Montrose 0-2 Arbroath

Arbroath claimed the spoils in the Angus derby as they beat Montrose at Links Park.

Top goal scorer Robert Linn got the ball rolling just after the half-hour mark.

Mark Whatley doubled their advantage in the second half as Montrose have now gone nine straight games without a win in all competitions.

Todd Lumsden's men remain seventh while Montrose are only a point off above bottom club East Stirlingshire.
