CLYDE ...... 3 EAST STIR­LING .....1

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

Clyde boss Barry Fer­gu­son in­sisted his side were good value for their 3-1 win against East Stir­ling on Satur­day.

Clyde took the early ini­tia­tive and cre­ated nu­mer­ous chances with­out find­ing the net.

How­ever, an open­ing goal duly ar­rived af­ter 53 min­utes, when Sean Higgins took ad­van­tage of a loose ball in the penalty box and neatly placed a shot past Barnard and into the bot­tom cor­ner of the net.

The lead was dou­bled two min­utes later. Fol­low­ing good play on the right, Archie Camp­bell’s low cross ran across the front of goal but Scott Lin­ton did well to come in at the back post and find the net from a tight an­gle, with the help of a touch from an East Stir­ling de­fender.

The Shire pulled a goal back af­ter 72 min­utes when Nathan Shep­herd scored with a low shot, af­ter a cor­ner was only par­tially cleared by the Clyde de­fence.

Sec­onds later, the points were made safe when Clyde were awarded a free-kick at the edge of the box and Sean Higgins con­verted with a su­perb strike into the top cor­ner. Clyde boss Barry Fer­gu­son said af­ter the game: “The last home game we dom­i­nated Queen’s Park and it was a car­bon copy of that game. We were the stronger team, the bet­ter team. We took our foot off the gas at 2-0, I don’t know why, and they got a goal back. They’re good boys but they’ve still got a lot of things they need to work on.” Clyde: Gib­son, Mitchell, Bolo­choweckyj, Marsh, Lin­ton, McLaugh­lin, Smith, Fer­gu­son (Bris­bane 76), Higgins, Camp­bell (Ly­nass 85), Gormley (McQueen 76)
