Montrose 0 Queen of the South 0

Montrose Football Club lived to fight another day in the William Hill Scottish Cup when they drew 0 – 0 with Championship side Queen of the South at Links Park on Saturday in the third round tie.

The sides will now meet again for the third time in six weeks at Palmerston Park on Tuesday night for a place in the fourth round and all to play for.

In an entertaining goal less draw both sides had chances to win the tie, in a match that had very little clear cut efforts with Montrose more than matching a side two leagues above them.

Stewart Petrie made three changes to the Montrose line up that had drawn with Annan Athletic the previous week with Martyn Fotheringham, Liam Callaghan and Connor McLaren replacing Watson, Masson and Templeman who all dropped to the bench.

On a bitterly cold day for football Martyn Fotheringham had the first opportunity of the first half for Montrose but his long range effort went over the Queen’s crossbar.

Queen of the South missed a glorious chance to open the scoring with five minutes gone. Dobbie skinned a couple of Montrose players on the right and fired over a perfect cross which somehow was missed by Derek Lyle when an open goal waited him.

Five minutes later Montrose had a good chance of their own. A ball up the right flank by Allan saw Johnston racing into the box but with a shooting opportunity awaiting Ballantyne took the ball off his toes and fired into the side netting.

A mishit Queens’s clearance gave Montrose an opportunity as Connor McLaren latched onto the ball but the striker just couldn’t find a pass.

Craig Johnston had Montrose’s next chance but his effort from the edge of the box hit a Queen of the South defender and the ball looped into the arms of keeper Alan Martin.

In the 32nd minutes a free kick from Iain Campbell was headed back across goal by Craig Johnston but none of his team mates could force home the ball from close range.

Montrose had another good opportunity in the 37th minute when they won a free kick on the far side of the park. Fotheringham curled over the ball and Craig Johnston managed to head wide at the far post.

The home side created another good opportunity in the 48th minute when Johnston and McLaren linked up on the left and found Steeves. His cross was to the near post and Redman’s shot was deflected out for a fruitless corner kick.

Five minutes into the second half Montrose thought they should have had a penalty kick when Ballantyne went down in the box after a challenge from a visiting defender but no penalty was given and the flag was already up for offside.

With 57 minutes gone Queen of the South made a change with Lyndon Dykes coming on for Andrew Stirling.

Both sides made a switch in the 66th minute when Montrose replaced Connor McLaren with Templeman and the visitors brought on Connor Murray for James McFadden.

Two minutes later Montrose sent on captain Paul Watson for Martyn Fotheringham.

With fifteen minutes remaining Queen of the South won a free kick in a dangerous position when Matty Allan fouled Stephen Dobbie. Dobbie took the kick himself but Fleming got well to save.

Man of the Match Ballantyne then raced up the right flank and found Liam Callaghan but his cross was too deep and the chance was gone.

With five minutes left the visitors made their last change when Derek Lyle came on for Ross Ferguson.

In the 87th minute Iain Campbell kept Montrose in the tie when he headed the ball off the line from a Darren Brownlie header from a Queen’s set play.

Montrose almost lost the tie in stoppage time when Ballantyne in trying to usher the ball out of play lost the ball to Dykes he squared the ball to the unmarked Ross Ferguson who put the ball over the crossbar from point blank range when it looked easier to score.

Ballantyne became the only booking of the match when he showed dissent to referee McKendrick in the aftermath of the Queens late chance.

Montrose made their final change in the last minute of stoppage time when Kerr Hay replaced Johnston.
