Queen's Park 3-0 Clyde

Two goals in the opening 10 minutes helped Queen's Park move into second place in Division Three with a convincing win over Clyde.

Jamie Longworth handed the home side the lead in the seventh minute, when Owen Ronald's cross picked out Longworth, who provided an assured finish from just yards out.

Three minutes later, the lead was doubled thanks to Ian Watt, who found the bottom corner of the net from close range, with Longworth this time turning provider.

James Brough could have made it three before the break, but he could not keep his header on target.

Ronald had his second assist of the night two minutes from time when his pass found Martin McBride, the defender showing attacking quality with a finish that found the roof of the goal.

Victory means the Spiders leapfrog two points ahead of Stranraer and are now nine points behind leaders Alloa Athletic.

Clyde remain only a point ahead of second-bottom Montrose and six from East Stirlingshire.
