Last time away to Clyde
League One, Tuesday 18th October 2022


Clyde 0-2 Dunfermline
Tue, 18th Oct 2022

The visitors went ahead after just a quarter of an hour when Matty Todd won the ball off Morgaro Gomis in his own half and drove forward playing the ball of Craig Wighton inside him and gaining more ground before slipping it back to WIGHTON now outside him, to finish from 15 yards out. 0-1

Although Dunfermline were comfortable with their lead it wasn’t until the very end that they sealed the points. As time ran out Clyde made a valiant effort to find the equaliser but in the third minute of added time were caught out on the break. Keeper Neil Parry was in the centre circle to head the cleared ball back for his forwards. Unluckily for him he found Comrie and his pass was perfect for TODD to find the Clyde net with a left footed shot from 45 yards even though the keeper had almost made it back to his penalty box. 0-2
