Montrose 0 Edinburgh City 1

Montrose Football Club are still looking for their first home win of the new season as they allowed Edinburgh City do a smash a grab routine to record their first ever league win at Links Park Stadium on Saturday.

The visitors rarely troubled Montrose at all during the match but still managed to grab all three points. The Gable Endies started brightly and had opportunities to score but just fell oput of the game and once Edinburgh City scored from a soft penalty kick the hosts huffed and puffed without ever really looking like scoring in what was a poor match.

After the results at Cove Rangers and Turriff United this was another poor performance by Montrose in what is looking like another difficult season based on these type of results.

Montrose now face a tricky week with visits to Annan Athletic and Cowdenbeath coming up.

Three changes were made to the side that defeated Preston Athletic in the cup. Out went the ill Michael Bolochoweckyj and the suspended pair of Gary Fraser and Callum MacDonald and into the side came Gregor Anderson, the fit again Andrew Steeves and Jonny Court.

Montrose created the first chance of the match in the second minute when Ballantyne and Court linked up down the right before Court slipped the ball to Webster but the winger chose to shoot instead of passing to the unmarked Templeman and the chance was wasted.

Three minutes later Webster was fouled by Gair but from a good position Iain Campbell blasted over the crossbar.

The home side had a great chance to open the scoring in the seventh minute when a great reverse pass from Ferguson put Jonny Court through on goal but with only Stobie to beat the keeper pulled off a great save.

The defensive visiting side came out of their shell in the 13th minute when McConnell found Beattie who laid the ball off to McFarland who curled the ball over the bar.

Edinburgh City were forced into a substitution in the 23rd minute when injured ex Scotland international Craig Beattie was forced off to be replaced by Allum.

Montrose had another good chance with ten minutes of the half remaining when Ballantyne slipped a pass to Graham Webster whose shot was well saved again by Stobie.

In the next minute an Iain Campbell corner caused panic in the away penalty area. Masson launched the ball up in the air before Anderson knocked the ball down but Court couldn’t force home.

Montrose switched off with five minutes of the half remaining and a free kick from the half way line put See through on goal but with only Allan Fleming to beat he shot past the post.

Court then showed some great footwork to skip past two players only for his cut back to find nobody.

Chances were few and far between at the start of the second period and it wasn’t the 58th minute that substitute Allum shot into the arms of Fleming.

Four minutes later Kieran McWalter burst into the box but he just couldn’t get his shot away.

Disaster struck Montrose in the 63rd minute when Edinburgh City were awarded a penalty kick. Steeves missed with the first tackle but Campbell connected with the second challenge it looked soft but referee Munro thought otherwise. Unfortunately Fleming couldn’t repeat his heroics from the Preston Athletic match and DOUGLAS GAIR scored with the spot kick.

Four minutes later full back Aaron Dunsmore had an effort at goal but he fired straight into the arms of Fleming.

Montrose made a double switch in the 70th minute with Ross Campbell and Scott Hynd coming on to replace Templeman and Ferguson.

Play became scrappy as Montrose played long balls up the park as the visitors playing a five man defence seemed happy just to mop up everything.

With five minutes remaining the visitors brought on Sean Muhsin for McConnell.

Montrose almost grabbed an equaliser seconds later when their most dangerous player Graham Webster cut in from the left and from just outside the box he curled and effort inches over the bar with Stobie beaten.

Paul Watson became the final Montrose substitute when he replaced Webster.

In the final minute Montrose passed up a final opportunity to equalise when Ross Campbell got on the end of a Masson corner kick but only headed into the arms of Stobie on the goalline.

That was it for Montrose and the whistle sounded on what came only be described as another sad day in the club’s history.
