Falkirk 0 Montrose 3

Montrose got back to winning ways emphatically with a performance far better than in the previous couple of weeks. Three changes were made to the starting line-up with Quinn, Cammy B and Johnston in for Cammy F, Watson and Milne. Falkirk had former Mo player Aaron Sinclair in their side as well as former Celtic player Lee Griffiths and the referee was Stewart Luke.

The game started with end-to-end stuff but from the off Montrose looked the sharper. Young Cameron baffled a Falkirk defender but was bundled off the ball before he could get a cross in. Gardyne was badly fouled on 3 minutes with a defender being lectured but the free kick went too high. The first Falkirk effort ended up offside then a Whatley shot from a lay-back just went wide.

It was not long before the first goal however which Montrose deserved on the run of play. LYALL CAMERON latched onto a loose ball 15 yards out to find the bottom corner for his first Montrose goal in the 13th minute.

Groans from the frustrated Falkirk crowd hardly encouraged their side and Whatley almost made it two for Montrose but his rasper of a shot was parried for a corner by keeper Robbie Mutch. The Bairns then had three successive corners two of which were dealt with easily and Fleming got on the end of the third one to get it away. Pressure over, and the Mo got back on top with two corners and Cammy B made keeper Mutch stretch to keep out the shot for yet another corner.

For Falkirk the nearest they got was a shot from the left by Kabia which hit the upperside of the bar and over the top. Before the half-time whistle Cammy B made Mutch stretch again to keep another shot out but it stayed 1-0 to Montrose at the break.

The second half started with no changes to either side and Montrose continued with the upper hand. Another corner was given and a shot was deflected wide and a Cammy B cross was headed wide. Falkirk were going wide with Nesbitt prominent but his low cross found no takers and the chance was wasted. The first yellow card went to Paul Dixon for a high challenge on Craig Johnston as the game went to the 60-minute mark and Falkirk made the first change with the dangerous Nesbitt off and being replaced by Morrison and Montrose responded with Mine on for the injured Quinn as the Mo went three at the back.

A second yellow for Falkirk on 61 minutes as Brad McKay sent Blair Lyons flying.
Johnston got on the end of a Montrose cross from the right but his hasty effort went too high from close range. The Bairns were under pressure from their own crowd and made another change on 65 minutes with Ross on for Miller but it made little difference to the Montrose pressure as Cammy B charged into the box and was upended with the referee having no choice but to give the penalty.

Up stepped MICHAEL GARDYNE to bulge the net this time to make it 2-0 in the 71st minute.

Into the 75th minute and with breathing space the Mo brought on Paul Watson to replace Gardyne. It was Montrose who saw their first yellow card on 84 minutes as Masson was adjudged to have been the aggressor but the free kick was wasted. Two corners by Falkirk were also wasted going into the last five minutes and McGuffie replaced Kabia and Montrose replaced Craig Johnston with ROSS CAMPBELL who wasted no time to make it 3-0 when a header by Watson was helped on its way to the back of the net from a couple of yards out on 89 minutes.

Into stoppage time and the yellow cards were evened up when Blair Lyons was carded and the rest of the time was dealt with comfortably by the better team on the day as Montrose won 3-0

A great effort today by Montrose but the Man of the Match goes to a very impressive performance by young Lyall Cameron who excelled in midfield and was eager to have the ball every time and he topped off his performance with his first goal for the club.

Finally a good away crowd for Montrose today which without doubt aids the players especially when the non-stop Hamish is in such voice – and long may that continue.
