Martin on the Boyle

Teenage striker Martin Boyle struck a hat-trick to help Montrose leapfrog Clyde into eighth with a 5-0 victory.

Boyle took his tally to seven in this last four games and 22 for the season with Terry Masson and Alan Campbell also on target.

The visitors nearly got an opening goal inside the first 10 minutes but goalkeeper Sandy Wood denied Jason Marr's close-range effort with his feet.

And it was the Gable Endies who broke the deadlock through Boyle.

Steven McNalley's left-wing cross was volleyed in emphatically by the in-form forward after 20 minutes.

Boyle's second, after 41 minutes, was a fine curling effort which nestled into the bottom corner.

The game was decided in Montrose's favour when Masson lashed in a left-foot volley nine minutes after the break.

Campbell headed Sean Crighton's cross in after 72 minutes before Boyle claimed the match ball three minutes later with a header.

It's not the End for Farningham

Montrose manager Ray Farningham will be in charge against Clyde despite speculation linking him with the assistant manager's job at Dundee.

The Links Park boss welcomes back David McGowan and David Dimilta from injury to give him a full squad to choose from for the first time this season.

Farningham said: "The talk of a job with Dundee is just talk and I am only concentrating on Montrose at the moment.

"It is a bit ironic that we have a full squad now that we are on game 36, but better late than never.

"I am looking for us to finish above Clyde in the table and the best way to do that is by beating them so there is something at stake in this game."

Clyde welcome back Jack Sloss to their squad as they look to complete a five-game unbeaten run.

Iain Gray also returns after a ban but the Bully Wee will be without the suspended John Neill and the injured trio of Kieran Brannan, Brian McQueen and Daniel Fitzpatrick.

Captain Paul Hay faces a fitness test, leaving Broadwood boss Jim Duffy to say: "We have competed really well in our recent games and I am looking for more of the same at Links Park.

"We want to finish on the high of a good run of games without getting beat and having kept hold of eighth place in the table so there will be a bit of an edge to this game."
