Clyde lotto

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

David Marsh’s first half goal en­sured Clyde climbed to third in the Lad­brokes League Two ta­ble af­ter they held out for an im­por­tant vic­tory over El­gin City.

Barry Fer­gu­son named the same start­ing line-up that de­feated East Stir­ling last week, with Michael Bolo­choweckyj re­turn­ing to take a slot on the bench.

Clyde came ag­o­nis­ingly close to open­ing the scor­ing in­side the first five min­utes when Scott Lin­ton’s 25 yard shot crashed off the bar and, from the re­bound, Sean Hig­gins’header bounced just wide of the post.

Af­ter 15 min­utes The Bully Wee scored. Lin­ton’s long throw into the box wasn’t fully dealt with by the El­gin de­fence and Mark McLaugh­lin did well to beat the away‘keeper to the ball and set up Marsh who made no mis­take from close range.

As both teams looked to at­tack when­ever pos­si­ble, Dy­lan Eas­ton then forced Marc Wa­ters into a save, be­fore Lin­ton’s header was kept out by Mark Hurst at the other end.

Early in the se­cond half, Marsh could have got an­other goal to his name but he didn’t make a clean con­nec­tion with the ball af­ter it broke to him in­side the vis­i­tor’s penalty box.

In gen­eral, The Bully Wee had looked strong de­fen­sively but af­ter 78 min­utes a cross from the left led to Chris Smith col­lid­ing with Daryl McHardy and the ref­eree quickly pointed to the spot.

How­ever, Wa­ters pulled off a fine stop low to his right to deny Craig Gunn yet an­other goal from a penalty kick. Clyde FC Lot­tery Draw March 9. 11 13 18 25 There was no jack­pot win­ner but four share the £250 se­cond prize. Jack­pot in­creases £18,500.00
