Around the grounds

It was a good weekend for the majority of the Angus sides - with three out of the four sides recording victories.

Only Arbroath suffered defeat - losing 2-1 to Elgin City. The Lichties took the lead in the 58th minute thanks to Bobby Linn’s strike, but they could only hold their lead for three minutes before Craig Gunn equalised from six yards.

Elgin then took the lead in the 73rd minute, with Shane Sutherland netting the winning goal.

Following the result, the club parted ways with Allan Moore the following day, with a statement saying: “After a prolonged period of poor results and discussions at board level, Allan Moore is no longer manager of Arbroath FC.”

Meanwhile, long suffering Montrose fans had three points to celebrate after the Gable Endies defeated East Stirlingshire by a single goal at Ochilview. Ross Campbell netted the only goal of the game in the 21 minute, and although David McKenna, Luke Donnelly and Kevin Nisbit all threatened for the homeside, Montrose held on to their lead.

In League One, Forfar Athletic went top of the league following their win over Airdrieonians at Station Park. Martyn Fotheringham opened the scoring when he fired in a low shot in the 30th minute. Michael Dunlop sealed the victory with a close-range header in the 89th minute.

Title rivals Stranraer suffered a defeat to Dunfermline, giving the Loons a two point gap at the top with three games to go.

Brechin City retained their grip on a play-off spot with their 2-1 victory over Stirling Albion - confining the Binos to relegation to League Two in the process.

Andy Jackson scored in the 12th minute to give City the lead. Despite City having the majority of the chances, Stirling equalised in the 87th minute through substitute Jordan Sinclair. However, Jackson assured City a deserved victory when he scored in the final minute of injury time.

In League One this weekend, Brechin will host Dunfermline, while Forfar continue their push for the title when they travel to Peterhead. In League Two, both sides are at home as Arbroath welcome Queen’s Park and Montrose host Elgin.
