Hide Match Report

Clyde hoped the home debut of Jorg Albertz would provide a much-needed home spark against a Queen's team flying high.

The visitor's would be first to threaten when the deadly paring of O'Connor and Dobbie would see the former meet O'Connor's flick on with a looping 20 yard volley that Hutton initially palmed into the air before gleefully catching at the second attempt.

Clyde would hit back, and were very unlucky to see McSwegan's shot on the turn fly inches past wit Macdonald well beaten.

Despite handling the duo quite well for the first quarter of the game, defensive errors would see the game over before half time.

Queens's first goal came when O'Connor's flick saw Dobbie nip in front of the static Bestvina, before finding the corner expertly.

Clyde tried to hit back instantly when Albertz played a quick free kick to the on rushing Gibson, but his powerful drive was beaten away by MacDonald.

Moments later and Clyde were two down and again, the goal was self-inflicted. A hopeful lob over the top by Dobbie saw McGregor head weakly back towards goal, Burns nipped in and was felled by Hutton for a penalty. Tosh would make no mistake.

Arbuckle was introduced for McSwegan at half time in an effort to change things.

5 minutes into the half and Clyde almost forged a way back ton the game. A lovely through pass by Albertz found MacLennan in the box, but the midfielder was clumsy with his touch and inadvertently pushed it in the direction of McGowan in good position, but the shot, although well hit, was straight at MacDonald and the chance was lost.

The game would be lost soon after, when a hopeful punt up the park saw the pacey Dobie sprint clear, round Hutton, before cutting inside Bestvina to slot home.

Clyde would get a goal back that they scarcely deserved when Masterton stroked home a penalty for an infringement that only the referee seemed to see.

2 minutes from time and a more accurate score line was reflected when the unfortunate Bestvina could only blast in to his own net when trying to clear.
