Recap

A second half goal from top scorer Sean Higgins earned The Bully Wee an important three points at Meadowbank today, in an uninspiring Ladbrokes League 2 encounter.

Barry Ferguson made one change to the starting line-up following the last outing against Berwick Rangers, with David Gormley coming in for Matt Flynn.

In a first half that was lacking in quality on a heavy pitch, there were few clear cut chances at either end. Ousman See had the home side’s best chance, but his attempt to stretch and divert a cross towards goal was unsuccessful and drifted wide.

At the other end, Chris Smith couldn’t get his shot on target after the ball broke to him in the box, before Peter MacDonald fired a free kick over the bar from around 25 yards.

The second half saw some improvement in play, particularly from The Bully Wee, but John Gibson was the first ‘keeper called into action as he reacted well to claw away a potential own goal.

Scott Ferguson and Matt Flynn were introduced form the bench and their fresh legs helped to push Clyde forward in the final quarter of the match, with the winning goal coming in that period. With 70 minutes on the clock, Scott Linton’s return delivery into the box was headed back by Martin McNiff and Higgins was able to squeeze the ball into the bottom corner from close range.

Gibson made another good save to keep The Citizens out and Ferguson came close to sealing the win for The Bully Wee, but he couldn’t keep his first time shot down.

In the final minute, there was a contested decision against Edinburgh as substitute Craig Beattie headed the ball home, but the referee blew for a foul against the big forward.
