Montrose 0 Elgin City 5

Montrose Football Club are still looking for their first home victory of the season as they crashed to their heaviest defeat of the season in the wind and the rain at Links Park.

The visitors adapted to the conditions from the off and ran out comfortable winners against a Gable Endies side who just didn’t turned up for the match.

Paul Hegarty and John Holt showed faith in the side that defeated league leaders Forfar Athletic but Montrose were never at the races. They looked venerable every time Elgin City had a set piece and created very little in the way of a shot at goal and in the end very much got what they deserved.

It will take a far better performance to get past Preston Athletic whom they play in the Scottish Cup this coming Saturday.

Elgin City with the horrendous conditions in their favour got the match off to the best possible starts when they opened the scoring in the second minute. McPhee swung over a corner kick to the back post where centre half DARYL McHARDY was on hand to send an easy header into the bottom corner.

Two minutes later a snap shot from the edge of the box from Chris McLeish was well saved by Fleming.

Montrose created their first chance in the seventh minute when Masson was fouled by Reilly. Masson took the free kick himself and when the ball was cleared it found Bolochoweckyj who fired a volley straight into the arms of Waters.

McHardy tried his luck again in the 13th minute but he shot wide from 20 yards out.

It was all Elgin and after a great turn from Sutherland he fed the ball through to Jamie Reid but he shot well wide of the far post.

The visitors scored a deserved second goal in the 17th minute and again it was from a set peace. Dodd curled over a corner and McHARDY again found himself this in the centre of goal to bullet a header past Fleming.

Montrose had their best chance of the match in the 26th minute when Kieran McWalter picked up a clearance and his 25 yard volley was well saved by Waters.

In the following minute Fleming did brilliantly to tip over a Thomas Reilly shot and it was from the resultant corner kick Elgin City scored again. Again it was a McPhee corner that caused the problems with the home defence failing to clear and BRIAN CAMERON was on hand to drive the ball home at the far post.

Ten minutes before the half time whistle Gary Fraser’s frustrations got the better of him at an Elgin City corner and he was booked for dissent.

This proved to be costly for the player when he slide in with a late tackle on Reilly two minutes later and was shown a second yellow followed by a red to make his team-mates afternoon even more difficult with ten men.

Montrose tried to hit back early in the second period when Masson worked a one-two before sending a 25 yard effort wide of goal.

In the 50th minute Masson picked up a yellow card for a late tackle on Reilly.

In the following minute Elgin City scored a fourth goal. Cameron slide the ball across the face of the goal and SHANE SUTHERLAND was on hand to slide the ball home from six yards out.

Two minutes later Montrose made a change with Masson being replaced by Cammy Ballantyne.

The grim afternoon continued in the 56th minute when Montrose were reduced to nine men. Anderson over hit a square pass across the face of the goal and this put McLeish through on goal. In trying to rectify the situation Callum MacDonald stuck out a leg and caught the visiting player and brought him down. Referee Munro was quickly over to show MacDonald the red card.

Thankfully for Montrose McPhee sent his free kick wide of goal.

It was now a training exercise for the visitors and they looked to add to their tally with Reid having a shot deflected over and McLeish heading a Dodd cross wide.

In the 65th minute Elgin City brought on Stewart for Reilly.

A minute later Montrose brought on Jonny Court for Templeman.

The substitutions continued with Elgin City bringing on Craig Gunn for McLeish and then Bruce for Dodd.

With fifteen minutes left Alan Fleming got down well to save from Brian Cameron.

In the 78th minute Montrose made their final substitution with Scott Hynd coming on to replace Ryan Ferguson.

The Montrose defensive howlers continued with six minutes left. They tried to play an offside which didn’t work. The danger seemed to be averted when Gunn somehow couldn’t force the ball home from on the touchline. But Fleming in the Montrose goal didn’t moved and the ball came back into the path of BRIAN CAMERON who rammed home his second of the afternoon.

With five minutes left Montrose almost grabbed a consolation goal when Ballantyne crossed from the right but Hynd just couldn’t force the ball home from close range.

This was an awful performance by the Gable Endies, hard to believe it was the same side that had handed out league leaders Forfar Athletic their first defeat of the season in their last outing.
