VIDEO: Clyde see off Keith battlers

Written byCraig Christie

KEITH exited the Scottish Cup on Saturday despite a gutsy first half performance against Clyde.

Highlights from the William Hill Scottish Cup YouTube channel show the Maroons losing 3-0 against their SPFL League 2 opponents at Kynoch Park.

Keith didn’t make it easy for the Bully Wee in the first 45 minutes and went in at the break with a 0-0 scoreline.

Clyde secured the all-important breakthrough three minutes into the second half, with a skilful close range flick from Smart Osadolor.

The league side never looked back from there, scoring two more goals through Max Wright and Darren Ramsay to coast through.

Home defender Michael Ralton was red-carded in a flare-up after a foul for the free kick which led to Wright netting the visitors’ second.

Maroons manager Ewan Robb said: “It was a good first half for us but that goal after half-time was a killer for us.”

Elsewhere in the cup, Cove won 2-1 at Nairn in an all-Highland League tie while Fraserburgh won 2-0 at edinburgh University, who knocked out Lossiemnouth in the last round.

Also through are Brora, who thumped hosts Civil Service Strollers 5-0 and Formartine, 4-0 winners over former league side East Stirling.

Formartine will now host Forfar, managed by former Elgin City boss Jim Weir.

Clach lost 5-0 at Spartans, Deveronvale were beaten 2-0 by Glenafton Athletic while north junior side Banks o’Dee defeated Selkirk 2-0, and now meet Ayr United.

The draw for the third round was made by former Aberdeen, Manchester United and Scotland assistant manager Archie Knox.
