Arthur Paterson for Dick Madden (20)
E Thomson (Referee)
Montrose won by the odd goal in five at Links Park and Bankies suffered the loss of keeper Madden after only 20 minutes. Harry Rutherford put on the keeper's jersey for the rest of the game. Arthur Paterson came on as substitute and celebrated his return to the side by scoring the first goal of the match.
Dick Madden sustained quite a bad shoulder injury after an accidental collision with Livingstone. He had to go to hospital but an x-ray found no broken bones.
Sub Paterson scored one of the best goals seen at Links Park this season after 27 minutes. He took the ball on his own over half the field, shook off all tackles and cracked home a great shot.
Just four minutes later, Moy scored the second which was nearly as good. Russell, who had switched to the right wing found the inside man with so accurate a cross that Moy merely jumped from a standing position to beat page.
Montrose, began to test the replacement goalkeeper with shots from all angles and got their reward just two minutes before the break when Livingstone headed home from a Harris cross.
The forward repeated the trick just seven minutes into the second half to draw the sides level.
Montrose completed the comeback just five minutes later and Livingstone was involved again. He distracted Rutherford as the keeper shaped to save a free kick. The ball ran to kemp who crashed in the winner at the post.
Martin of Montrose and Bankies Baxter were booked.
The club, in general, are feeling rather depressed at the moment for, although they have a pool of sixteen to choose from, they have ben unable to pick the team they want because of injury problems.
Manager Jack Steedman said that at present there are six players out of the game. Tommy McGhee who was injured two weeks ago against Albion Rovers is happily responding to treatment and might make the side to play Queens Park..
Eddie Rutherford, who has not played for Bankies in the league since he signed early in the season because of cartilage trouble, is now doing light training and will probably be in the side in a few weeks time.
Bankies had trouble fielding a team against Montrose because John Boyd had also called of with tonsillitis. And, now with Dick Madden injured the club are steeping up the search for a replacement for the next game against Queens Park.
