Gable Endies find home comforts

Montrose recorded their first home league win since early November after a commanding second-half performance earned a 4-0 victory over Clyde.

The hosts came into this fixture with just one win in their previous 10 games, but went ahead six minutes after the interval when David McGowan swept home Martin Boyle's cross.

The lead was doubled two minutes later, Boyle again instrumental, this time setting up Scott Johnston who applied the finish from close range.

Jamie Winter's stunning 25-yard effort extended Ray Farningham's side advantage in the 75th minute before substitute Steven McNalley capped a fine performance for the Gable Endies in the closing stages, crashing home Winter's assist to move Montrose level on points with the visitors.

Wood set to make Montrose debut

Montrose include Garry Wood in their squad to face visitors Clyde after the former Ross County striker agreed terms at Links Park.

Wood will be part of a Gable Endies set-up that also includes full-back Stephen McNally after injury, but centre-half Alan Campbell looks set to continue on the sidelines alongside broken-toe victim Paul Lunan.

Montrose manager Ray Farningham said: "Garry gives us options up front and at the back but it will take a few games before we see him at his best.

"We lost 3-1 to leaders Stranraer last weekend but we played really well. However, we failed to take our chances and were punished severely. I have asked the players that if we get on top against Clyde, make sure we get a goal."

Clyde have lost their strikeforce, with Liam Cusack moving on to Cowdenbeath and Jordan White transferring to Falkirk.

Defender Jason Marr is a fitness doubt for the Bully Wee and midfielder John Sweeney is suspended, however they have brought Dale Fulton in on loan from the Bairns to help manager Jim Duffy recast his side.

Duffy admitted the loss of Cusack and White was tough to take, saying: "It is obviously a blow but good luck to the players. We could not stand in their way and we wish them well.

"It leaves us even shorter of experience up front but we will need to come up with a way to work around it. Bringing Dale in will help as he is a good footballer."
