Match Preview

Rattray out for Red Lichties Arbroath host local rivals Montrose looking for the three points that could seal the title, the first honour in their 133-year history. They will be without defender Alan Rattray but player-boss Paul Sheerin is available after suspension and captain Stuart Malcolm is included after injury for a contest that is expected to draw a bumper crowd. Sheerin said: "This is a massive game for everyone at the club and we will go out looking for the win and hoping that other results go in our favour. "Montrose are coming here in good form and they will be desperate to stop us winning anything so we need to be ready for that. "As well as the title there is local pride at stake." Montrose welcome back defender Stephen McInally from suspension for the derby. However, manager Ray Farningham has injury doubts over defenders Gordon Pope and Alan Campbell while striker Martin Boyle has already been ruled out. Farningham said: "Going four games without defeat has given us confidence and that is all that has been missing. We want to build on the momentum we have built up and increase it further between now and the end of the season. "We know what is stake for Arbroath and there will be a great atmosphere at this game and I want us to win to keep our development as a team going."

Match Report

Rovers seal title glory Arbroath sealed the Scottish Third Division title, the first honour in their 133-year history, after an emphatic 4-1 win over local rivals Montrose at Gayfield Park. They took the lead after just five minutes, Steven Doris powering home a penalty after he himself was fouled by Sean Crighton. It was 2-0 a minute before half-time as Josh Falkingham took Keith Gibson's long ball before slotting home from close range. Arbroath's player-boss Paul Sheerin then netted a fitting third after 61 minutes with an easy finish. Terry Masson pulled one back for Montrose 20 minutes from time, volleying home from Christopher Hegarty's cross. But it was the Red Lichties day and they made it 4-1 in the 90th minute, Adam Strachan scoring from inside the box.
