The Black and Whites threw away a 2-0 half time lead to lose 3-2 at Clyde on Saturday.

The defeat extended their run without a league victory to nine matches.

City slipped to fourth place as a result, just one point ahead of Montrose.

Should Weir’s side extend their win-less run to ten games by failing to beat Stirling Albion at home on Saturday they could drop out of the play-off zone altogether.

Chris McLeish capitalised on a defensive error to go through and slip City into the lead at Broadwood.

An angled Chris Dodd finish then made it 2-0, with the visitors holding on to their lead until half time despite some strong Clyde attacks.

All that changed after the break, as former Scotland, Aberdeen and Dundee United striker David Goodwillie stole the show with a hat-trick to turn the game Clyde’s way.

It was Elgin’s fifth consecutive defeat on the plastic pitch at Broadwood.

Already without top scorer Shane Sutherland and full back Matthew Cooper through injury, City have now lost midfielder Brian Cameron to an achilles problem, possibly for the rest of the season.

They were also missing captain Archie Macphee, with Ryan Sinnamon and Darryl McHardy featuring in the full back positions.
