ONCE again this season Montrose have been left angry at refereeing decisions which have gone against them.
During their 3-2 defeat at the hands of Elgin on Saturday questions were raised over some of the decisions made by match officials.
Manager Ray Farningham said: “I was disappointed with the decisions that went against us. Their second goal was offside then, at the third, the free-kick went the other way when I thought it should have been for us.
“They scored from the free-kick although we could have defended it better.
“The Boyle offside goal was also questionable.”
That said, Farningham added: “We have got to defend better than we did, we have given away poor goals all season and that is down to our own mistakes.”
Despite the score-line there were some positives to take away from the game. Farningham said: “Terry has been one of our most consistent players this season and that was a tremendous goal on Saturday.
“There was Martin Boyle’s goal too - they were both good goals.”
As the Review went to press on Tuesday, Montrose were preparing to face Queen’s Park at Links Park on Tuesday evening. Before the game Farningham said: “We will go in and try to win and hope that we can take on board the mistakes we have made previously and do something about them.
“One of the problems with having a small squad is that we can move around our forwards and midfielders but we don’t have enough defenders to do that and the defence is where our problem is.”
Looking towards the weekend Montrose will face Clyde at Broadwood on Saturday afternoon and Farningham is optimistic. He said: “Depending on the result tonight we have the opportunity to go above Clyde in the table this weekend.”
Jamie Winter is a doubt for Tuesday’s game and David Dimilta remains injured although he is now in light training.
