Clyde kept up their 100 per cent record at the top of the Scottish First Division, but had to survive some intense pressure by Queen of South in the latter stages of the match.

Manager Billy Reid praised keeper Bryn Halliwell for some great saves in the second period, which enabled them to keep another clean sheet.

The Bully Wee boss was delighted with the points and said: "We played some really good football in the first half and were well on top, but failed to take all our chances."The goal that won the game came after 20 minutes when Doonhamers' defence were caught out of position.

Aron Wilford was all on his own to chip the ball over for substitute Aaron Conway to head goalwards. The ball was cleared off the line, but Ian Harty was there to bundle it into the net.

Doonhamers tried to hit back with David McNiven having a couple of good efforts, but it was Clyde who were unlucky not to snatch another when Craig Bryson sent in a header which brought out a great save from keeper Colin Scott.

Queen of South came under more pressure in the second half, but survived when keeper Scott again brought off a fine save from Gary Arbuckle.

But it was up at the other end that Halliwell earned the praise of his manager with saves from McNiven and Thomas English.
