Clyde 1 - 1 Annan Athletic

Saturday 17th March 2012
J Pollock (26)D Winters (70)

Missed chance for Athletic

Annan missed the chance to move closer to the Scottish Third Division play-off positions as they had a man sent off in a 1-1 draw at Clyde.

The Galabankies went a goal behind after 26 minutes when Motherwell loanee Jamie Pollock found the bottom corner from close-range.

Clyde midfielder John Sweeney went close when he let fly from 25 yards nine minutes into the second half before David Winters levelled the scores.

The 29-year-old striker beat Nick Seely with a low effort to record his fourth goal in nine games after 70 minutes.

Five minutes later Annan striker David Cox was shown a straight red card for violent conduct, but the hosts were unable to capitalise.

Ryan Kane came closest to finding a winner but his volley was saved by Alex Mitchell 11 minutes from time.

Bully Wee sweating over duo

Clyde duo Jason Marr and John Neill both face fitness tests as they look to end a run of six games without a win by seeing off visitors Annan.

Broadwood manager Jim Duffy is hoping the pair make it as he has already had to rule out Gavin Brown, Kieran Brannan, Kris Irvine and Daniel Fitzpatrick through injury.

Duffy said: "The Third Division is at a really interesting stage as everyone has something to play for whether it is to avoid finishing bottom, a play-off place or the title and promotion.

"Annan will be coming here looking for a win to get their promotion push going again but we want a win to push up the table a bit so it should be an intriguing contest."

Annan boss Harry Cairney is waiting on striker Sean O'Connor before he finalises his side.

O'Connor is struggling with a knee injury and will face a late test as the Galabank men look to end a run of four straight defeats.

Bryan Gilfillan remains out with a calf injury and Jordan McKechnie sits out the second game of his suspension, with Graeme Bell's hip injury also causing Cairney concern.

The Black and Gold's boss said: "It is getting to the stage where we simply have to win games to get our promotion push going again. Clyde are one of the hardest working teams in the league and we have to match that first and foremost and then go out to win the game."
