Airdrie Utd 0-1 Clyde

Pat Clarke celebrates his winner against Airdrie
Pat Clarke scored the only goal of the game

Pat Clarke gave Clyde the upper hand after a narrow victory over Airdrie in the first leg of the Division One play-off final at Excelsior Stadium.

There was little to excite the fans in a low-key first half and Airdrie were unsettled by the loss of Bobby Donnelly through injury.

Gary Arbuckle's flashing drive six minutes after the break was well saved by Stephen Robertson.

Clarke scored after 77 minutes when he fired home Michael McGowan's pass.

Airdrie pressed for an equaliser and Jimmy Gibson cleared a Paul Lovering header off the line in stoppage time.
