Montrose 1 Arbroath 1

MONTROSE picked up their first point of the season with a draw against 10-man Arbroath at Links Park.

The visitors had taken the lead in the 33rd minute when Bryan Prunty capitalised on an error by Andrew Steeves to take the ball around goalkeeper Jordan Millar, before passing back to RYAN McCORD, who sidefooted into the net.

Montrose struggled to make a breakthrough, but the match turned in their favour when McCord was dismissed for a second yellow card on the hour mark.

The Gable Endies finally managed to capitalise in the 77th minute when CHRIS TEMPLEMAN headed home from Terry Masson's corner.

Montrose could have been ahead early on through Graham Webster, but the winger fired wide of the target twice in the opening two minutes.

The same player came close to opening the scoring just before the half hour mark when he was released by Ryan Ferguson. Webster took a touch but his shot across goal rolled out for a goal kick.

After falling behind, Montrose could have equalised four minutes later when Ferguson was sent clear down the right. His low shot across goal sat up for Templeman, but the sliding striker couldn't connect with his outstretched leg.

Templeman had a header held by goalkeeper Robbie Mutch in the 39th minute, then the same player had a goal disallowed in the 57th minute when he headed in an Iain Campbell cross from an offside position.

Although Arbroath manager Dick Campbell used all of his substitutions to counteract McCord's sending off, his side could have snatched a victory at the death, but Kane Hester blasted over the bar from eight yards out.
