Arbroath 0-2 Albion Rovers

Albion Rovers extended their lead at the top of League Two to four points with victory at Gayfield.

The visitors went ahead after only four minutes when Ali Love lobbed the ball over goalkeeper Marc McCallum.

Robert Linn came close to an equaliser shortly before half-time but his effort was cleared off the line by a defender.

Gary Fisher slotted home the second goal in the 65th minute, while Simon Murray went close for the hosts with a late shot that whistled narrowly wide.

It was a forth straight win for Darren Young's side, while the Red Lichties have gone off the boil with just one success in the last 11 league games, which leaves them eight points behind Rovers.
