Peterhead 2 - 0 Montrose

Saturday 1st September 2012
R McAllister (52, 72)

Peterhead assume top spot

Peterhead went top of the Irn-Bru Scottish Division Three table after a 2-0 home victory over Montrose.

Rory McAllister was the hero for The Blue Toon, scoring twice to take his tally to five goals for the season.

Chances were few and far between in the first half but McAllister brought the game to life just seven minutes into the second period.

Goalkeeper Mark McCallum found the 25-year-old, who curled an unstoppable shot into the top corner, giving David Crawford in the Montrose goal no chance.

The hosts put the game out of sight 20 minutes later with the same players combining to similar effect.

McAllister latched on to another long goal kick from McCallum before slotting past Crawford with ease from inside the area, to secure another victory.

Jarvie missing for Peterhead

Peterhead will be without goalkeeper Paul Jarvie due to work commitments and on-loan Dundee United stopper Marc McCallum comes in as his replacement.

Striker David Ross continues to be absent with his broken collarbone.

Manager Jim McInally is keen for his side to build on last weekend's success over Queens Park.

"The win last week took a long time to come and people were getting unsettled," McInally said. "As Queens Park showed in midweek against Dundee they are a good side, so I am delighted with the three points from Rory McAllister's late penalty.

"If we can get another win by defeating Montrose our players will hopefully start believing in themselves a bit more."

Montrose head to Peterhead with a new-look side following the arrival of defender Phil McGuire from Lochee Juniors and Ricky McIntosh's loan move from St Mirren.

Following the club's 3-0 League Cup defeat at Dunfermline in midweek, cup tied duo David Crawford and Leighton McIntosh are also available.

However, Jamie Winter and Paul Watson are ruled out through injury while Jonathan Crawford is a doubt.

Boss Stuart Garden said: "Although we did well at times to contain Dunfermline I was disappointed with the goals we lost. If we defend like that again against Peterhead we will be penalised.

"If we defend well then we have players in our squad that can hurt teams, so it is in our own hands."
