Montrose 3 Edinburgh City 0

Montrose Football Club got back to winning ways on Saturday when they defeated Edinburgh City for the fourth time this season to remain level at the top of the division with a game in hand over Peterhead.

Once Montrose took an early lead through Lewis Milne there was only going to be one winner on a bitterly cold afternoon at Links Park in front of a healthy crowd of 582.

After the defeat by Clyde the previous week manager Stewart Petrie made four changes to his line up as he continued to rota his squad. Matty Allan returned after seven weeks out with a broken hand also into the side came Michael Bolochoweckyj, Liam Callaghan and for a full debut Martin Rennie. They took the place of Paul Watson, Martyn Fotheringham, Terry Masson and Gary Fraser who all dropped to the bench.

Montrose had a chance to open the scoring in the second minute when Ballantyne crossed from the right and Martin Rennie’s near post effort was blocked for a corner kick.

The home side didn’t have long to wait to open the scoring as two minutes later a defence splitting ball from Rennie put LEWIS MILNE through on goal and he raced to clear to fire the ball home through the legs of keeper Calum Antell for his fourth goal of the season.

Montrose almost doubled their lead in the tenth minute when Milne’s corner kick found its way to the back post where the long legs of Templeman almost stretched to knock the ball into the net.

The Gable Endies did add a deserved second goal in the 17th minute. After a great spell of passing, the ball found its way to Cammy Ballantyne inside the box and he was brought to the ground by Scullion. Referee Napier immediately pointed to the spot and up stepped LEWIS MILNE to calmly send Antell the wrong way from the spot.

Six minutes later Milne almost had his hat trick when he got on the end of a near post Templeman cross but the ball was again blocked by the Edinburgh City rear-guard.

The visitors had a rare attack in the 32nd minute when Craig Thomson let fly from the edge of the box but his shot went well over the crossbar.

With five minutes of the first half remaining Ashley Grimes was booked for appearing to kick Allan Fleming when he gathered the ball on the touchline.

With 53 minutes gone Ballantyne won a corner kick which was taken by Milne. His corner found the head of Templeman who headed over the crossbar.

Two minutes later Michael Bolochoweckyj became the only Montrose player to be booked for a late tackle on Taylor.

The visitors then made a double switch with John Dunn and Scott Shepherd coming on in place of Taylor and Farid El Alagui.

Time was up for Chris Templeman in the 56th minute and he was replaced by Gary Fraser.

Five minutes later Terry Masson came on for the home side in place of Liam Callaghan to shore up the midfield.

Edinburgh City almost pulled a goal back shortly afterwards when Marc Laird was allowed to get over a cross from the left but Thomson’s diving header went wide of the post.

In the 63rd minute Ballantyne won Montrose a free kick near the stand side corner flag. The ball bounced about the area before finally going out for a byeline.

Two minutes later Lewis Milne had a chance to complete his hat trick when he received a through ball from Rennie but his shot was this time blocked.

Two goal Lewis Milne was replaced with fifteen minutes remaining with Paul Watson coming on in his place.

With 80 minutes gone Rennie won the Gable Endies a free kick which was taken by Masson the ball found its way onto the head of the visitors Gareth Rodger who almost headed into his own net.

With five minutes remaining Gary Fraser found himself through on goal before being man handled to the ground by Jesus Garcia Tena who was quite rightly booked by referee Napier.

Before Montrose could take the free kick the visitors Craig Thomson was booked for dissent.

The bookings continued for the visiting side and Pat Scullion was next to be shown yellow again for dissent.

Matty Allan, on his return to the side tried to get on the score sheet but in the final minute but his low 25 yarder was well saved by Antell.

In the second minute of stoppage time Montrose grabbed a deserved third goal. Ballantyne was hauled to the ground on the edge of the box and up stepped MARTIN RENNIE to curl a beauty of a free kick into the net with what was the final kick of the match. A great way to end the match for the youngster making his full debut for the club.
