Match Preview

Montrose's resources are stretched thinly for their clash with Annan with five players - including player-manager Steven Tweed - ruled out. Centre back Tweed is out with a hamstring problem and he will be joined on the sidelines by the suspended Chris Hegarty and the injured Nicky Smith and Jonathan Crawford. On-loan Dundee United midfielder Ross McCord will also miss out after going down with the flu. Tweed said: "We are down to the bare bones for what I envisage will be a really hard game against a side that have strengthened their squad well. If we can build on the performances in the last week against Albion Rovers and then Dunfermline I am sure we will do okay despite our lack of numbers." Annan are without the suspended duo of defender Aaron Muirhead and striker David Cox. The pair will sit out while Galabank boss Harry Cairney is also without midfielder Jordan Halsman who has returned to Motherwell at the end of his loan spell. Cairney is targeting a win at Links Park to keep his men in touch with the promotion chasing pack saying: "A win puts us right in amongst things in the hunt for a play-off place." Gaining full points will not be easy as Cairney is expecting his hosts to be full of confidence despite being knocked out of the Scottish Cup at Dunfermline in midweek. He said: "Montrose have had two great performances against the Pars and so I am expecting them to come out all guns blazing at us."

Match Report

Annan maintain play-off bid Annan Athletic kept up the hunt for a play-off spot with a last minute 1-0 away win at Montrose. Defender Kevin Nielsen headed home the winner in stoppage time to move Athletic up to 24 points and just three shy of the top four. Steven Sloan's deep cross from the right wing was met by Nielsen for his first of the campaign. It was a bitter pill to swallow for Montrose, who had their fair share of chances during the game. Hugh Davidson saw his drilled left-foot volley blocked whilst Dougie Cameron saw his 20-yard effort just fly over the bar. Montrose remain third bottom after the defeat, after East Stirling's game at Arbroath was earlier called off due to the weather.
