Albion Rovers 3-0 Montrose

Albion moved three points clear at the top of League Two with a comfortable win over rock-bottom Montrose.

Ally Love scored the opener with a deflected shot off former Rangers defender Marvin Andrews.

Ross Davidson doubled the hosts' advantage on the hour mark when he slotted home a free-kick won by Eddie Ferns.

And Ferns himself put the icing on the cake with a thunderous effort into the top corner seven minutes later.
