Annan Athletic trounced Arbroath to move up to second in Scottish League Two.

Josh Todd fired Annan ahead but Arbroath soon equalised through Jamie Reid's fierce drive.

The hosts regained the lead 60 seconds later. A mistake from Arbroath goalkeeper Allan Fleming left Lewis Guy a simple finish.

Todd made it five goals in his last three matches with a neat strike before Smart Osadolor sealed the win late on.
