Clyde comeback ruined by late strike
Annan Athletic ..... 3 Clyde..................... 3
Clyde drew with fellow Ladbrokes League Two promotion hopefuls Annan at Galabank after a second half comeback from the Bully Wee.
Boss Barry Ferguson made two changes following last week’s defeat to East Stirlingshire, Marvin Andrews and Mark McLaughlin replacing Michael Bolochoweckyj and Paul Slane.
The home side took the first half initiative and scored two goals courtesy of Josh Todd.
His first came after he got the better of Mark McLaughlin and placed a shot into the bottom corner and his second after Ross Millen was caught in midfield and he was able to find the space to beat Marc Waters.
Clyde’s lifeline arrived on the hour as Scott Linton’s floated cross to the back post was nodded in by Higgins.
The equaliser came soon after when Scott McLaughlin fired home a loose ball as the Annan defence struggled to cope. A dramatic 12 minute period was then completed as Higgins pressured Kevin Nicoll into a mistake which led to Marsh’s shot being blocked in front of goal, but Higgins managed to get back on the ball and coolly slotted it past Blair Currie.
The Galabankies rarely threatened in the second half, but sub Peter Weatherson was grateful when the referee awarded Annan a free kick 25 yards from goal. With five minutes left, Weatherson stepped up to put a trademark shot over the wall and into the corner of Waters’goal.
