Scottish League Two

Clyde got their League Two campaign off to a flyer when they travelled to the Excelsior Stadium on Saturday to take on Queen’s Park.

After a second-half comeback a Michael Daly last-minute score gave the Broadwood side a deserved win.

The Bully Wee had good spells of possession in the first half, and Scott McManus was unlucky to see his superb volley hit the inside of the post. However, Jamie Barclay had to
scramble to keep out a long-range free kick at the other end.

Just before the interval Darren Miller missed a great chance when his header went wide of the post, before Scott Ferguson’s mazy run ended with Willie Muir pulling off a great save to deny the Clyde winger.

Clyde made a slow start to the second half and Queens capitalised on this in the 58th minute, Miller’s corner bypassing Scott Durie and Jamie Barclay before ending up in the net put the hosts in front.

The visitors were given a lifeline with just over ten minutes to go when a Tony Quinn challenge on Ferguson saw the referee point to the penalty spot. Ross McKinnon stepped up and found the net with an excellent spot kick.

In the last minute, Clyde’s continued pressure paid off as David Sinclair’s cross found Michael Daly and the substitute made no mistake in heading home the winning goal.
