Forfar Athletic kept alive two 100% records with their comprehensive 4-0 crushing of Albion Rovers at Station Park.
The Loons made it four wins out of four in competitive action this season, their second League One victory coming on the heels of League and Petrofac Cup successes.
And just as pleasing for Forfar boss Dick Campbell was his side’s fourth clean sheet in succession, keeper Rab Douglas and his defence recording another shut out.
“It was pretty even in the first half but we were in total command the second,” Campbell said.
“My brother Ian had a wee indirect go at the team at half-time and that may have been a bit harsh. There were times in the first half we were on top and others we weren’t. But Rab hasn’t really had a save to make the whole game.
“We adapted to the elements better in the second half I thought. It isn’t easy playing with the wind on an artificial surface. Some of the stuff we played in the second half was worthy of winning any game.”
Chances were at a premium in the first half but the clearest opportunity landed Forfar’s way after only three minutes.
Danny Denholm was sent clear by a lovely defence-splitting pass from Gavin Swankie and his shot was batted away by keeper Ross Stewart.
Love twice tested Forfar with a low free-kick through the wall was gathered by keeper Douglas, then a shot through a ruck of players was hacked away in front of goal by Iain Campbell.
The Loons looked sharper after the break and two goals in three minutes put them in control. They made the breakthrough in the 56th minute from a Campbell corner that picked out Kevin Nicoll and he steered the ball home from 10 yards with a deft flick of the head.
Campbell hit the post with a shot from outside the box moments later before Martyn Fotheringham forced Stewart to turn his shot over the bar.
But in the 59th minute, Campbell swung over a cross for Thomas O’Brien to nod down to Denholm and he hooked the ball into the net from close range.
Teenage sub Kerr Hay then had an immediate impact, grabbing two goals in as many minutes. Firstly he latched on to a Swankie pass to hit a shot low into the bottom corner, then he curled a lovely shot beyond Stewart from just inside the corner of the area.
