Clyde 0-3 Brechin City

Sat, 23rd Jan 2010 6:59pm

The Bully Wee suffered a disappointing defeat at Broadwood this afternoon, in a match that was heavily influenced by a controversial refereeing decision.

Clyde started with four new players in the team; Willie Kinniburgh and trialist Neil McGowan in defence, Adam Strachan (right) in midfield and John Stewart up front.

They helped Clyde make a decent start to the match, with only a lack of a better final ball preventing a good chance being created on a couple of occasions.

After half an hour though, a mistake by Callum Reidford was to prove costly. He caught an innocuous long ball outside of the box, but the referee felt that it was a clear goalscoring opportunity and sent the 'keeper off.

Trialist sub goalkeeper Scott Findlay was introduced for Connor Cassidy.

He was soon to pick the ball out of the net as Brechin capitalised on the advantage, McAllister's effort finding the target.

The second half also started badly as Docherty quickly made it 0-2 with a shot from the edge of the box and the match was virtually over as a contest when Fusco made it three with another shot from 20-yard range.

Clyde sub Steven Howarth came closest to getting a home goal but the visitors were comfortable in confirming the victory.
