Elgin City 1 - 1 Clyde

Tuesday 28th February 2012
B Wilson (89)J Pollock (37)

City clinch crucial point

Elgin kept their play-off ambitions alive by snatching a late point from a 1-1 draw with Clyde.

The hosts came close to opening the scoring after just three minutes, but Mark Nicholson's header was well saved by Nicholas Feely.

Daniel Moore was next to test Feely but he too was denied by another fine save.

Against the run of play the Bully Wee took the lead eight minutes before the interval, Jamie Pollock's stunning 25-yard drive leaving Alexander Clark with no chance.

Paul Millar came close to an equaliser five minutes after the restart, but Feely produced a flying save to keep it out.

And Feely made yet another fine stop, tipping Archibald McPhee's effort round the post before the Black and Whites' pressure finally paid off.

Barry Wilson then produced a sumptuous free-kick from the edge of the box to leave Feely with no chance and snatch a point in the final minute.

Elgin to give duo time

Elgin manager Ross Jack will give strikers Brian Cameron and Paul Millar until kick-off to prove their fitness for their clash against a Clyde side who are the only outfit to defeat the hosts at Borough Briggs this season.

John Calder, Graeme Beveridge, Paul Kaczan and Ross O'Donoghue will all miss out again through injury

"We are a bit stretched and hopefully we can get Brain and Paul on the pitch for at least part of the game," Jack said.

"Clyde fully deserved to beat us back in September and played well when we beat them a week ago.

"We need to play well as after getting back into a play-off place we do not want to lose it."

Clyde goalkeeper David Crawford will miss out.

Crawford has a thigh strain and on-loan Celtic teenager Nick Feely will deputise.

Defender Jason Marr is a doubt with a hamstring strain, with the Bully Wee again without the injured Daniel Fitzpatrick and Jack Sloss.

Jim Duffy's side won 3-0 in Morayshire earlier in the season and the Broadwood boss said: "We can look back on that day as a highlight.

"We got a couple of breaks that day and sometimes you need that in this league as there is so little between the teams.

"Alloa had that wee bit more guile than us at the weekend and we lost 1-0 but to run the top side close will give us confidence."
