Clyde set­tle for a point in El­gin

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

El­gin City ....... 1 Clyde.............. 1 Clyde re­turned from the most northerly football league ground in Scot­land with a point af­ter an evenly fought 1-1 draw with El­gin.

From the early stages, Scott Fer­gu­son for the Bully Wee was prov­ing a hand­ful up front, but was un­able to turn pos­ses­sion into clear-cut chances.

El­gin’s Daniel Moore was per­form­ing a sim­i­lar role when­ever the home team broke for­ward, and it was from his cor­ner that Daryl McHardy headed El­gin ahead af­ter 13 min­utes.

The much trav­elled Marvin An­drews made his Clyde de­but and was a re­as­sur­ing pres­ence in the Clyde de­fence.

It was his header just over the bar mid­way through the first half that sig­nalled the visi­tors’ in­tent.

Another An­drews header from a cor­ner on the half hour caused chaos in the El­gin de­fence, and he was first to the goal­mouth scram­ble to make it 1-1.

With the slope in their favour in the sec­ond half, Daniel Moore’s in­dus­try on the wing meant El­gin looked most likely to score.

But Clyde skip­per Mark McLaugh­lin drew a fine one­handed save from Stewart Black in the El­gin goal.

pass-back put McGowan through and the Lang keeper was forced to make a fine block.

Cam­bus­lang showed some im­prove­ment af­ter the break and be­gan to threaten the home goal.

A shot on the turn from David­son skimmed the bar, then a Kil­martin free-kick fol­lowed the same route.

Cam­bus­lang had a long spell of pres­sure and for 10 min­utes Ash­field were pinned back in their own half. How­ever, it all came to noth­ing and Ash­field hit the Lang with the per­fect sucker punch.

A long clear­ance found Rangers de­fend­ers ab­sent and Moulan­gou strode on to lash the ball into the net.

A fine run and shot by Kil­martin at last gave the Lang fans some­thing to cheer but just two min­utes later Moulan­gou re­peated the act at the other end to com­plete his hat trick.

Kil­martin then notched his sec­ond af­ter be­ing set up by MacLeod.

Cam­bus­lang: Jones, Chalmers, Scan­lon, New­man, Welsh, McBeth, S. David­son, R. David­son, Kil­martin, Faulds, MacLeod. Subs: Caird, Hud­son, McS­tay, Lynch.

De­but Marvin An­drews
