Montrose 1-0 Dumbarton

SPFL Tier 3, Links Park, 3/11/18.

Well that was the shortest new manager bounce possible.

If anyone thought appointing Jim Duffy would make getting out of the mess we’re in easy this game should have disabused them of the notion. We put in a few reasonable crosses in the first half but apart from a Calum Gallagher sclaff towards the near post and a good save by the keeper from a one-on-one with Iain Russell we were pretty much toothless and didn’t improve in the second.

Not that Montrose were much better. They weren’t any more than competent. But they were competent. And they managed to score even if Chris Smith in goal really didn’t have anything to do. He had no chance with the strike – hit from much the same spot as Calum Gallagher’s effort in the first half – and the only other time he was called on was in the dying embers when we were chasing the game and left ourselves a bit short at the back and he stood up to the shot well.

So, bottom of the league.

The only way is up?

We’ll see.
