Quintet in contention for Montrose

Montrose add their five transfer deadline day signings to their squad for the visit of Cowdenbeath.

Callum MacDonald, Cammy Ballantyne, David MacKay, Jonny Court and Scott Hynd are all set to feature against the Blue Brazil on Saturday. Elsewhere, Chris Templeman is available after injury but Chris Hegarty remains out with an ankle problem.

Ahead of the match Montrose manager Paul Hegarty said: "Some of the new boys will be involved from the start as they have given us a freshness in training and we will look to take that into this game.

"We are keen to get that first win and hopefully the changes that will be made will help us do that."

Cowdenbeath have Gerry McLauchlan available again after a rib injury and they also add Aaron Murrell, who has joined on loan from Dundee United, but missing from their ranks is the injured Kenny Adamson (back) and Burton O'Brien (jaw).

Blue Brazil boss Liam Fox said: "We know from our last game at Clyde where we need to improve. To go away from home and score three times emphasises how well we are doing going forward however losing five goals means that our defending needs to get a lot better.

"We have spent the last two weeks trying to put things right and this game will be a test of that work."
