FOLLOWING the Gable Endies’ 0-0 draw against Annan Athletic, boss Stuart Garden says his squad have to keep creating chances.

With the team now sitting eighth in the Third Division it is late mistakes that have seen them fail to capitalise on points up to now.

Garden said: “We dominated the game and should have won, but on the positive side we kept a clean sheet which we haven’t done before this season.

“We must keep creating chances and we will take them eventually. On another day we might have got the bounce of the ball and scored a couple.

“We took the game to them for the majority of the time and our ‘keeper, David Crawford, hardly had a save to make.

“We are still looking for our first league win, but out performances have been good.

“We have done enough to win all three games.”

Following the recent departure of Martin Boyle, Montrose have secured the services of Dundee striker Leighton McIntosh.

The player is hoping that his loan move to Montrose, as part of the transfer deal that took Boyle to Dens Park, will help him develop his game quicker than coming off the bench for the Dark Blues.

The 19-year-old has moved to Links Park on a temporary transfer, initially to January, and he made his debut at Hampden in the 2-2 draw with Queen’s Park. McIntosh said: “The deal was only completed late on Friday night before the Queen’s Park game and I just met everyone before the game on Saturday.

“I need a run of games to progress my career and I was unlikely to get that in the SPL due to the competition for places.

“Being involved in the first team there is great, but playing for 15 minutes here and there was not going to develop me as much as playing 90 minutes every week is.”

He added: “I have been involved in a few Scotland Under-19 games and hopefully playing at Montrose and scoring a few goals for them will keep my name out there.

“I am hoping that this move will allow me to establish myself as a Dundee player when I go back.”

Garden said: “Leighton McIntosh has come in from Dundee. They wanted him to get games so that suits all parties.

“He will continue to train full-time with Dundee and once a week with us.”
