Name or IFC No.
Interim manager Stuart Lovell favoured a 3-5-2 formation in his first game in charge with Gary Wood, Jim Thomson and Chris Carr providing his defence. The middle of the park saw Eric Paton, Paul Burns, Brian McColligan, Brian McLaughlin and Willie Gibson whilst up front Derek Lyle and John O'Neill were giving the task of increasing our goal scoring record.

Brian McLaughlin was to last a mere 8 minutes however as a challenge with a Clyde player on the right hand side saw McLaughlins arm end up underneath the opposition player as the two came crashing to the ground. The result for McLaughlin being a visit to hospital with a suspected dislocated collar bone. This change saw David McNiven brought on for yet another early start form the subs bench as he took up the striker mantle given up by John O'Neill as O'Neill retreated into midfield.

McNiven fires just past
Alex Williams almost made an impressive early impact as he met a ball that Colin Scott failed to come for at the back post but could only blast over with Colin Scott floundering. At the other end David McNiven almost opened the scoring for the home side as he held of a Clyde defender to swivel and strike an effort from the edge of the box that whizzed past the far post without giving Jarvie too much trouble. Chris Carr was booked shortly after for a tackle that was weeks late.
John O'Neill snapped a great effort just wide on twenty six minutes that looked like a goal all the way but was unlucky to sneak past the post and strike the side netting.

O'Neill hits the side netting
Queens received a warning on the half hour mark as Bryson and O'Donnell opened up the Queens defence with a speedy flowing move, fortunately the final effort was poor and Colin Scott could collect comfortably.

The second half saw Clyde grow in confidence and when Willie Gibson carelessly gave away the ball on the edge of the box the youngsters of Clyde pounced with a great passing move that presented a simple tap in for Neil McGregor. At this point the attacks from Clyde were all coming down the right hand side with Gibson and Carr looking exposed as McGowan and Brighton found lots of space to get between the two.

Stuart Lovell made some changes twenty minutes into the half with Steve Bowey and Scott Robertson coming on for Brian McColligan and Paul Burns.

John O'Neill should have scored five minutes later as he was set up from a superb Derek Lyle move that saw Eric Paton back heel the ball into open space for the one time free scoring midfielder, this time though O'Neill could only blast past the post with the goals gaping. And Queens paid for this miss immediately as a fast Clyde counter attack saw Alex Williams and Chris Carr challenge for the same ball with Williams winning the challenge and firing the ball into the net right between Colin Scott's legs.

On the final whistle David McNiven pulled one back for Queens with a headed goal that gave Jarvie no chance but it was too late by then and Queens never really got back up the park to cause any more trouble in the visitors defence.

McNiven notches a consolation

With Stranraer also losing at home the game next week with a 1.00pm kick off becomes even more important.
