Match ends, East Fife 3, Montrose 0.
East Fife preserved their seven-point advantage at the top of Scottish League Two with victory over second-bottom Montrose.
Jason Kerr's shot was deflected in by team-mate Jonathan Page for the opener.
Stevie Campbell fired home a superb free-kick after Aaron Comrie had fouled the Fifers' Kevin Smith.
And with little more than a quarter of the game played, Gary Naysmith neatly played in Nathan Austin to net the third.
