Montrose 1-0 Queen's Park

Montrose overcame Scottish League Two bottom side Queen's Park courtesy of Paul Watson's goal.

In a scrappy first half, Blair Spittal dragged a shot wide for the visitors at Links Park.

However, after striker Bryan Deasley hit the frame of the Spiders' goal, Montrose moved ahead when Watson finished with his left foot.

Alan Campbell's shot was cleared off the line, denying Queen's Park an equaliser.
