Clyde miss chance to go top
Clyde..................... 1 Arbroath ............... 2 over Annan, with Marvin Andrews and new signing Jordan Kirkpatrick replacing the injured pair of Michael Bolochoweckyj and Sean Higgins.
The opening goal came after eight minutes. Excellent work by Scott McLaughlin led to him rounding the keeper and crossing the ball into the box to give Kirkpatrick an easy chance to score on his debut.
Early in the second half the Red Lichties completely changed the match with two goals inside as many minutes. The first came via a Bobby Linn penalty then Ricky Little blasted the ball home from close range after Marc Waters could not hang on to the ball under pressure.
Barry Ferguson said:“To be honest, they looked tired in the second half. I can’t really criticise because they’ve been excellent over the last six or seven weeks. They were the better team in the first half but they looked leggy after that.
“If we win our five games we’ll win the league, that’s the way we’ve got to look at it.”
off, which keeper Kelly could only palm into the path of Duggan. He gleefully whacked it into the back of the net to level things up at 1-1.
That revitalised the Spiders and they could have taken the lead three minutes later when Duggan and Galt combined well. Galt’s ball ran right across the face of the home goal but there was nobody in red to tuck it away.
Fifteen seconds into the second period Duggan won a free kick in a dangerous position but the delivery from McKernon was overhit and Queen’s failed to test Kelly.
The visitors enjoyed some good moments as the half developed. Although McKernon hit the target twice, Kelly dealt with his efforts without too much trouble.
McKernon then let fly from distance again and this time Kelly had to look lively to tip it over the bar.
The Fifers threw on Nathan Austin for Ross Brown and the home side carved out a couple of chances in quick succession. Wilkie saw a shot deflected wide then overhit a cross from a seriously threatening position.
Queen’s almost snatched the points with four minutes to go as Mitchell crossed and Duggan hooked a volley just wide.

The Bully Wee had a disappointing afternoon as two quick-fire goals in the second half gave the Red Lichties victory at Broadwood.
