Berwick Rangers 0 - 2 Clyde

Saturday 3rd December 2011
J Sweeney (pen 25)
L Cusack (86)

Clyde claim the points

A goal in either half saw Clyde end Berwick's five-game unbeaten run in the Scottish Third Division.

Berwick went into the game at Shielfield Park looking to consolidate their play-off position, while Clyde were coming off the back of a goalless draw to league leaders Annan Athletic.

The home side created the first clear chance through top scorer Darren Gribben, whose well-struck shot was palmed away.

But it was Clyde who took the lead from the penalty spot in the 25th minute. Goalkeeper Jamie Barclay fouled Jordan White and John Sweeney stepped up to smash the ball home.

The game was keenly contested with the ref dishing out seven yellow cards. Ross Gray had a chance to grab an equaliser in the second half but he shot tamely when well placed.

Clyde made the points safe in the 86th minute when Liam Cusack drilled the ball home from close range.

Injured duo out of Clyde clash

Berwick will be without injured duo Chris McLeod and Fraser McLaren for the visit of Clyde.

Richard Walker is also absent because of holiday commitments as Rangers look to build on their run of four wins in five games since interim player/manager Ian Little took charge.

A back injury keeps Little from playing but Chris Townsley is fit again with the Borderers determined to keep hold of their play-off place.

Little said: "We went up to Montrose last week and scored five times in difficult conditions to move into fourth place and we do not want to let that go by losing the next game.

"Clyde have been hard opponents for us already this season but we have a platform I want us to build on in terms of pushing for promotion."

Clyde will have three trialists in their squad to help bolster numbers after injuries ruled out goalkeeper Felip Mentel, defenders Gavin Brown and Declan Gallacher and winger Paul McMullan.

Striker Stephen MacDonald is also missing through suspension to further reduce manager Jim Duffy's options while a number of youth players have been added to the pool.

Duffy said: "We have not played for three weeks and that has given us the chance to look at some players at training and we will now see them in a game situation.

"Berwick are flying just now so it will be a tough task for us to win down there but I am sure the players involved will give their all."
