Annan Athletic 1-0 Montrose

Josh Todd's second-half strike was enough to give Annan Athletic victory over Montrose in Scottish League Two.

Montrose threatened early on with Bryan Deasley's powerful drive forcing a fine save from Kenny Arthur.

Calum Ferguson headed wide and Scott Davidson hit the post as Annan asserted themselves.

Todd rifled home just after half-time and Arthur denied Scott Johnston and Ross McCord to keep the hosts' lead intact.
