Black and Whites frustrated at Clyde

Elgin missed out on the chance to move top of the Third Division table as Clyde fought from two-goals down to claim a 2-2 draw.

A victory would have ensured the Black and Whites leapfrogged Queens Park at the summit, and the visitors made the perfect start when Jamie Duff gave them an eighth-minute lead by lashing home Daniel Moore's inswinging corner.

David Niven then extended Elgin's lead after 35 minutes when he nodded in Graeme Beveridge's cross from the right.

But the hosts halved the deficit three minutes before the interval when Stuart McColm applied the finishing touch to Sean Fitzharris' centre.

And Clyde struck again shortly after the restart as Mark Nicolson upended Fitzharris inside the penalty box, with John Sweeney keeping his cool to blast home the resulting spot-kick.

Craig Gunn hit the crossbar moments later and Sean Crighton headed over, but Elgin were unable to find the goal which would have put them in pole position.

Fitness tests for Clyde duo

Clyde will give defender David Marsh and midfielder Stevie Masterton late fitness tests as they entertain Elgin City at Broadwood.

The Bully Wee will be looking to put their 3-2 Scottish Cup defeat against Nairn County in their last outing behind them, but both men will need to recover from knee injuries if they are to play any part.

Manager Jim Duffy said: "At Nairn the players switched off after missing a late penalty as they thought the game was going to extra time.

"They scored right at the death so it was a disappointing result but one we have to forget about and be ready to face a strong Elgin.

"They had a fantastic result at the weekend with a 6-1 success over Montrose and we need to put on a really strong performance to stop them doing that. We have shown at times this season we can do that."

Elgin City midfielder Paul Harkins is a doubt with a calf problem.

Manager Ross Jack is without a further five players as the Moray men look for the win that will make his side table-toppers.

A back injury rules Ross O'Donoghue out, Lewis Halford is missing due to a hamstring problem and Dennis Wyness' knee ligament strain keeps him sidelined.

City are also missing two players through work commitments but Jack said: "I do not want to give too much away by saying who they are."

Jack added: "A win at Clyde to follow up our 6-1 home win over Montrose would mean more than going top as we need to show that we can win on the road."
