Montrose 2 East Stirlingshire 1

Montrose maintained their perfect home record with a good win over East Stirlingshire.
GRAHAM WEBSTER opened the scoring for the home side in the eighth minute, volleying into the net from Ross McCord's free kick to the back post.

Montrose doubled their advantage 13 minutes later when Ryan Ferguson's ball to the byeline was collected by Ross Campbell. The Montrose captain sent a perfectly-weighted pass across the face of goal, leaving GARY FRASER with the relatively simple task of sidefooting into the net.

East Stirlingshire's lack of cutting edge cost them a share of the points, but they did make the final few minutes more nerve-wracking for Montrose when Maxwell WRIGHT fired home with his left foot.

Most of the visitors' chances came from long range during the course of the match, Kristopher Faulds curling a shot over the crossbar from the edge of the box in the eleventh minute. At the other end of the park, Campbell fired wide from 20 yards out.
A minute after doubling Montrose's lead, Gary Fraser could have had his second goal of the afternoon, but he could only head Ferguson's cross against the chest of his marker.
Webster could also have bagged a second goal four minutes into the second half, the winger taking a neat touch from Fraser's square ball but blasting his shot miles over the bar.

Gavin Malin was unfortunate not to score in the 69th minute, his shot deflected wide.
As the match wore on and Shire's desperation grew, their composure slipped, Lloyd Kinnaird slashing wildly at a ball on the half volley, the shot flying well high and wide of the target.

But the visitors were unlucky not to score in the 82nd minute, Nathan Shepherd's low shot bouncing back off the post and into the path of substitute Alistair Roy, only for Montrose defender Greg Pascazio to clear the ball of the line with a well-timed header.
Shire had the ball in the Montrose net a minute before their eventual consolation, David McKenna turning home Roy's ball to the back post, only to be flagged offside.
