Montrose 0-4 East Fife

East Fife comfortably beat 10-man Montrose to move up to fourth in Scottish League Two.

Fraser Mullen fired the Fifers ahead and a low shot by Ross Brown doubled their lead.

John McShane headed in Allan Fleming's free-kick two minutes before the interval.

After Montrose's Leighton McIntosh was sent off for violent conduct in the second half, Kevin Smith nodded in a fourth for the visitors.
