Sore de­feat for Spi­ders

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

Queen’s Park .. 0 Mon­trose ........ 1 Queen’s Park missed the chance to go top of the Lad­brokes Scot­tish League Two ta­ble af­ter a nar­row de­feat to Mon­trose at Ham­p­den.

The Spi­ders were des­per­ately un­lucky af­ter 20 min­utes when Ryan McGeever got his head to Jamie McKer­non’s cor­ner.

Un­for t u nat e l y , w i t h the keeper well beaten, Scott John­ston popped up ac­ro­bat­i­cally on the line to hook the ball clear. Five min­utes later and Gus MacPher­son’s side came close once more.

Ciaran McElroy switched the ball to Chris Dug­gan who shot hard and low, but home goal­keeper Jor­dan Mil­lar did well to deny him with his legs.

In the 34th minute, Dug­gan was in on goal again but saw his shot come off the in­side of the post.

De­spite Queen’s Park’s first- half dom­i­na­tion, it was Mon­trose who opened the scor­ing in the sec­ond half.

A se­ries of heavy touches in the home de­fence gifted pos­ses­sion to Ross Camp­bell.

Graham Web­ster then took over and shot from dis­tance, beat­ing Wil­lie Muir low to his right.

In the dy­ing sec­onds, Dug­gan had another ef­fort tipped over be­fore yet another goal-bound ef­fort was bril­liantly kept out by a fly­ing save from Mil­lar.

The de­feat leaves the Spi­ders sit­ting in third place, two points be­hind lead­ers An­nan Ath­letic.

Close thing Queen’s Park put pres­sure on Mon­trose at a cor­ner
