Result: Clyde 2-2 Elgin City

Elgin City let a two-goal lead slip as they are held to a 2-2 draw at Clyde.

Elgin City have missed the chance to go top of the Scottish Third Division after they let a two-goal lead slip in a 2-2 draw at Clyde.

The result means that there has still not been a home victory for either side in the history of the fixture.

The visitors took the lead after only eight minutes through Jamie Duff before captain David Niven headed in to double their lead with 10 minutes to play in the half.

However, Stuart McColm struck in the final stages of the first half to get Clyde back in contention.

Their comeback was complete 10 minutes after the restart when John Sweeney converted from the penalty spot.

Clyde thought that they had taken the lead soon after, but Bryan Gilfillan's effort was ruled out for offside.
