Action from Penicuik's match against Montrose

Penicuik should have beaten Montrose, keeping the pressure on league leaders Fauldhouse, but failed to produce the goods despite dominating the game.

The opener came in the 10th minute as a McDermott corner was headed home by Ross.

This brought about a response from the home side and Reid’s shot went wide before Millar replaced the injured McCallum.

There were 22 minutes gone when McLeod saved at the feet of Killin after smart interplay between Montgomery and McPartlin set him up.

Penicuik were starting to dominate and create good chances, and the pressure continued to build when Young saw his header cleared off the line from a Gay corner.
