Paul Hegarty watched his side continue their perfect home form on Saturday before telling them to start doing the business away from home.

Montrose cruised to an excellent 2-0 win over high-flying Elgin City at Links Park for their third win - and clean sheet - from three home games.

The terrific home form contrasts heavily with the away results though as the Gable Endies have yet to collect a point on their travels, though the side will rightly feel aggrieved not to have taken anything from Annan Athletic or Berwick Rangers.

Hegarty believes they have to take something from Saturday’s trip to Stirling Albion to keep their momentum going.

He said: “We have to get something from Stirling because the away form isn’t good. The players have to take a lot of confidence from what we’re doing at home, if we can take that home form onto the road then we’re confident of taking a result from Stirling on Saturday.

“The players deserved their victory, they deserved the three points. It was a lot of great play and a lot of hard work. They showed great enthusiasm and great application and that’s what got us through the game. To be fair there was good play throughout the 90 minutes. The fans were excellent and that’s what you’re looking for. What we’ve been seeing in the last six weeks is definitely a step in the right direction.

“The home form has been excellent but I’m sure the players feel, same as I do, that we should have picked something up from the Annan and Berwick games. Hopefully we can carry form into Saturday and rectify our away form with a win because our home form has been very good.

“The contribution I’m getting from everybody has been first class. They’ve set a standard, they’ve set their stall out, and they’ve got to continue that. They’re getting a lot of praise and plaudits and rightly so, there’s nothing better than that as a footballer.”
