Sixth-placed Montrose made it back-to-back wins to move to within two points of East Stirlingshire in League Two.

David Gray opened the scoring after a quarter of an hour, firing Scott Johnston's ball past keeper Grant Hay.

Bryan Deasley doubled the Gable Endies' lead as the half-time whistle neared, finishing high into the goal after Graham Webster's pass.

Johnston was denied by a good Hay save, while Michael Bolochoweckyj shot wide for the visitors late on.
