Clyde manager Jim Duffy spoke to directly after the match this afternoon:-

“Well, I’m not feeling as sore as I’ve previously done but you are always disappointed if you lose one in the last minute. Then again, we also gained a point in Peterhead late on so you can’t complain as sometimes you get a break and sometimes it goes against you.

“The players were out on their feet later on and I must take a share of the blame as I didn’t make another substitution to calm things down. At the time I wasn’t overly concerned because when I looked at the clock I wondered how much more the ref was going to play but it was not to be.

“From our point of view, our goal was a terrific team goal. The referee deserves great credit for playing on and the players also should be praised for playing to the whistle and making the breakthrough.

“On the whole I didn’t think there was much in the match. I felt the first half was quite poor but things improved in the second half and we could have capitalised on good play, but we were unable to convert. Queen’s Park were always going to throw everything at us and so it proved.

“In hindsight I should have changed things maybe have sacrificed Fergie or Stuart (McColm) and brought on an extra midfielder, but with Michael (Daly) having to go off and us having to make a double swap for the same position we chose not to and that is something I will be kicking myself about. I’m angry at myself, not the players who worked tremendously hard at a ground we have struggled at in the past.

“It was difficult but Queen’s Park are improving and we could see that today, so a point is not the worst result.”
