Arbroath 2 Montrose 2Montrose Football Club and league leaders Arbroath will have it all to do again this coming Saturday after they shared four goals in an end to end William Hill Scottish Cup second round tie at Gayfield Park. The Gable Endies coming from behind twice to grab a deserved second chance.
Arbroath took an early lead at Gayfield before Montrose fought back to equalise, the home side regained the lead before the Gable Endies once again came up with an equaliser through a raking Paul Watson free kick it was no more than they deserved.
Once George Shields men had equalised for a second time it looked like they would go on and win the match and had a great chance to do so in stoppage time only for Crawford in the home goal to deny Stephen Day.
The draw kept up Montrose’s impressive record of never having lost a Scottish Cup tie at Gayfield.
The replay on Saturday will mean that the sides will play each other three times alone in the month of October.
