Montrose 1-5 Arbroath

Goalkeeper David Crawford scored as Arbroath thrashed Montrose.

Close-range strikes from Simon Murray and Dylan Carreiro put the visitors two up.

Garry Wood gave the hosts hope with a penalty before Crawford's seemingly innocuous free-kick from his own half found its way into the Montrose net.

Opposite number Lucas Birstingl was sent off for serious foul play and Paul McManus scored the resulting spot-kick before netting again before the end.
