Boss has praise for Clyde’s cup re­sults

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

Clyde boss Jim Chap­man praised his side’s win­ning men­tal­ity as they came from be­hind against higher league op­po­si­tion for the sec­ond match in a row to keep them in cup con­tention.

Craig Barr opened for Dum­bar­ton but Dar­ren Miller can­celled it out with a bril­liant ef­fort be­fore Max Wright nod­ded in a close range header.

Chap­man said: “We want to get into a win­ning habit and it’s just a men­tal­ity thing as it’s still a new squad but there’s a lot of work ahead of us.

“I’m re­ally pleased for them and if the play­ers keep show­ing that at­ti­tude then we’ll have a good sea­son as sport is a com­pe­ti­tion and it’s about win­ning and los­ing and we’ll keep pro­gress­ing.”

A slow start saw it take eight min­utes for the first shot on goal as Chris John­ston played in Alis­tair Roy who skinned Jack Bres­lin and forced a good save from Blair Cur­rie.

Hearts loa­nee Alis­tair Roy was guilty of miss­ing a sit­ter when Chris McLaugh­lin whipped in a cross from the left that evaded Cur­rie and fell to the young striker but his touch bounced it

Tus­sle Clyde’s McNiff holds off Roy over the bar when it was eas­ier to score.

The Sons even­tu­ally took the lead on 32 min­utes as Clyde ig­nored David Wil­son’s short cor­ner to John­ston and he crossed for Barr to nod off the bar and go in through the legs of Bres­lin.

The hosts drew level af­ter some magic from Miller. Scott Gal­lacher par­ried his ini­tial cor­ner back to him and he tooke aim and looped the ball into the postage stamp cor­ner over the stranded keeper. Miller turned provider when his drilled croner was headed by Martin McNiff in the di­rec­tion of Wright and the lit­tle winger headed the ball home on 67 min­utes.

Sons gaffer Ste­vie Aitken lamented: “It was a game that we looked in to­tal con­trol of and for it to end in a de­feat is a big dis­ap­point­ment.”
