History of the East Stirlingshire v Montrose fixture

Montrose face a trip to East Stirlingshire at Ochilview on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Gable Endies will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2010, with Montrose inflicting a narrow 2 - 3 defeat upon the The Shire in a Scottish Division Three match.
