Peterhead 2-1 Clyde

Peterhead moved top of the League Two table on goal difference following victory against struggling Clyde.

The hosts dominated in the early exchanges with Chris Johnston and James Stevenson both going close.

Russell McLean made the breakthrough on 37 minutes from close range, with Jack Leitch firing home soon after.

David Goodwillie pulled one back for the visitors just after the hour and the same player went close late on as the Blue Toon held on.
