Monifieth returned to winning ways - in their first match after their Scottish Cup exit to Celtic, and following a postponement the week before. 

After a two week lay-off the home side were slow out the blocks and made a sluggish start to this league game. 

A number of good early chances were not taken by Monifieth but crucially, right on the stroke of half-time, McNeill headed home Barr's pinpoint corner.

Gaffer Farnan shuffled the side, as he looked to inject some spark into his team.  Matchett stepped into the defensive midfield role, Westwater slipped back to sweeper and the formation was tweaked to a 3-1-4-2. 

The changes made a difference, and the 14s hold on the game increased. Midway through the half, Hush extended the lead with a great shot into the top corner - the keeper had no chance! 

With Monifieth on top, Campbell added a late third with a tap in from close range.
