Montrose 0 East Fife 4
Montrose Football Club crashed to their heaviest defeat of the season at the hands of East Fife at Links Park on Saturday but remained in third spot in the table some six points behind derby rivals Arbroath.
The defeat came after the Gable Endies had picked up six points on the road in the previous seven days and had looked to keep in the run going in this home fixture.
In the end Montrose gave away two avoidable goals in the space of four first half minutes and never recovered and in the end East Fife, visiting Links Park for the first time since 2008 ran out comfortable winners in a match they didn’t do very much in but didn’t really have to. Four clear cut chances and four goals for the mean from Methil.
Montrose must now look to regain their winning form this coming weekend when they play Arbroath in the second round of the William Hill Scottish Cup.
