After a week off due to the international weekend we return to League Two action on Saturday afternoon when we face Montrose at Links Park with a 3 p.m. kick off.
It will be our first trip to the Angus town since August 2012 when we went down 2-1 to the Gable Endies in a League Cup tie with Martin Boyle, now of course with Hibs, and Paul Watson putting the home side two up before Marc McKenzie pulled back a last minute goal.
You however have to go back to April 2009 to find the last time we were on league duty in the Angus town when we went down to a similar score. John Gemmell had given us an early lead but Steven Tweed and Chris Heggarty with a penalty gave the Mo the three points as our Third Division title hopes all but vanished. On a more positive note we had won nine of our previous 11 games with the Angus side with the other two ending in draws.
Back to the current day and Montrose currently sit just below us in the table with two points from their opening four matches. The points came from a home draw against local rivals Arbroath (1-1) and against Annan, also at Links Park, a fortnight ago when they fought back from being two goals down after just seven minutes.
Since that draw with Annan there has been a flurry of transfer activity at Links Park with four player arriving on loan - Scott Hynd from Alloa, Cammy Ballantyne (Dundee United), and both Jonny Court and David McKay from Raith Rovers. Callum McDonald, formerly of Peterhead was also signed after playing in three games as a trialist.
Despite being top away scorers in League Two with six goals we still find ourselves pointless on our travels after our 4-3 and 5-3 defeats at Forfar and Clyde with our only away win so far coming in the Betfred Cup at Arbroath back in July.
New loan signing from Dundee United Aaron Murrell will join the squad for the trip to Links Park.
