Annan maintain perfect start with win over Clyde

Annan won for the fourth league game in a row to maintain the only perfect record in Scottish football as they defeated Clyde 1-0.

The winner came when Steven Sloan’s header on 15 minutes slipped from the grasp of goalkeeper Felip Mentel and crawled over the line. Clyde had the best of the remainder of the game, but they could not force a leveller. Galabank boss Harry Cairney said: “We rode our luck especially in the second half. Clyde will feel that they should have had a point if not three.”

Visiting manager Jim Duffy said: “It was very frustrating as it was all us in the second half and we deserved something.”
