Match Report


Manager, Marvin Bartley made one change to the starting eleven that faced Airdrie last weekend. With goalkeeper Kevin Dabrowski not 100% fit, Gordon Botterill was handed his debut in goal with Dabrowski making up the bench.
It was the home side who made the early running and had Queens pegged back in their own half. Harry Cochrane was on the front post to clear and as the ball came back into play, Ross Cunningham blasted a shot from distance that took a deflection out for another corner.
With 12 minutes on the clock Martin Rennie got on then end of Cameron Salkeld’s cross but his header was straight into the arms of Botterill. As Queens eventually managed to push up field, Connor Murray’s effort was tipped out by Neil Parry. From the resulting corner, Kieran McKechnie had his back to goal but as he tried to lift it over the keeper, Parry stretched high to collect.
Queens were getting forward more and Lewis Gibson tried to find the top corner with a right foot shot but he couldn’t get enough curl on it, and it flew just wide of the upright.
The host’s play was earning them a number of corners and as Queens failed to deal with another Erik Sula was unmarked at the back post to head home the opener after 17 minutes. They almost doubled the lead within a minute as Cunningham created danger, but Botterill got a hand to it to tip it over the bar.
Queens were poor and up against it, Ruari Paton who was back defending sent Gibson away with a clearance, the youngster in turn played it to Josh Todd but as he tried to cross it back for Paton who had go back up from his own half the defence cleared. Paton got a second chance but as he was stretching, he fired over.
Midway through the first half Liam Scullion made a run before cutting inside to fire a low shot from 25 yards just wide of the keeper’s left-hand post. Queens had everybody back behind the ball as a free kick was floated in, but Euan Cameron headed wide.
As the half hour approached, Queens came more into it and some good team play created a chance for Todd. Paton then pounced as the ball took a bounce, and as he found Todd, the captain got enough on it to play it out for Stephen Hendrie who got the shot in, but it was off target.
It was a better spell for the visitors and as McKechnie delivered a teasing ball, Parry got there just ahead of Gibson. With six minutes of the half remaining, more decent play from Queens saw another chance for Hendrie from the edge of the box, this time his effort was saved before Parry made another this time from Euan East.
As Paton and Murray worked to create an opening the ball fell to McKechnie, but his first-time shot was well wide. In the final minutes, a long ball was chested down by Murray for Paton, but his volley was too high.
HALF TIME: Clyde 1 Queens 0
Into the second half, Queens were a more attacking force and as they won a free kick, Murray’s delivery was headed towards goal by Jack Brydon but turned away for a corner. Nine minutes after the break, Queens were back level. Paton did well to control the ball before bringing it down knock it to the side of the defender and firing into the top corner.
Clyde weren’t giving up and as they pushed forward Ryan McGeever got in behind the back line and although he looked offside, the flag stayed down but the big defender fired well over from close range.
As he retreated to the other end, he hooked the ball clear as substitute Lee Connelly did well to keep the ball in and get it back across the face of goal.
Both sides pushed for the winner and Queens had to stay strong at the back while at the other end, Brydon made a great run as he got the break of the ball and Paton tried an overhead kick but couldn’t get enough on it.
Paton was linking up well with Ross Irving and as the two played a one-two, the Dumfries youngster kept his shot low, but Parry got down well to save.
As Clyde opened up Queens Oliver McDonald found space but hit a left foot shot over.
And in a controversial end to the game Queens were denied a second. Paton took the ball on his shoulder before playing it across for Brydon who fired the ball into the net only for referee Chris Graham to pull it back judging that Paton had handled the ball. 
Brydon had the final chance of the game in added on time when he headed wide McKechnie’s cross.
The drama did continue after the full-time whistle as the Gaffer was shown a red card by Graham.
