History of the Montrose v Annan Athletic fixture

Montrose prepare to entertain Annan Athletic at Links Park Ground on Saturday afternoon, hoping to break their duck against the visitors. Though past meetings have resulted in more draws than losses for Gable Endies.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Links Park Ground was earlier this season, when they played out a goalless draw in a Scottish Division Three match.
