East Stirlingshire 0-1 Montrose

East Stirlingshire's play-off hopes were dealt a blow by a surprise home defeat by bottom club Montrose.

Ross Campbell scored the only goal of the game to leave Shire five points adrift of fourth-place East Fife.

The hosts started well and threatened early on through David McKenna, Luke Donnelly and then Kevin Nisbit - but none of the trio worked the goalkeeper.

Donnelly and Nisbit had chances after the goal and both should have done better than miss the target.
