Montrose 2-1 Albion Rovers

Montrose came from behind to beat Albion Rovers and move above them in Scottish League Two.

After a goalless first half, Gary Phillips headed in from close range to put Albion Rovers in front but Montrose's response was quick.

Bryan Deasley put a chance on a plate for Scott Johnston, who made no mistake.

Johnston then turned provider for Terry Masson to hammer Montrose's winner into the net.
