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.
10: Bright start
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.
16: GOAL MONTROSE!
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...
