Montrose 2-1 East Stirlingshire

Montrose maintained their 100% home record with a League Two victory over East Stirling.

Graham Webster set them on course to triumph at Links Park again when the former Dundee midfielder turned home Greg Pascazio's cross.

Gary Fraser converted a Ross Campbell assist to further boost Montrose and keep the visitors at bay.

The Shire plugged away after the break and got their reward when Maxwell Wright finished a left-footed shot.
