Match Preview

One in, one out for Montrose Montrose have one striker leaving and one joining ahead of their match against Elgin. Paul Tosh is moving out on loan to Peterhead, with Sean Pierce arriving from Junior side Port Glasgow. Hugh Davidson and Gordon Pope remain doubts because of injury. Interim manager Ray Farningham said: "Paul is away to be reunited with his former boss John Sheran from his Cove Rangers days and I want to see what Sean can give us. "We have been disappointing in the final third all season and he has the chance to solve that problem for us and get a shot in the Senior game. "I want to see an improvement from the Montrose players as there are contracts for next season up for grabs." Elgin will be without defender Paul Kaczan and striker Brian Cameron for the must-win game. Manager Ross Jack is hoping David Niven gets over the illness bug that has seen him miss training this week and that David Gormley can play despite a troublesome hamstring. Jack, who will be able to take his place in the Links Park technical area alongside his assistant Barry Wilson after appealing against a ban, said: "We have to pick up three points here to remain in the hunt for a play-off place. "A win would hopefully ignite a winning run from us over the remainder of the season. We have six games left and need to win at least five of them to be in with a shout."

Match Report

Crawford strike enough for Montrose Montrose picked up a valuable three points with a 1-0 victory over Elgin. Daryl Nicol came close in the third minute but his 12-yard effort cleared the crossbar. Nicol then set up John Crawford in the 12th minute with a left-wing cross and the midfielder found the bottom corner with a neat header from close range to give Montrose the lead. Elgin goalkeeper John Calder could not hold onto Martin Boyle's shot from outside the area, but the lively Nicol shot wide on the rebound. Steven Edwards' poor tackle just before the break sparked a fracas that resulted in three players being booked. Despite trailing, Elgin only mustered two shots in the second half, including a speculative 30-yard effort from Edwards. Calder was forced to make a succession of late saves as Montrose pushed for a second goal, and twice denied Sean Tierce in stoppage time.
