Montrose 0 Albion Rovers 2Ten man Montrose Football Club lost their first home league match of the season when they went 2 – 0 to new league leaders Albion Rovers on Saturday.
Manager George Shields side game plan went out of the window in the 4th minute after the sending off of goalkeeper Stuart McKenzie and his fellow team-mates must be praised for the amount of effort they put into the rest of the match despite the result.
Albion Rovers didn’t look that good a side and it would have certainly been interesting to see how the match would have ended up if Montrose had managed to keep eleven men on the park for only the third time this season.
Montrose must now look towards grabbing full points at their next two away fixtures at Elgin City on Saturday and Clyde the following Tuesday.
