Linn lifts Smokies to victory over Montrose
Robert Linn scored twice as Arbroath got back to winning ways with a 3-1 home victory over Montrose in Ladbrokes League Two.
The hosts bounced back from their defeat to leaders Annan, which ended a run of three straight wins, to put their early-season struggles further behind them.
Linn opened the scoring with a low finish in the 23rd minute and fired home a second six minutes after the hour mark.
Greg Rutherford converted from close range to put Arbroath three up with 11 minutes to go and, although Graham Webster pulled one back three minutes later, it was too little too late as the hosts moved to within two points of their opponents.
