Clyde 0-0 Annan Athletic

Scottish Football League

Annan Athletic missed the chance to pull five points clear at the top of the Scottish Third Division after a bad-tempered draw at Clyde.

The home side showed absolutely no ambition, not recording a shot for the entire 90 minutes, as they held out out for a draw.

Annan's Steven Sloan eventually engineered a chance before half-time but shot straight at Alan Combe when in a good position.

Sean O'Connor then had the best chance of the game but his close-range left-footed effort was again saved comfortably by Combe.

Frustrated striker Stephen McDonald got sent off to leave Clyde a man down for the final 21 minutes.

Yet Annan could not find an opening and Peter Watson's foul on Liam Cusack was enough to see him receive his second booking, as both sides finished a forgettable match with 10 men.
