Clyde win four on the bounce

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports -

Clyde............... 2 East Fife.......... 0 Clyde won their fourth suc­ces­sive vic­tory at home to strug­gling East Fife on Satur­day.

In the 34th minute Fer­gu­son fired in Scott Lin­ton’s lifted cross to the back post for the open­ing goal.

Fer­gu­son scored again six min­utes from time when John Gib­son turned de­fence into at­tack with a swift clear­ance, and the striker con­trolled and dis­patched past Good­fel­low.

Clyde boss Barry Fer­gu­son said: “In the first half we were really good but I was just a bit wor­ried be­cause we didn’t have a game for three weeks and it started to show in signs in the sec­ond half.

“I didn’t want to use it as an ex­cuse but I knew it was go­ing to hap­pen. Three weeks with­out a game is not ideal but they’ve trained really hard .

“It was a good re­sult, good three points and we’ll move on to the next home game.

Clyde host Ar­broath this week­end be­fore a trip to lead­ers An­nan Ath­letic on Box­ing Day.

Fer­gu­son has been linked as the favourite to take over as St Mir­ren boss.

The ex-Scot­land in­ter­na­tional has won praise for his lead­er­ship and could suc­ceed Ian Mur­ray, who quit af­ter the Bud­dies’ loss to Dum­bar­ton on Satur­day.
