Montrose 3 Elgin City 1

Montrose Football Club took their recent good run to only one defeat in seven as they comprehensively defeated league leaders Elgin City at Links Park with one of the side’s best displays of the season.

Paul Hegarty’s side dominated from start to finish and never gave Elgin City the chance to settle during the ninety minutes and they thoroughly deserved their second win of the season at Links Park over Jim Weir’s powerful side.

In fact one of only two Elgin City’s shots on goal was the unfortunate own goal scored by Montrose Neil Martynuik late in the game which put an unfair reflection on the score line.

Once Montrose opened the scoring through Chris Templeman’s first goal for the side their was going to be only one winner, further goals came through a stunning strike from top goalscorer Gary Fraser and another from Adrian Mallagaray. There could have been more goals but in the end Montrose settled on the three goals and another excellent home victory.

Montrose now go into a double header away from home against the leagues bottom two sides Berwick Rangers and East Stirlingshire in which they will be looking to pick up more valuable points.

After the draw at Annan Athletic Montrose made two changes to the side with the ill Alex Tokarczyk and injured Graham Webster being replaced by Jordan Millar and Greg Pascazio.

This saw a reshuffle to the side with Pascazio taking up a full back role with Aaron Comrie pushing into midfield alongside Terry Masson.

The Gable Endies listed former Arbroath midfielder Kieran McWalter on the bench as a trialist after his release by his home town club.

Montrose had an early opportunity when Mallagaray broke free down the right Campbell headed on his cross only for the Fraser to see his shot hit a visiting defender.

Mallagaray then created an opportunity for Aaron Comrie playing in midfield but his effort was blocked for a throw in. Comrie’s throw in was headed across goal by Templeman but nobody was on hand to connect with the lose ball.

Montrose were keeping up the pressure and in the eighth minute Terry Masson let fly from 20 yards out but he sent the ball wide of goal.

In the 12th minute Montrose almost opened the scoring from a quickly taken corner kick. Mallagaray played the ball short to Fraser before taking the return pass and curling in an effort from the right which almost caught out keeper Mark Hurst who back peddled to tip the ball over the crossbar.

The visitors managed to carve out their first opening in the 19th minutes after Masson fouled Easton 20 yards out. Easton took the free kick only for Jordan Millar to get down well to save.

With 32 minutes Greg Pascazio picked up the first yellow card of the afternoon for Montrose for a foul on Elgin City dangerman Daniel Moore.

Montrose went close to opening the scoring in the 32 minute when Masson won the ball in a tackle with Templeman and took the return pass from the striker only to drag his low effort wide of goal when he could have taken the ball further towards goal.

With five minutes of the half remaining Montrose craved out an opening when Steeves, Mallagaray and Fraser linking up only for the striker to be taken out of the game by Duff. Amazingly referee Steven Reid saw nothing the matter and allowed play to continue.

With three minutes of the half remaining Montrose finally made the pressure pay off when they opened the scoring. Mallagaray gave the ball to CHRIS TEMPLEMAN on the edge of the area and the striker went one way then another before powering home his first goal for his new side.

Montrose showed they meant business at the start of the second half when Fraser won an early corner kick. Mallagaray’s corner kick was headed up in the air and as it came down Ross Campbell could only head the ball straight at Hurst.

In the 49th minute Montrose should have added a second. Mallagaray sent over an inch perfect cross from the right which landed on the head of Gray Fraser but he could only send his effort inches wide of the far post when it looked easier to score.

Brian Cameron tried to get Elgin City back into the match but he could only send his effort sailing over the crossbar.

Montrose scored a wonderful second goal in the 56th minute. Millar’s kick out was headed on by Campbell before the ball was hooked forward by Masson, Elgin City’s Duff cleared only as far as Templeman and he slipped through a perfect pass to GARY FRASER who still had a lot to do but he made it look easy as he sent a screamer into the top corner for his 15th goal of the season.

Elgin City tried to hit back and McKenzie won a free kick when he was fouled by Martynuik. Moore swung over the free kick but Millar was on hand to gather easily.

Elgin City made their first change of the afternoon when Kyle McLeod came onto replace Mark McKenzie.

On the hour mark the Montrose fans where in dreamland when they added a third goal. A long throw in on the stand side from Campbell was headed on by Templeman and ADRIAN MALLAGARY stole in to stab the ball home.

Elgin City made a double switch in the 67th minute when Stevie Ross and Mathew Cooper came on to replace Sam Dryden and Dylan Easton.

Montrose went close to adding a fourth gaol in the 70th minute. Fraser held his run and was onside he raced into the box and found Ross Campbell, looking to get into the scoring act but Hurst did well to tip his effort around the post.

Moore won a corner kick in a rare Elgin City attack but Millar was on hand to push the corner kick away from the penalty box.

With ten minutes remaining another Campbell throw in was headed on by Templeman but Fraser’s turn and shot hit the side netting.

Seconds alter Montrose made their first change of the match when man of the match Chris Templeman was replaced by Ryan Ferguson. Ferguson went into midfield with Campbell pushed up top.

Ferguson almost scored a fourth for Montrose with his first touch of the ball he raced onto a Campbell pass inside the area only to side foot the ball wide from close range.

With five minutes remaining Adrian Mallagaray became the second Montrose player to be booked after a late challenge on Thomas Reilly.

It was to be the impressive Spaniards last action of the match as he was replaced by trialist Kieran McWalter seconds later.

In the 87th minute Kyle McLeod came on to replace Gary Fraser who had ran himself to the ground.

Two minutes into stoppage time Elgin City grabbed a consolation goal with their first effort on target in the match, unfortunately it was an own goal from Montrose’s NEIL MARTYNUIK who managed to bullet home a cross from Nicholson leaving Millar totally helpless.
