East Fife 3-0 Montrose

Jon McShane's 90th-minute penalty secured East Fife a comfortable win over Montrose at New Bayview.

Ross Campbell put Gary Naysmith's men in front, neatly dispatching Kevin Smith's low pass.

Smith doubled the home side's lead on the hour when he headed McShane's cross past Stuart McKenzie.

Stopper McKenzie was booked in the final minute for hauling down McShane, who then confirmed the three points for the Fifers.
