0: Almost ready for kick off

East Fife have won one and drawn the other of their opening two games since the return. Stewart Petrie’s side will pose a tough test tonight.

Both sides have made a positive start to the game despite neither being able to really trouble the opposition keeper.

A Murdoch cross just lacked a finish for the Fifers.

13: Half chance for East Fife

Ball breaks to Ross Davidson on the edge of the box but his drive clears the bar.

Webster and Johnston link up with Mo talisman Webster taking control of possession. He fires a decent finish into the Fife net.

20: Chance Montrose

Steeves is the next to try his luck but his effort drops wide. East Fife need to get a grip of things now and get their way back into the game.

25: Penalty shout East Fife

Nathan Austin clattered over inside the box. Looks a stonewaller but ref having none of it.

30: Better stuff from East Fife

After a really ropey spell when they lost the goal, East Fife are beginning to play their way back into the game.

33: Chance Montrose

Really nice delivery into the box by Mo but nobody manages to covert. Huge let off for East Fife.

39: GOAL MONTROSE!!

A real uphill battle for the Fifers now. Andy Steeves had missed a chance a few minutes before but does eventually find the finish to make it 2-0 to Montrose.

41: Chance East Fife

The second goal appears to have rattled the Fifers who go straight up the park and have a couple of shots on goal the Montrose defence block. If they could just get one back before half time...
