Clyde 3 Montrose 0

This was always looking to be a tough game for Montrose against a Clyde side who have come into great form which incidentally started with a win over the Mo back in January. Incoming Manager Danny Lennon certainly has his side well drilled and the result was not in doubt by half time.

Broadwood is often referred to as the wind tunnel and it certainly lived up to it, otherwise the game started off in sunny conditions though that did not deter Clyde from attacking from the first whistle as Goodwillie won the ball well only for Fleming to deny him. The next two attacks were also from Clyde but firstly Stewart blazed over from 18 yards then Lamont hit a 30 yarder wind assisted and which flew just wide. In between times Gary Fraser managed to stray offside at the other end. Goodwillie tripped when it was again looking dangerous for Montrose whose best outlet from pressure was to use the two wing backs Ballantyne and Steeves.

Montrose held out for the first 30 minutes without causing too much trouble at the other end but a Clyde goal looked inevitable and it came when Lamont latched on to a through ball down the middle and angled it past Fleming and in off a post. In the next attack Fleming was called on again to push another effort out for a corner before Montrose themselves won a corner taken by Fotheringham but although his kick travelled right across the six yard box there were no eager blue shirts to apply the finishing touch. Steeves then hit a stinging ball across the face of goal but his in swinger was just wide in what turned out to be the Mo’s only decent spell in the first half. As half time approached Clyde scored again from a corner when McNiff buried a header unchallenged into the top corner though it looked like Templeman was illegally pushed in the process. Referee Steven Reid thought otherwise.

At two down it was a mountain to climb for Montrose but on the very stroke of half time it got worse when the dangerous Goodwillie was given time in the centre of the box to pick his spot and make it 3-0. You can’t allow that with players of his quality.

In the second half Clyde came out firing again and we sensed a rout. Montrose brought off Fotheringham for Craig Johnston to add pace up front as both Fraser and Templeman just could not get any hold on the game. It was Johnston who should have pulled a goal back but when 1 on 1 with keeper Blair Currie the latter spread himself well and the chance was gone. Chances like that have to be put away. Ballantyne then darted into the box and fired a shot at Currie and as it dropped for Johnston his hastily struck shot went high and wide.

As Montrose started coming more into the game with half an hour to go Clyde decided to shut up shop and a flurry of substitutions were made. For Montrose Kerr Hay came on for Jamie Redman whilst Alistair Love replaced Jack Boyle for Clyde. Then Rennie came on for Templeman and Clyde made their last two changes with Goodwillie off for Kipre and Lowdon on for Lamont. In between times Fleming again made a great save at one end and Kerr Hay hit a rasping drive narrowly over at the other end. Johnston was booked for dissent, Stewart for Clyde skimmed the bar with a 30 yarder then Paul Watson was unlucky with his 30 yarder which hit the face of the bar then the back of the keeper’s head but somehow stayed out of the net.

During the final ten minutes Steeves and Hay both saw yellow for late tackles – both correct decisions although a couple of similar Clyde efforts went unpunished and that added to Montrose’s frustration.

The game ended 3-0 to Clyde and deservedly so. Montrose are good enough to grind out results from other teams in this division as they have shown already this season but Clyde were a class above on the day – credit where it’s due.
