Montrose 1 Queen of the South 3 (aet)

Despite being two divisions apart, we took this right to the wire with a fabulous effort from every man on the pitch.

We almost took the lead after 3 mins when Masson had a snap shot that Martin could only parry, but McLaren scuffed the follow up from 10 yards.

The visitors first chance came courtesy of a Dillon mistake but with Dobbie looking to pull the trigger, the big defender recovered to make a blocking tackle.

Fleming then pulled off the first of a string of great saves, reacting sharply to a fierce effort from Kane following a corner.

A minute later we took the lead when a great driving run from Steeves seen him lay the ball off to the returning Masson, who coolly side footed home past Martin.

The closest Queens came before the break was when a Stirling shot from inside the box was deflected up and onto the top of the bar.

Dykes came off the bench for the second half and proved a real handful, but Fleming was up for the challenge, first saving from a close range shot and then diving full length to tip round a header.

Just as it looked like we were going to see the game out a knock down from a deep free kick found Dobbie who fired home from the edge of the box with Fleming rooted to the spot.

And so, for the second time this season, we faced extra time and when Fleming denied Murray with another great save, we thought our chance may still come, which it did when Webster let fly a thunderous effort from 25 yards, but with the keeper beaten, we had to watch in agony as the ball smacked off the bar.

Seven minutes from penalties, the full time outfit got the break they needed when a defensive clearance from the edge of the Queens box caught us out and Dykes ran clear to round Fleming and stroke the ball home.

Putting an unfair reflection on the score Dobbie ran to the line in the last minute and somehow managed to squeeze the ball through Fleming's legs from an acute angle, but it did nothing to prevent the Mo faithful from giving the team a standing ovation at the end.

Fantastic effort boys and we now look forward to an other cup tie next weekend.
