Two second half goals from David Goodwillie proved to be the difference between the sides as we failed to score against Clyde for the first time since October 1991 when we went down to a 4-0 defeat at old Douglas Park.

There were three changes to the side from the previous week with Cox suspended and Buchanan out with a broken hand while Malone dropped out of the squad. Pyper and Mullen returned after serving suspensions while Reilly started up front.

It was a slow start to the game with the Bully Wee’s Nicholl having the first meaningful shot on goal with 23 minutes gone with his long range effort drifting over the bar.

A minute later Goodwillie cut the ball back on the bye line to Boyle who sent his shot over.

Cuddihy then sent a 20 yard effort wide of goal just short of the half hour and 11 minutes from the break McGurn held a 25 yard free kick from Boyle.

After a goalless opening 45 minutes it took the Bully Wee just two minutes to break the deadlock in the second half when Boyle flicked the ball to Lamont who slotted the ball to David GOODWILLIE, who almost lost his footing, but regained control to slot the ball past McGurn.

With 55 minutes gone we had our best chance of the afternoon to level when Brad Smith sent over a cross to McInally but his shot from the edge of the box bounced off the crossbar.

With 69 minutes gone we went further behind with GOODWILLIE getting his second goal of the afternoon from the penalty spot.

The former Scotland internationalist had beaten Rumsby on the right wing and as he cut into the box was brought down by Pyper.

Soon after the striker almost got his hat trick when Nicholl played him through on goal but his shot came off the base of the goal.
