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.
