Montrose 1 - 1 Queen's Park

Saturday 17th November 2012
L Young (1)P Gallacher (60)

Montrose held at home

Lloyd Young scored in the first minute of the game as Montrose drew 1-1 with Queen's Park at Links Park.

The hosts stormed into the lead after just 34 seconds when Young's sensational 18-yard strike found the top corner of Blair Lochhead's net.

Stunned by being a goal down so early in the match, the visitors struggled to get a hold on the game until the second half.

Queen's Park took the early initiative in the second period and hit back through Paul Gallacher in the 60th minute when he curled the ball into the top corner from 20 yards out to draw his side level.

Both teams pushed for a winner but had to settle for a point apiece.

Three back for Montrose

Montrose welcome back three players from suspension against Queen's Park.

Goalkeeper Sandy Wood is available along with full-back Stephen McNally and the versatile Terry Masson.

Manager Stuart Garden also has no injury worries to report.

Garden said: "We have two home games in a row and getting good results in them could really make a difference in terms of our league position.

"We want to establish a good run of results and two wins and a draw is not a bad start but I want more.

"They will be looking to bounce back from a couple of disappointing results so it will be tough."

Queen's Park travel on a disappointing run of only one win in eight games.

They will give a start to goalkeeper Blair Lochhead for the first time as Neil Parry is suspended.

Youth-team keeper Cameron Sinclair will provide cover for Lochhead while the Hampden side are also missing the banned Jamie Brough and injured David Anderson.

Head coach Gardner Speirs said: "As well as Blair coming in I will look to freshen a few things up after a disappointing run of results.

"It is always good to get the ball out and play again when you have not been at your best.

"We are not far away from what we need to produce and if we show a touch more finesse we will do okay."
