Montrose bid to prolong unbeaten run

Paul Lunan is the only absentee as Montrose look to defeat third-placed Peterhead and take their unbeaten run to five games.

The versatile Lunan will miss the encounter due to a groin injury, with the Links Park side knowing exactly which opposition player they have to keep quiet if they are to succeed.

Manager Stuart Garden said: "We played well up at Peterhead in our first meeting and matched them in most areas but Rory McAllister popped up and scored twice to win the game.

"We will have to keep him in check if we are to take anything from this one."

Garden added: "We have hit a good run of form and are in a decent place in the league and I do not want that to end. It will be tough but a win over Peterhead would be great."

Peterhead have ruled out full-back Graeme Sharp with a knee injury as they head to Montrose looking for only their second away win of the season

New signing Ryan McCann is unavailable due to a suspension from his days with Ayr, however goalkeeper Graeme Smith is in line for a debut with assistant manager David Nicholls also hopeful Rory McAllister can play despite a recent illness.

Nicholls said: "Rory had missed training but he returned on Thursday and if he keeps on improving at the rate he has been he will make the game.

"Montrose are on a decent run of form just now so it will be a tough ask to win but the players can battle for a result as they showed against Clyde last weekend (in a 1-0 victory)."
