Hegarty: It’s not time for panic in search of first Montrose win

It’s not time to be manning the panic stations just yet, but Paul Hegarty admits he wants Montrose to grab their first league win as soon as possible.

The Gable Endies have just two points from their opening four games in League Two, leaving them cut adrift already alongside newly-promoted Edinburgh City.

However, Hegarty stressed that while he’s well aware how important it is to start winning games as early as possible, the management and players aren’t yet in crisis mode with so much football still to play.

The gaffer also believes the club’s deadline day additions can only have a positive effect on the club’s fortunes.

Hegarty said: “We’ve made a few additions to the squad, obviously. We’ve brought in the likes of Jonny Court, Scott Hynd and so on, then Iain Campbell is hopefully going to continue with us until January.

“We’re hoping they prove to be effective additions to the club.

“Gary Fraser and Graham Webster didn’t train last week due to injuries but they’ll hopefully be back this week, which will be a bonus.

“Callum MacDonald and Iain Campbell have tons of experience that they bring with us to add to the legs and youthfulness of the other new signings. It also gives the players already there a bit of a jolt and it freshens things up. We’ve sent some younger players out on loan to the juniors because they need game time, and it’s only a good thing for them.

“You want to get a win as soon as possible. In the games we’ve played so far, we have played well but it’s poor decision-making on our point that means we haven’t been able to get a win. We’re not despondent but we’d certainly like to get the win under our belts.”
