Montrose 0 Kilmarnock 3

Montrose more than matched their Premiership opponents for the first hour. The Gable Endies looked up for the game from the start and they had the ball in the net after just two minutes when Graham Webster headed into the net however the linesman's flag was already up for offside.

On 20 minutes Montrose had another good opportunity when Blair Lyons went on a run but his shot was deflected behind for a corner.

The home side had another chance in 33 minutes when Lyons broke clear on the left and Killie keeper Zack Hemming had to race out of his box to clear the danger.

Killie scored with their first real opportunity after 37 minutes when Kerr McInroy hit a spectacular right foot shot into the net from just outside the box. Minutes later, another attempt by McInroy was well saved by keeper Lennox.

Danny Armstrong of Kilmarnock had another good chance on 64 minutes, cutting inside from the Killie right to shoot narrowly past half-time substitute goalkeeper Ross Matthews' right hand post.

The visitors effectively killed the game on 69 minutes following a wayward Montrose corner which gave the visitors' possession and the ball was played up the visitors' right flank. Under pressure, defender Mark Whatley was short with his pass-back and Armstrong latched onto it and rounded Matthews before shooting into the empty net.

With a two goal cushion Killie took more control of the game and Armstrong almost found the net again when, in an almost identical run to his earlier attempt, he cut in from the right but once again his shot was just wide of Matthews right hand post.

As Montrose pressed forward in the hope of taking something from the game Kille created further chances. Rory McKenzie chipped the ball over Matthews but the ball was cleared, however Oli Shaw scored on time-up when he found himself in the clear in the box from a pass by Waters and he stroked the ball home.

The Mo can take a lot of positives from this display and, if they can keep this form, they will expect to be in contention at the top of League One again this season.
