Arbroath v Heart of Midlothian KO 19:45 23/10

Arbroath 3 – 1 Montrose




Arbroath 3 – 1 Montrose

Arbroath kept up their fine start to Group D by claiming their 2nd win in a week to lead the group with 6 points.

It was Montrose who opened the scoring in the 10th minute with Graham Webster with a spectacular goal to give the away side the lead.

However Gavin Swankie who put in a man of the match performance soon equalised carefully directing his header into the net from a Jason Thomson cross in the 26th minute.

Jason Thomson who also was having an impressive game headed in a Gavin Swankie free kick in the 43rd minute rising high and unmarked and made no mistake.

Into the second half and substitute Luke Donnelly was unlucky when he had a shot cleared off the line before Bobby Linn struck the post in the 85th minute.

However a Bobby Linn corner kick was fed into the path of Thomas O’Brien by Dale Hilson and the Arbroath skipper secured the win with a very cheeky lob to make it 3-1!

Two wins out of Two and the Lichties lead Group D with maximum points however face a very hard journey and match against Ross County on Tuesday night up in Dingwall.
