East Stirlingshire 0-3 Arbroath

Bobby Linn's 10th goal of the season helped leave East Stirlingshire marooned to the bottom of League Two after they went down at home to Arbroath.

Arbroath took the lead when Greg Rutherford broke free and found Josh Skelly inside the area.

Substitute Sergio Cecilia found the corner just after the hour mark to open a two-goal lead.

Linn latched onto a Ramsay through-ball as Arbroath coasted to victory.
