Elgin City 0-1 Montrose

Paul Watson was the Montrose hero as they came through a difficult fixture with a 1-0 win at Elgin.

A battle of two mid-table sides was settled 20 minutes from time when the defender ventured forward for a corner.

Elgin failed to clear the first ball and Watson picked up the pieces with a fine strike into the bottom corner.

Montrose had the better of a fractious match punctuated by nine bookings, with Garry Wood, Brian Cameron, Steven Robb and Stephen Day all going close.
