Clyde 2-2 Ayr United
Eddie Annand heads Ayr's equaliser at Broadwood
Eddie Annand heads Ayr's equaliser at Broadwood
Clyde broke their duck against Ayr United this season to dent the Somerset Park side's hopes of promotion.

But the home side, bolstered by new striker Leigh Hinds, signed from Wimbledon, will rue a series of missed chances.

Andy Kane gave Clyde a great start, but Eddie Annand and Gary Teale looked to have given Ayr their fourth win over their rivals this season.

That was until former United defender Andy Millen struck a late equaliser for the Bully Wee.

Clyde had Gordon Greer suspended, but Brian Smith was back on the bench following a period on the sidelines with injury along with 22-year-old Hinds.

Pat McGinlay was suspended for the visitors, while John Hughes and Marvyn Wilson were sidelined through injury.

Went wild

Clyde went in front when Kane volleyed a brilliant goal after 25 minutes.

The visitors got back on level terms seven minutes before half-time.

Teale's corner was met at the far post by former Clyde striker Annand, who headed into the net.

Three minutes later, the Ayr fans went wild when Teale picked up a defensive clearance at the edge of the area and drilled a shot home off the inside of the post.

Clyde were the more dangerous side in the second half and had a number of near misses.

The most glaring came when James Hendry saw his effort booted off the line by Mark Campbell.

The home side were not to be denied and got their second goal when former Ayr skipper Millen turned in the box and shot high into the net.
