Montrose V Clyde at Links Park Stadium - Match Preview

Morton gives Montrose lift

Montrose will be boosted by the return of Scott Morton as they bid to keep hold of a play-off spot by defeating visitors Clyde.

Morton is available again after a combination of neck and back injuries kept him out for three weeks.

Defender Paul Lunan is still not ready to return after an ankle problem, Jamie Winter is doubtful with a hamstring strain and Craig McLeish is struggling with a back injury.

Manager Stuart Garden said: "The games we have had with Clyde this season have been really tight affairs, settled by the odd goal and I do not think this game will be much different.

"I'm looking for us to bounce back after losing at Annan and play as well as we did at Peterhead a fortnight ago."

Clyde will be without new loan signing Kevin Nicol after the Dumbarton man picked up a hamstring problem in his first game for the Bully Wee in their win over Stirling last weekend.

John Neil also misses out due to a chest infection, while manager Jim Duffy is looking for his men to reproduce one of their best displays of the season.

Duffy said: "When we went to Links Park in August we started slowly and went two goals down, but we recovered and won 3-2 with a great display.

"It would be great to put in the second-half performance we put in that day for the full 90 minutes and follow up our win over Stirling with another success."
