Peterhead moved five points clear at the top of Scottish League Two with victory over Montrose.

Garry Wood fired Montrose ahead midway through the first half but an own goal by Stephen McNally drew the visitors level early in the second half.

Rory McAllister's low, left-footed free-kick put Peterhead in front and he added another by converting James Redman's pass.

Terry Mason's effort reduced the hosts' arrears but they could not level.
