Annan Athletic moved into the League Two play-off places, routing Montrose.

Veteran striker Peter Weatherson bagged a first-half brace, including a penalty, to put the visitors firmly in control at Links Park.

Matthew Flynn and Josh Todd both struck from close range around the hour-mark.

Todd added his second of late on, with Jim Chapman's side rising to fourth, one point clear of Queen's Park, while Montrose drop to ninth after Berwick Rangers and Arbroath both won.
