Montrose 0-3 Clyde

Clyde bounced back strongly from their bruising cup loss to Spartans with a commanding victory away to Montrose.

The result lifted the Bully Wee above their opponents into the play-off places, dominating the game after Scott Ferguson's 30-second headed opener .

Ferguson turned provider, with Euan Murray latching on to his incisive pass to double the advantage.

Aidan McIlduff completed the scoring in the second half, driving home from an Andy Gibson through ball.
