Montrose 1-4 East Fife

Nathan Austin's hat-trick put East Fife top of Scottish League Two with a win at 10-man Montrose.

Ross Campbell set up Gary Fraser and he found the back of the net, but Austin turned the game on its head with a couple of goals either side of half-time.

Montrose's task got more difficult when defender Greg Pascazio was shown a straight red card.

Scott Mercer made it four before Austin took his tally to eight for the season.
