Montrose 1-1 Annan Athletic

Annan Athletic moved three points clear at the top of Scottish League Two after extending their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions.

The visitors dominated for long spells at a wet and blustery Links Park, with Ryan Finnie slotting them ahead midway through the first half.

Graham Webster equalised for Montrose five minutes after the break as he fired home Ryan Kenneth's cross.

The hosts then fought determinedly to hold on for a share of the points.
