Cove boss Paul Hartley has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Harry Milne (Ankle Surgery) and Jamie Masson (Ankle Injury) are not able to play.
We’ve got the feeling that Montrose may well find it hard to breach the defence of this Cove Rangers lineup who we reckon will be able to grind out a win.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very competitive game with a 0-1 advantage for Cove Rangers at the end of the match.
We’ll see what happens.
