Queen's Park 1 - 0 Clyde

Saturday 15th September 2012
I Watt (27)

Watt has the answer for Queens Park

Ian Watt scored the decisive goal as Queens Park earned a 1-0 victory against Clyde at Hampden Park.

The hosts had won all of the last seven previous meetings between the two sides, and went ahead after 27 minutes when Watt found the top corner with a stunning 30-yard effort.

Anthony Quinn almost doubled the Spiders' lead three minutes from half-time, but his close-range volley drew a point-blank save from Clyde goalkeeper Jamie Barclay.

Paul Hay had the chance to draw the visitors level four minutes after the interval but he was unable to keep his effort from the edge of the area on target.

The Bully Wee had won back-to-back games coming into the fixture, and were unlucky not to equalise in the 78th minute when Stefan McCluskey's volley flew past the post.

Gardner Speirs' side were able to hold on to their lead, and almost extended their victory margin two minutes from time when Stuart McColm let fly with a speculative effort.

Smith and Gallagher miss Hampden clash

Queen's Park striker Craig Smith misses the match with Clyde due to a thigh strain.

Centre back Paul Gallagher is also unavailable through work commitments.

Head coach Gardner Speirs said: "Clyde have made an extremely good start to the season so this will be a really tough encounter.

"We have enjoyed the break as we won our last game but that feeling will stop as soon as this one starts.

"We need to be prepared to battle hard for the three points as Clyde have plenty of reasons to want to win this game and keep their own good run going."

Clyde include new centre-back Craig Wedderburn in their squad for the trip.

The former Raith and Arbroath defender has agreed a short-term deal after impressing as a trialist against Annan recently.

The Cumbernauld side have seen their numbers for the trip to Hampden boosted by having Bryan Gilfillan, Steven Masterton and Stefan McCluskey available after shaking off knocks, but Ian Gray remains out.

Despite seven defeats in a row by their hosts, manager Jim Duffy is looking forward to the game.

He said: "If we want to beat Queen's Park then we simply have to play better against them.

"In those seven games I can only think of two where we did ourselves justice, but we have the chance to make amends now."
