The two lower leagues remain topped by Angus clubs following the latest round of fixtures as Forfar Athletic and Arbroath both secured victories.

Dick Campbell’s Loons are two points clear of Stranraer following their 2-1 win over Stirling Albion.

Darren Dods had given the hosts the lead before Steven Doris levelled right on half time.

Super sub Martyn Fotheringham grabbed the winner with nine minutes remaining, and with both Greenock Morton and Dunfermline Athletic dropping points, the Loons continue to pull away from their full-time rivals.

Arbroath played out a classic at East Stirlingshire, winning 3-2 after an explosive afternoon.

Simon Murray gave the Lichties the lead at Ochilview Park after 20 minutes before two goals in as many second-half minutes from David McKenna and Neil McCabe put Shire in front.

But Paul McManus made it 2-2 with 17 minutes remaining before sealing the three points and the comeback with his ninth league goal.

Brechin City were unfortunate not to beat Greenock Morton as they saw a 2-0 lead wasted.

Andrew Jackson and Jamie Masson scored within the first 20 minutes before Jamie McCluskey pulled one back just past the hour mark.

And Declan McManus ensured the points were split with his penalty in the 90th minute.

Montrose went down 2-1 at home to high-flying Queen’s Park.

John Carter gave the Spiders the lead on 24 minutes before Paul Woods doubled the lead shortly after.

Garry Wood was able to pull one back for the Gable Endies from the penalty spot but the hosts couldn’t get an equaliser, and they remain seventh in the table.

This weekend, League One leaders Forfar will look to continue their title push at home to Airdrieonians, who beat Dunfermline 3-1 on Saturday.

Brechin City visit Ochilview Park to play Stenhousemuir.

In League Two, Arbroath are at home to Berwick Rangers, who are now sixth in the table, while Montrose visit second-placed Albion Rovers.
