Montrose 1 Dumbarton 0

Montrose picked up a second consecutive league win to move up to sixth in the league.

The Gable Endies, having worked hard to come from behind to win at Brechin the previous week, maintained their work rate against Dumbarton, who were looking to pick up a second win under new boss Jim Duffy.

The two sides largely cancelled each other out for much of the first half, and neither side created many clear-cut chances until Iain Russell’s deflect shot was held by Montrose goalkeeper Jordan Millar in the 24th minute. Millar was called into action again a minute later, holding Calum Gallagher’s shot from Bobby Barr’s cross.

Dumbarton continued to pile on the pressure, and could have taken the lead in the 27th minute when Sean Dillon mistimed a challenge, allowing the ball to fall to Russell, but his shot was saved by Millar.

Montrose’s first notable chance came in the 35th minute when Craig Johnston’s shot was blocked. The rebound spiralled into the air, and Martin Rennie found himself in enough space to attempt an overhead kick, which flew just wide of the target.

As the first half drew to a close, Barr headed straight at Millar, and Montrose substitute Graham Webster powered down the right before sending a shot across the face of goal.

The second half almost started in disastrous fashion for Montrose, Dillon overhitting a passback to Millar, the keeper scrambling back to clear the ball away from goal.

Ross Perry also came close for Dumbarton, having a header held by Millar from a corner, while at the other end, Johnston’s low shot was held by Chris Smith in the Dumbarton goal.

The deadlock was finally broken in the 53rd minute. Andrew Steeves powered down the left wing and into the box, reaching the bye-line and sending a cross to the far side of the box, where GRAHAM WEBSTER was on hand to lash a shot back across goal and into Smith’s net.

Hutton was the first Dumbarton player to try to find an equaliser, shooting over from 30 yards out.

Steeves came close to adding to the scoresheet in the 68th minute, his cross dropping just over Smith’s crossbar.

Both sides continued to attack as the match entered its final quarter hour, Dumbarton substitute Scott Allardice heading at Millar and Rennie firing a free kick wide of the post.

Former Montrose right back Cammy Ballantyne sent a cross onto the top of Millar’s goal in the 84th minute, and Hutton shot over from the edge of the box two minutes later.

Patrick Cregg could have put the result beyond doubt in the 90th minute when he collected Euan Henderson’s square ball, but his shot was saved by Smith.
