Season 2008/2009: Match 20: Montrose v Dumbarton

The world of football seemed to go insane today.

First, Manchester United, they of the unbeatable defence and record-breaking goalkeeper, conceded four goals at home while getting a right royal pumping from Liverpool.

Then, just hours later, Montrose recorded the first home win of Steven Tweed's managerial career.

The winning goal was a peach, a thumper of a volley from coach Jamie McKenzie (playing today as a trialist) flying past the goalkeeper.

Truth be told, Montrose could have had five or six, and again their inability to score more looks like it could haunt them in the future. The closest Dumbarton came to scoring was again a Steven Tweed error, the player-gaffer looking erratic at the back, although less so than in recent weeks.

Montrose didn't seem to miss Keith Gibson, their former captain, who moved to Arbroath at the start of the week, and Jamie Buchan looks an astute replacement wearing the skipper's armband.

A week's a long time in football.

(Oh, and this for The Tomahawk Kid and Big Rab - get it right up you!)
