Berwick Rangers 1-0 Montrose

Berwick gave themselves extra breathing room at the bottom of Scottish League Two with a win over Montrose.

Both Jordan McGregor and Blair Henderson went close to an early breakthrough but Montrose managed to keep them at bay until half-time.

However, Henderson rose highest to head home Finn Graham's cross for what could be a huge goal for Berwick.

Berwick are now five points clear of bottom side East Stirlingshire and just three points behind Montrose.
