Montrose 2 Clyde 2

Manager Stewart Petrie made five changes to the starting line up with Lennox, Waddell, Webster, Watson and Cammy F all back in place of Fleming, Quinn, Masson, Mochrie and Milne no doubt with a quick succession of games coming up as we head towards the season end.

Referee Alan Newlands got the game underway with the Mo kicking towards the Dynamo end first. It was a slow start by both sides but Montrose had the better of possession but two balls into the box by Cammy B were easily dealt with by Clyde. It was Cammy B who had the first chance as a long ball from Watson found him in space but under pressure as he cut inside his shot was too high. The same player started the next attack as well but the final ball to McLean was hacked away as defenders outnumbered him.

Little was seen of Clyde as an attacking force in the opening stages but the partnership up front of Goodwillie and St. Mirren loanee Jamieson was always going to be a threat. Jamieson worked the ball into a shooting position but was fouled and following the free kick Nicoll hit the post and fortunately for Montrose it bounced to safety. The minutes ticked by and the first goal could well have gone either way.

Montrose had more possession but by the half hour mark Clyde were coming more into it, then the game sparked into life with two goals inside a minute. Firstly as Cammy B charged into the box he was brought down and GRAHAM WEBSTER made it 1-0 to the Mo from the resultant penalty on 31 minutes.

That lead lasted barely a minute as Montrose gave away a soft goal at the other end. Dillon passed a routine ball back to Lennox who delayed his clearance which was charged down by LEWIS JAMIESON and guess where it ended up, 1-1 it was after 32 minutes.

Worse was to follow for Montrose in the 36th minute as a shot from LEWIS JAMIESON was partly saved by Lennox but slowly crossed the line to give Clyde a 2-1 lead.

Montrose were stunned by the sudden turn around and pegged away as half-time approached. A corner from the right was cleanly headed away by Clyde but only as far as GRAHAM WEBSTER who volleyed in an unstoppable shot from 20 yards to even it up at 2-2 on 42 minutes.

Even then both sides had chances before the half-time whistle. Firstly Goodwillie took a pass from Jamieson but volleyed the chance wide from a good position then Craig Johnston headed wide having beaten keeper Mitchell to the ball from a left wing cross.

Two changes were made for the start of the second half. Quinn replaced Dillon in defence and Mochrie replaced McLean up front, the latter having been booked. Barely had the second half started when Montrose were forced into a third change when Cochrane was hurt in a tackle and replaced by Masson. Montrose had to reorganise again as play drifted but Clyde always had the twin threat of Goodwillie and Jamieson to contend with.

Steeves was yellow carded on 65 minutes in breaking up a threatening attack by Clyde but up front Mochrie was now seeing more of the ball but without finding a telling end product. Milne replaced Watson on 68 minutes as Montrose pushed harder for the vital winning break through. Two corners came to nothing then Clyde broke up play by making two changes with Cuddihy and Jamieson off replaced by Love and Cunningham on 76 minutes. Montrose reacted with Webster off and Rennie on as they stepped up the pace.

Cammy F shot wide, Mochrie jinked into a shooting position only to see Mitchell gather easily, then Rennie shot wide. Five minutes to go and a Milne free kick was headed for a corner as play stopped for several minutes because of a clash of heads which resulted in Lang going off and Rumsby on for Clyde.

Into stoppage time with Johnston chasing a long ball down the left as he cut back to Rennie who shot narrowly wide. Montrose had to be aware of the threat at the other end however and in the 94th minute Goodwillie had a great chance but unusually for him he wasted it. He was promptly substituted by Jack but referee Newlands blew for time as it ended 2-2

A point for the Mo keeps them in the top four and the next game against East Fife at Links Park will be another challenge for both sides as they attempt to finish in the top five. Man of the Match for Montrose was Kerr Waddell for his defensive work but both Cammy B and Graham Webster were candidates as well.
