On Saturday, Clyde of course take on Partick Thistle in what promises to be a very tough league encounter. The Bully Wee are still looking for their first win of the season after one draw and two defeats. The Glasgow Jags sit joint second in the table with an unbeaten start but come into this match after a spirited but unsuccessful trip to Motherwell in the CIS cup.
A Game To Remember – Clyde 2v1 Partick Thistle – 07/08/2004
Broadwood was the venue for the opening day clash with Partick just relegated from the SPL after two season’s in the top flight. It was a fast and furious start to the game but neither team were able to create any chances. Partick settled quicker but rarely troubled Bully Wee keeper Bryn Halliwell.
Clyde began to take the ascendancy and with just over twenty-five minutes gone in the first-half, Clyde opened the scoring through Ian Harty after a great assist from Darren Sheridan to spark great celebrations (pictured below). Things go teven better for the home fans as on the stroke of half-time, Clyde sent the home-crowd wild when Jimmy Gibson (pictured left) put a second goal past Kenny Arthur.
Partick piled on the pressure in the second half but had to wait until eighty minutes
