Match ends, Montrose 1, Stirling Albion 3.
Darren Smith was the toast of Stirling after his hat-trick sealed the win at Montrose - a sixth win in seven games.
The striker put the Binos in front early on after profiting from a fine run and pass by Mark Lamont.
Smith doubled his tally shortly after the break with a clinical shot past Jordan Millar.
Smith had to be quick to get to the ball ahead of the advancing goalkeeper to seal the points, with Adrian Mallagaray hitting a smart consolation.
