Scottish League Two: Montrose 3-2 East Stirlingshire

Montrose staged a superb second-half comeback to come from two goals to beat East Stirling.

Goals from Kris Faulds and Thomas Orr looked to have set East Stirling on course for victory.

However Graham Webster and Greg Pascazio hit back to pull Montrose level.

Aaron Comrie completed the comeback with just over five minutes to go with a powerful strike into the roof of the net to seal the win.
