Montrose 2 Forfar Athletic 2

Coming from two down you would take a point all day long, but Johnston should have given us all three when he squandered a great chance late on.

The visitors were the better team early on with Hilson driving a 35 yard free kick low but past the far post. The striker was at it again soon after when an Easton dribble and cut back found him, but this time he blasted over.

The first goal came when Easton was given too much time across the face of the box and he cleverly slid in JAMIE BAIN whose toe poke clipped the inside of the outrushing Millar’s heal into the net.

The advantage was doubled after 20 mins when a great run from half way by Baird was eventually stopped on the byline by Webster, but with his clearance finding Harrington on the edge of the box, the youngster was slack with his pass gifting a chance to MARK HILL who fired past a helpless Millar.

The game was almost put to bed when Hilson lifted his shot from the edge of the area but Millar made a good full length catch.

We got a foothold back in the match after half an hour when after good build up play, Masson’s cross found GRAHAM WEBSTER whose deflected shot seemed to take an age to loop over McCallum into the net.

The second half was an even contest for the first 10 mins before Baird showed good footwork to create an opening but his 25 yard drive went just over.

After that we had the better of the chances with Webster glancing a header just wide of the far post from a Campbell corner.

Steeves, who became more of a threat as the game progressed had a good run to the line and cut back for Masson, but his curling effort was not high enough to trouble the keeper.

Harrington, looking to atone for his earlier mistake, burst forward and set up his Aberdeen team mate Antoniazzi, whose shot was deflected for a corner.

The game should have been level when from another great Steeves cross, but Rennie failed to make connect with his head from 6 yards out.

Cavanagh then came on the scene with first a chest and volley from distance that went well over, but the substitute would have more luck minutes later.

Steeves cross found Masson on the edge who swung his left foot at the ball but completely missed, pirouetting in the process but quickly reacting to set up DANNY CAVANAGH who buried his shot from 20 yards in the opposite corner.

The game was now on a knife edge with both teams looking for a winner and when Millar came and punched clear a cross, it fell kindly for Baird who volleyed goalward but Millar recovered and reacted instinctively to push the effort round the post.

However, with seconds remaining, the best chance appeared when a long clearance from Millar caught out the Forfar defence and Johnston rounded the keeper but despite taking two or three touches couldn’t find an angle to score and eventually sliced his shot wide when it looked easier to score.

Great recovery boys and we possibly deserved more, but we move on to next week as we finish the first quarter away to Stenhousemuir.
