Forfar thwarted by Gable Endies

Previously unbeaten Ladbrokes Scottish League Two leaders Forfar were surprisingly beaten 3-1 at home by Montrose.

Gary Fraser and Christopher Templeman scored either side of half-time for the visitors before Gary Fraser added a 66th-minute penalty after Stuart Malcolm's foul.

Danny Denholm headed a stoppage-time consolation goal for Forfar, who had won their first seven games of the season before this result.

Forfar lead by seven points after second-placed Clyde were held to a 1-1 draw at fourth-placed Berwick.

Clyde led through Sean Higgins's 18th-minute header but Berwick levelled via Steven Thomson's left-footed effort just before the break.

Berwick's Michael McKenna was sent off two minutes from time for second bookable offence.

Third-placed Elgin were beaten 2-0 at home by Annan, who moved up to fifth.

Darren Ramsay gave Annan a third-minute lead and David McKenna's 47th-minue penalty after Marc Waters' foul doubled the advantage.

Bottom side Edinburgh City and Arbroath played out an entertaining 3-3 draw.

Omar Kader put visiting Arbroath ahead early on but Marc Laird soon equalised.

Ricky Little headed Arbroath in front just after the break only for Ouzy See to level soon after.

In the 74th minute See put Edinburgh ahead for the first time but the lead lasted on five minutes thanks to Martin Scott. A minute later Arbroath's Shaun Harrison was sent off for unsporting behaviour.

Managerless Stirling were 2-0 winners at Cowdenbeath.

Stirling, who separated from Stuart McLaren last weekend, took an early lead through Isaac Layne.

Darren Smith doubled the visitors' advantage in the 63rd minute, giving caretaker manager Martyn Corrigan a win.
