Late penalties have cost Montrose points in both of their Betfred Cup matches so far.
Now manager Paul Hegarty wants his players to get their “just rewards” against Alloa this afternoon.
The Links Park side have run Premiership Ross County and Championship Raith Rovers close, and a failure to take any points hasn’t reflected their contribution to both cup ties, according to Hegarty.
“That’s two penalties in two games that have gone against us,” he said. “And for effort and application, as well as the way we’ve played, the boys haven’t deserved that.
“When you play well and don’t get anything that just adds to your disappointment at the result.
“I’ve had a lot of feedback from people I respect in the game who watched us in midweek and they were saying that we did really well.
“You can have blinkers on as a manager but they see it from a different perspective.
“I now want to see the boys get their just rewards for their performances.”
Chris Templeman is suspended, so that is one enforced change Hegarty will have to make for the Alloa game, and he may also freshen the team up further.
