Clyde 1-1 Montrose

Clyde suffered a late blow in their bid for a top four finish in League Two today, as Montrose grabbed an unlikely point.

Jim Duffy made two changes to the team that lost at Peterhead last week, with Scott Ferguson and Stef McCluskey replacing Ross McKinnon and Pat Scullion.

The Bully Wee enjoyed the best of the opening exchanges and Stuart McColm had a great chance to score when he was put through on the ‘keeper, but Stuart McKenzie made a good stop despite already being on the surface.

After 31 minutes, a goal did arrive and it was McCluskey with the strike. A long ball forward by Ferguson was missed by the Montrose defence and McCluskey finished it brilliantly (pictured).

For the majority of the second half, Clyde looked in control of the match but – crucially – couldn’t exert enough pressure on the away side to record a second goal. Ferguson wasn’t able to direct a volley on target and Brian McQueen’s header also drifted past the post.

With less than ten minutes left on the clock, The Gable Endies took advantage of the situation with a rare effort on goal. A high ball into the box wasn’t fully dealt with by the Clyde defence and Scott Johnston was in the right position to beat Jamie Barclay from the edge of the box.

That left Clyde with little time to find a winner and a disappointing full-time scoreline of 1-1 was confirmed.
