Forfar Athletic extended their lead at the top of the Scottish League Two table to seven points with a 2-0 win over Berwick Rangers at Station Park.

Arbroath moved into third with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Clyde.

Cowdenbeath overcame Montrose 2-0, while Stirling Albion moved up to seventh with a 3-2 win at second-placed Elgin City.

Edinburgh City snatched all three points in their game against Annan thanks to Ryan Porteous' late header.

Forfar went ahead against Berwick when David Cox scored just before the interval with a neat header from six yards out.

Lewis Milne then added a second four minutes from time.

Bobby Linn was on target in the 31st minute for Arbroath; finding the bottom corner with a neat finish.

Martin Scott scored two in two minutes in the second half to clinch victory for the Red Lichties, who leapfrog their visitors in the table, before Ryan McCord added a fourth late on.

Nikolay Todorov fired Cowdenbeath ahead from the penalty spot in the 20th minute after Cammy Ballantyne fouled Kris Renton in the area.

And it went from bad to worse for the visitors when Ballantyne was shown a red card in the 29th minute for a foul on Craig Johnston.

The hosts extended their lead through Renton's 57th-minute header.

Elgin took the lead against Stirling when Darryl McHardy found the bottom corner with a left-footed strike in the 29th minute.

However, the visitors equalised early in the second half when Marc McKenzie headed home at the back post from an Eddie Ferns cross.

Stirling moved ahead when Blair Henderson pounced from close range after Sean Dickson's shot had been saved by the goalkeeper.

Brian Cameron thought he had rescued a point for his side with a 76th-minute strike, but Jamie Mills scored the winner late on.
