Around the grounds

THIRD Division side Montrose had reason to celebrate on Saturday after holding league leaders Rangers to a draw at Ibrox (writes Sarah McLean).

Montrose had given the home side no small amount of trouble over the 90 minutes, despite losing a goal just before half time.

And they were duly rewarded when David Gray brought it equal with a stunning goal in the final gasps of the game.

It might not have been three points but it felt like a victory when the visitors left the pitch to applause from both sets of fans.

Montrose will now be looking to keep the momentum going when they face East Stirlingshire at Links Park this weekend.

In the Second Division it was a day to forget for Dick Campbell’s Forfar Athletic.

Despite hoping for three points that would send them to this weekend’s Scottish Cup clash with Falkirk on a high, Forfar only managed to find the net once during the 3-1 defeat to Arbroath.

Arbroath have now leapfrogged the Loons in the league to push them down to fifth place.

On Saturday it’s league action for Arbroath when they travel to Ochilview to face Stenhousemuir.

As mentioned, Forfar Athletic will travel to Falkirk for the fifth round of the Scottish Cup.

As the only part-time club in the final 16, the Loons are hoping for a major upset but with Falkirk going in on the back of a 4-3 win over Airdrie United they have their work cut out for them.

Brechin City will be hoping to actually get a game on Saturday after being plagued with postponements over the period of bad weather.

The Glebe Park side have not seen league action since drawing 2-2 with East Fife on January 12. On Saturday they were due to face league leaders Queen of the South at home but the snowy weather made sure that didn’t happen.

This weekend Brechin will face Ayr United at Somerset Park.
