lobbed Neil Parry 17 minutes from time, meaning the Gable Endies leapfrog Albion in the League Two table.
