Strange occasion in store today, in the context of very difficult weather conditions forecast.
With our local rivals anchored to the foot of the table 7 points adrift from the pack, there's a real risk they'll be the first team relegated under the new pyramid system. I wouldn't really fancy the chances of any Div 2 team in the end of seson against the winners of Brora vs Edinburgh City, the two likeliest contenders form the feeder leagues.
Strong local rivalry provides the vital spark at our level so it may be a sad occasion to see this disappear. Montrose may stage a late rally or win through the playoffs but, if they don;t there are enough strong teams in the Highland League to make getting back difficuly
We are desperate for any win in over 2 months so cannot afford any show of sympathy. But maybe we can show some respect to the club and fans by not milking their parlous situation. But we need to get 100% behind Arbroath
