Montrose travel west today for the second part of their double-header against Dumbarton.
The Gable Endies enjoyed a successful first match in the Irn-Bru Cup at the C&G Systems Stadium, with Craig Johnston’s only goal of the game firing them into the third round.

“I would obviously be very happy if it’s the same result but it will be another tough challenge for us.
“It is one of the longer journeys through to Dumbarton and not ideal that we have games back to back there.
“However, what I would say is it’s a great pitch and the players like playing on it.
“It’s like a bowling green so it suits us.”
Michael Bolochoweckyj featured in the Irn-Bru game and is back in contention for this league clash, while Matty Allan is ruled out by injury.
