Montrose 1-1 Annan Athletic- Match Report

Winter screamer warms up clash

Jamie Winter scored an absolute screamer to light up 10-man Montrose's 1-1 draw with Annan in the Third Division.

In a drab first half with few chances, Montrose's Winter sent promotion-chasing Annan a warning when he tried a speculative effort from 30 yards out in the 20th minute.

Winter's next effort left Annan stunned as with half-time looming, the defence backed off and he unleashed an unstoppable effort from 35 yards out to leave goalkeeper Alex Mitchell floundering.

Without a win in three, the visitors' poor run showed no signs of ending, with a tame effort from defender Bryan Gilfillan in the 55th minute their only notable chance.

However, a penalty in the 78th minute presented a chance for redemption when Douglas Cameron fouled Jack Steele and the midfielder saw red for his rash challenge.

Defender Aaron Muirhead coolly planted the resulting spot-kick in the right corner to earn a share of the spoils.
