Turriff United 1 Montrose 0

It the week that the club celebrated one of their greatest ever results the 2 – 0 League Cup victory over Hearts at Tynecastle, Montrose suffered one of their most humiliating scorelines in their history as they lost by a single goal to Turriff United in the second round of the Irn Bru Cup.

This was an extremely poor performance by Paul Hegarty’s side at the Haughs and Ross Jack’s side fully deserved their win. Montrose missing Gary Fraser in attack offered nothing going forward and never really looked like scoring and can have no real complaints with the result. Turriff United can now look forward to a home match against Championship side Hibernian as their reward.

After the draw against Arbroath the Gable Endies made three changes to their line up with Millar, trialist Callum MacDonald and Gary Fraser being replaced by Allan Fleming in goal, Kyle Willox making his full debut for the club and Ross Campbell.

The Turriff United line up contained three players with Links Park connections Chris Herd, Leszek Nowosielski and Nick Gray.

With three minutes gone Turriff United created their first opening of the match when Paul Young found space at the edge of the box to fire over the crossbar.

Montrose went close in the sixth minute when Kyle Willox got free on the left but the youngster’s cross was headed wide by Graham Webster.

Gregor Anderson became the first booking of the match when he brought down a home player in the middle of the park.

In the 18th minute Turriff won a corner kick which was taken by Young, his kick was cleared by Anderson only as far as Nowosielski whose shot well over the crossbar.

The home side then forced a couple of corner kicks which the Montrose defence were able to clear.

Nowosielski then fouled Webster in a good position for Montrose but Iain Campbell’s free kick was dealt with by the home defence.

With 26 minutes gone Montrose had their first real effort at goal by Ross Campbell could only drill his left footed effort straight into the arms of keeper Kevin Main.

Montrose had the final opening of the half when Ryan Ferguson shot over after the ball was laid back to him by Webster.

In the opening minute of the second half Turriff United had a good opportunity to open the scoring when a mistake by Iain Campbell allowed Kieczkowski in on goal but he shot straight at Fleming.

Ferguson then linked up with Campbell but the winger couldn’t get in a shot after the ball was returned to him.

Montrose had a penalty claim when McWalter was brought down in the box but referee Liam Duncan waved play on.

Montrose were forced into a change in the 56th minute when Chris Templeman appeared to pick up a hamstring injury and he was replaced by Declan Milne making his first appearance of the season.

Five minutes later Montrose should have opened the scoring when Ferguson and Ross Campbell carved out an opening but the latter somehow couldn’t force the ball home from close range.

The Gable Endies were made to pay for this miss when the home side opened the scoring in the 57th minute when ANDRZEJ KIECZKOWSKI headed home at the near post from a Cameron Booth corner kick. It was no more than Turriff United deserved.

Darren Wood of the home side picked up a yellow card for a foul on Milne as the match hotted up.

In the 68th minute Montrose brought on Greg Pascazio for Ferguson, the switch saw Ross Campbell move into midfield with Pascazio moving into a forward role.

Three minutes later Ross Lennie replaced Anderson at right back for Montrose.

Montrose substitute picked himself a booking in the 72nd minute for dissent shown to referee Duncan from the dugout.

Turriff United’s first change came two minutes later with Mair replacing ex Gable Endie Nowosielski.

The home side were claiming a penalty kick in the 76th minute when Iain Campbell fouled David Booth right on the edge of the box. Cameron Booth’s free was floated into the area but captain Bowden headed at Fleming.

Ex Gable Endie striker Nick Gray then came onto replace Kieczkowski has Turriff United looked to kill the tie.

Three minutes later Gray had a great opportunity to seal victory but he managed to fire over at the back post from a David Booth cut back.

Namesake Cameron was then replaced by James Chalmers.

Montrose suffered another blow when Andrew Steeves was forced from the field with a hamstring injury after collapsing on the side of the pitch after attempting a cross into the box. With all substitutes committed Montrose were forced to play the rest of the game with ten men.

In the final minute of the match Terry Masson went on a lung bursting run to get Montrose a free kick in a very dangerous position but Iain Campbell blasted the ball over the bar and with it went Montrose’s chance to salvage something from a hugely disappointing match.
