Clyde 2-1 Elgin City

Kevin Watt scored twice as Clyde recorded a first home league win of the season with success over Elgin City.

Watt opened just before the half-hour when he finished from six yards after being put through by Scott Durie.

The forward then took advantage of a mix-up in the Elgin defence to slot home from close range.

Mark Nicolson got a goal back, scoring from a rebound, and in a tense finale he missed two further chances to grab a point.
