Clyde 1-2 Elgin City

Elgin scored two second-half goals as they came from behind to beat Clyde at the Broadwood Stadium.

Chances were at a premium in the first half with neither side able to create any clear-cut chances.

Clyde took the lead in fortuitous fashion after 23 minutes when David Niven nodded an Iain Gray cross past his own goalkeeper.

The Bully Wee hit back just after the restart as Daniel Moore's stunning free-kick from distance left David Crawford with no chance.

And they took the lead immediately. Moore was involved again as his corner was headed home by Mark Durnan.

Despite a late surge from the hosts, Elgin held firm to claim all three points.

Victory lifts them within two points of the play-off positions with a game in hand on their promotion rivals.
