Match Report

It’s advantage Clyde League Two promotion play-off semi-final as they left Ainslie Park with a 1-0 first leg win over Edinburgh City.

James McDonaugh’s team will be wondering how they after they hit the woodwork three times during the 90 minutes, twice during the second half.

It’s hard to argue that the absence of SPFL top scorer Blair Henderson was keenly felt by the hosts.

Conrad Balatoni was inches away from giving City an early lead when he thumped a header against the cross bar.

Clyde made no mistake at the other end when David Goodwillie burst down the left and cut inside before teeing up Kristoffer Syversten, who drilled low past Antell to open th scoring.

City contrived to miss a great chance to equalise after the break. Josh Walker’s swerving drive was poorly dealt with by Currie, who palmed the ball straight to Scott Shepherd, but he couldn’t keep his volley down and hit the bar with an open goal in front of him.

They though they were about to level again late on when Marc Laird’s through ball put Shepherd in. he beat Currie at his near post, only for the ball to hit the outside of the upright.
