Gable Endies seal victory

John Crawford's injury-time goal proved to be just enough for Montrose to secure a 3-2 victory at Peterhead in a topsy-turvy Third Division clash.

The Gable Endies went in ahead at the interval courtesy of an own goal from Ryan Strachan, who put through his own net following a goalmouth scramble with 15 minutes gone.

David McGowan extended the visitors' lead with 62 minutes played, curling home left-footed after good work from Terry Masson down the wing.

Strachan went someway to redeeming himself as he drove home from 18 yards to reduce the deficit with 17 minutes remaining.

But after a tense finale, Crawford clipped the ball into the top of the net deep into added time, before Martin Bavidge stabbed home at the other end to reduce the arrears but there was not enough time for the hosts to find a leveller.

Campbell comeback is on

Montrose welcome back defender Alan Campbell to their squad after a groin injury and he looks set to take the place of Paul Lunan, who is unavailable through work commitments, against Peterhead.

Winger David Di Milta is available after a bout of flu, but Stephen McNally is a major doubt for the Gable Endies.

Manager Ray Farningham said: "Peterhead will be on a high after winning at home for the first time this year and they will be out to build on that instantly. We have beaten them before and can take confidence from that."

"Whatever happens I want the Montrose players to go out and give it a real go. That is the approach we used at Annan recently and we were unlucky to lose 2-1."

Peterhead have doubts over midfield pair Paul Watson and Barry Sellars as they look to win two games in a row for the first time this season.

Balmoor manager Jim McInally is tempted to include striker Martin Bavidge from the start against the Links Park side, despite their midweek success over Berwick Rangers.

The Balmoor boss said: "Martin came on and did really well in the game and, whilst I would not want to change a winning team, he has given me a lot to think about.

"If we can win this one then I am hoping that we have finally given ourselves a platform to start putting some wins together and start climbing the table."
