Bully Wee edge it at An­nan

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

An­nan ................... 2 Clyde..................... 3 and Scott McLaugh­lin dou­bled their lead af­ter 18 min­utes.

The mid­fielder picked up the ball just out­side the box and curled a shot into the cor­ner of the net.

How­ever, An­nan equalised soon af­ter. David Marsh was pe­nalised for a foul at the edge of the box and Peter Weather­son stepped up to put the ball over the wall and into the bot­tom cor­ner of John Gib­son’s goal.

Weather­son was soon in­volved again, but this time in a neg­a­tive way as ref­eree Colin Steven showed him a red card, af­ter he ap­peared to catch Bolo­choweckyj in the face with his arm.

Just af­ter the hour mark, a spell of pres­sure from The Bully Wee led to a cru­cial third goal.

A third cor­ner in quick suc­ces­sion was sent into the box by McLaugh­lin, and Marsh met it at the near post, glanc­ing a header past Jor­dan Hart.

An­nan rarely threat­ened the Clyde goal in the sec­ond half, but sub­sti­tute Smart Osadolar came close with a header be­fore grab­bing a con­so­la­tion goal deep into in­jury time.

Hav­ing a ball Clyde and An­nan Clyde moved to within a point of Scot­tish League Two lead­ers An­nan Ath­letic with vic­tory at Gal­a­bank.

The Bully Wee started strongly and took the lead af­ter just five min­utes.

Scott Lin­ton’s long throw into the box caused the home de­fence prob­lems and that gave him time to chase his own de­liv­ery, ar­rive in the box and smash the loose ball home. Clyde con­tin­ued to look dan­ger­ous
