Montrose 1 Stenhousemuir 1

The points were shared on Saturday as Montrose played out an arduous 1-1 draw with Stenhousemuir at Links Park.

Neither side could argue about their failure to seal a victory in a game that was a real war of attrition, though the Warriors felt aggrieved not to be awarded a goal when Harry Paton’s strike smacked the crossbar before bouncing off the line and into Allan Fleming’s arms.

Two goals did come in the second half though, Mark McGuigan nodding the visitors into the lead from close range before that was answered by Graham Webster.

And after Montrose dominated the first half and Stenny the second, a draw was certainly the fair result at the end of the afternoon.
The first 15 minutes were a scrappy affair with neither side creating anything in the way of chances.

Chris Templeman began to make his presence felt though and was able to bring the hosts into the game more.

And it was from tidy link-up play involving the big striker that Graham Webster was played through on goal, but the winger was underneath the ball and could only dink his shot well over Chris Smith's bar.

Ruaridh Donaldson should've had the Warriors in front on 19 minutes when he seized onto Sean Dillon’s poor clearance before driving into the box, only to see his low shot go agonisingly wide.

Montrose were inches away from going in front on 27 minutes through Templeman, the striker turning a glancing header just wide from Liam Callaghan’s cross.

No real opportunities came for either side before the break but the Gable Endies were much the better team, controlling the possession for large spells and playing some tidy passing football.

The second half was 30 seconds old when Paton flicked a shot behind him from inside the box, the ball pinged off the crossbar and appeared to be over the line before Fleming caught it but the officials waved for play to continue.

Paton then swung a terrific ball forward for McGuigan to chase only for Fleming to make a tremendous stop from close range.

The Warriors were dominant for a while until Stewart Petrie sent Cammy Ballantyne on for Craig Johnston and moved his side to a back five; the change in shape allowed the Mo to get back into the game and resume the pressure on the Stenny goal.

Martyn Fotheringham swung a free kick wide of the far post after a foul on Templeman, with the keeper at full stretch.

But it was the visitors who took the lead through MARK McGUIGAN, the striker nodding beyond Fleming from point blank range.

The Warriors weren't ahead for long though as GRAHAM WEBSTER, seconds after receiving the captain's armband from the substituted Fotheringham, hammered the ball beyond Smith after his initial shot was saved.
