Peterhead 1 - 0 Clyde

Saturday 17th November 2012
R Winters (45+2)

Winters warms Peterhead's hearts

Robbie Winters hit the only goal of the game as Peterhead climbed to third in the Irn Bru Scottish Third Division with a 1-0 success over struggling Clyde.

Clyde striker Kevin Watt's drilled effort was brilliantly denied by Blue Toon goalkeeper Marc McCallum just before the half-hour mark before Ryan Strachan tested Jamie Barclay from 25 yards at the other end.

Veteran striker Winters then put Jim McInally's side in front in the final minute of the first half as he nodded David Cox's cross into the bottom left-hand corner from 12 yards.

Scott McLaughlin came close to doubling the lead in the 59th minute but his powerfully-struck drive from 20 yards whistled over the crossbar.

Clyde failed to create any clear-cut chances of an equaliser in the closing stages as they slipped to a fourth successive loss and seven games without a league win.

Smith set for Peterhead bow

Peterhead are hoping to conclude a deal to have former Kilmarnock, St Johnstone and St Mirren goalkeeper Graeme Smith in between the posts for the visit of Clyde.

Smith has been training with the Balmoor club and is expected to put pen to paper on Saturday morning.

However, manager Jim McInally has other concerns to deal with as Callum Macdonald, Martin Bavidge, David Ross and Graeme Sharp have been ruled out and Jamie Redman is a doubt.

McInally said: "Having Graeme on board would be a great move as he has great experience.

"Like a lot of teams in this league we want to find a consistent high level and a win over Clyde would be a great start to taking us towards that target."

Second bottom Clyde make the trip looking for their first win in nine games.

John Neil is back in their squad following his ban for getting sent off against Rangers last month.

Steve Masterton has been released by the club and manager Jim Duffy's options could be reduced further as Gavin Brown is a major doubt due to a groin injury and new recruit, former St Mirren and Kilmarnock youngster Ross Lindsay, is not match fit.

Duffy said: "On their day Peterhead are one of the top sides in this division so we are preparing for a tough afternoon.

"We have not won in while but have not been playing badly and just need to cut out silly errors and a win will come."
