Rare success for Montrose

Montrose won their first league match in eight attempts, beating Clyde 2-1.

Clyde looked the more likely to open the scoring but Kieran Brannan could only curl into the arms of Michael Andrews.

But it was Montrose who broke the deadlock after the break, as Douglas Cameron curled a free-kick into the bottom corner with his side's first shot of the match.

The visitors lost their lead to an own goal just five minutes later, however, when Sean Crighton diverted a header past his own keeper.

But parity didn't last long, and in the 64th minute Cameron's long ball found Martin Boyle in the box, who controlled well before rifling past Nicholas Feely for the winner.

Knock could rule Neill out

John Neill is an injury concern for Clyde ahead of the visit of Montrose.

Neill is struggling for fitness after sustaining a knock during the 1-1 draw with Elgin in midweek.

Fellow midfielders Jack Sloss and Daniel Fitzpatrick could also miss out through injury for the Bully Wee, while goalkeeper David Crawford and defender Jason Marr also have niggles.

Ahead of the game Broadwood boss Jim Duffy said: "Our players worked really hard to get a deserved point up at Elgin and we will need that approach again against Montrose.

"We have not won in a few games and it would be great to put that right, get the three points and open up a bigger gap on our opponents and get closer to the sides in mid-table."

Montrose have mounting concerns regarding both injuries and suspensions.

Paul Lunan and Jamie Winter are suspended while defender Alan Campbell (broken finger) and winger David Di Milta (ankle) are also still out.

Gable Endies manager Ray Farningham has told his players that they will need to work really hard to win.

"Clyde got a great result in midweek against an Elgin team that are bang in form. Jim Duffy has his players working really hard and we will need to match that to take the three points up the road with us," said Farningham.

"We will also need to work hard to compensate for Paul (Lunan) missing as he was great in defence in midweek before he was sent off."
