David Greenhill's strike against Montrose was enough to earn East Stirlingshire just their second away win since October.

The midfielder's finish just before the hour mark ended a run of four straight defeats for the visitors.

They could have been celebrating a more comfortable victory had Ross Gilmour's effort not been tipped over by Stuart McKenzie.

Ross McCord, Terry Masson and Paul Harkins threatened for Montrose.
