Cusack fires Clyde to victory

Two first half goals from Liam Cusack helped Clyde to a 3-0 win at Elgin.

Clyde took the lead after 12 minutes with their first attack. John Neill fed the ball to Cusack on the right of the area and he fired into the top corner.

The same two players combined after 26 minutes to double the advantage, with Neill playing the ball to Cusack in the area again to slot home.

Elgin's best chance fell to Stuart Leslie on the hour mark but he could only send his volley over the bar.

But Neill got Clyde's third eight minutes later when his placed his shot into the bottom corner, after good work from Iain Gray.

Late tests for Elgin trio

Table-topping Elgin have midfielder Daniel Moore missing through suspension for the visit of Clyde.

Manager Ross Jack, who welcomes back Jason Crooks after an ankle injury, is keeping his fingers crossed for further good news from the Borough Briggs treatment room before kick-off.

The Black and Whites will give fitness tests to Archie McPhee, Brian Cameron and Craig Gunn.

Jack said: "I am hopeful that I will have all three players available but even having two of them would be a positive result.

"We are top but I know how much I want Elgin to defeat a side that are in top spot and I would imagine that Jim Duffy will be exactly the same so we need to play well to stay there."

Clyde include fit-again full back Gavin Brown after the former Kilmarnock kid shook off a groin strain.

The bad news for manager Jim Duffy is the absence of Pat Scullion with a knee injury and Craig Tully through work commitments.

The Bully Wee will be told to make sure they capitalise when they are on top in games with Duffy saying: "We had a good spell in games recently when we have been on top and not scored and it has cost us points.

"At any level of football it is important to take your chances.

"Although Elgin are flying just now, we won up there last season it is a game I am looking forward to."
