Ber­wick game cru­cial for Clyde

Defeat leaves Bully Wee on the brink

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

the in­jured Phil John­ston as Clyde made two changes to their line-up on Satur­day.

For­far dom­i­nated the first half and there was lit­tle sur­prise when the Loons took the lead in the 21st minute. Danny Den­holm used his pace to get away from Ewan McNeil at the back post and head home from Jim Lis­ter’s as­sist.

Clyde were re­stricted to long-range ef­forts and Lis­ter could have dou­bled the home side’s lead but he shot wide. Malone then saw his shot saved by Gour­ley.

For­far started the sec­ond half as they ended the first and dou­bled their lead within seven min­utes of the restart. David Cox man­aged to scram­ble the ball over the line to make it 2-0.

With 11 min­utes left For­far made it three when Thomas O’Brien headed home. Den­holm then struck a post.

McNiff, Hig­gins and Good­willie all had late ef­forts as Clyde looked for a con­so­la­tion but to no avail.

McDon­ald said: “You would have liked to think com­ing up here on the back of two vic­to­ries we would be look­ing for­ward to the game, which we were.

“But I have got to give credit to For­far, they were de­cent to­day, got in about us and were an ex­tra yard ahead of us.”
