Scottish League One play-off: Elgin City 0-2 Clyde (1-5)

Clyde celebrate beating Elgin City

Barry Ferguson's Clyde took another step towards promotion to Scottish League One with victory over Elgin City in the play-off second leg.

A brilliant Jordan Fitzpatrick free-kick midway through the second half all but settled the contest, with Clyde 3-1 ahead before travelling north.

And Scott Linton sealed it right on full-time when he dinked the ball home.

Clyde now face Queen's Park, with the first leg at Broadwood as it is unavailable for the second leg.

Stevie Ross should perhaps have put Elgin ahead when clean in on goal, but his powerful drive was tipped brilliantly behind by John Gibson.

Clyde had a chance to go ahead before Fitzpartick's goal, with David Marsh, David Gormley and Jordan Kirkpatrick all going close after the break.

Kyle Macleod did have a big shout for a penalty for the home side early on when he appeared to be barged on the edge of the box, but that wasn't given by referee Euan Anderson.

It was a very frustrating afternoon that rather petered out for Jim Weir's side.

The visitors managed the game well and frustrated their hosts to few chances, with Linton finding the net at the end to deservedly progress.

Clyde manager Barry Ferguson: "I wasn't pleased with the first half, but I thought we controlled the second half and thoroughly deserved our win.

"Queen's Park are a good team with a lot of good players.

"We played them two or three weeks ago and it was a pretty even game and they beat us by a goal, but it is a final and we have to wait and see who handles it on the day."
