The one-time Celtic and Morton signing is enjoying the best scoring run of his career having bagged 13 strikes in 11 competitive outings to date including four in last Saturday's 6-0 Emirates Cup rout of Cambuslang Rangers.
These impressive stats point to it being an act of folly not to pay particular attention to the 22-year-old. However, seasoned campaigner Ferry thinks otherwise.
Ahead of tonight's Lochburn Park finale, he said: "There's no denying the lad Monti is a top-drawer Junior capable of wreaking havoc when he's afforded time and space to play.
"And Clarky and I have seen up close the danger he poses because he was arguably the outstanding player in our Super Premier play-off double header against Pollok at the end of last season when he scored in both games.
"His movement and close control made him a real handful, but we still think it would be a major mistake to deviate from our normal defensive set- up and go down the route of a man-marking role.
"Employing that tactic suggests Pollok are a one-man team and they are anything but, especially with the likes of our own ex-striker Willie Sawyers in their ranks.
"We know only too well that he's a terrific marksman in his own right and he would not need any encouragement to profit from the extra space afforded by us designating someone to stay in close proximity to Monti.
"Not scoring in his last three Pollok outings is a drought for someone like Willie, and it will make him more determined to get back scoring tonight that he's up against his old team-mates as well as playing on his old Maryhill stomping ground."
Pollok have definite non-starters in Darren Brady (knee) and Ryan McCardle (cup-tied), but it is the absence of commanding centre-back Steven Reilly (hamstring) which has caused worry for boss John Richardson.
And a clear sign of his concern came on Friday when he resigned previously transfer-listed Peter McMahon and threw him straight in against Cambuslang Rangers.
He said: "Peter didn't put a foot wrong playing alongside Paul Lovering and he'll certainly feature tonight, as will Ross Dunlop if he recovers from flu.
"For obvious reasons, Carlo will be the first name on the sheet. I just hope he's kept something in reserve for tonight's final."
