Hide Match Report

A first half incident in the technical area dominated all the post-match headlines after Referee Craig Thomson was forced to restrain an apparently fuming former Clyde manager and now Hamilton Accies boss Billy Reid.from a confrontation with the current Clyde management team of Graham Roberts and Joe Miller.
With so many ex-Clyde people now employed at every level of the New Douglas Park club this was always going to be a game which had the potential for passions to boil over and that's the way it turned out with one man sent off and six others booked as well as the shenanigans at the side of the pitch.
The referee was required to warn both Billy Reid and Joe Miler about their behaviour but afterwards everyone involved diod their best to restore the good relations which have always existed between the two clubs.

"I was upset when Joe allowed the ball to run through his legs at a throw-in to waste time and told him so," explained Billy Reid. "It was nothing and we shook hands at the end."

Clyde boss Roberts joked: "I thought I was back playing again!" was Graham Roberts light-hearted take on events. "It's all forgotten about and we shook hands."
In the game itself, Clyde went ahead through Alex Williams in the twenty-fourth minute, when he headed in from close range. Clyde remained one up unrtil the seventy-seventh minute when former Clyde favourite Pat Keogh volleyed to equalise for the New Douglas Park team.

Two minutes later, Neil McGregor was then sent off but ten man Clyde held on for the last eleven minutes to earn a point.
