VIDEO: Three in a row for Elgin's new boss

A victory at bogey team Clyde made it three wins out of three for new Elgin City boss Gavin Price.

City came from behind to defeat their Cumbernauld hosts 4-2 on Saturday.

The win maintained Price’s perfect start to his senior managerial career since taking over from Jim Weir this month.

The Black and Whites had lost in their five previous visits to Broadwood, and eight times in their last nine trips to Clyde.

That horror run looked set to continue when former Scotland striker David Goodwillie fired the Bully Wee into an early lead.

Elgin settled down and equalised through a powerful left foot drive from on-loan Aberdeen teenager Bruce Anderson.

Into the second half, a sweeping City move led to Ali Sutherland crossing for Chris McLeish to head home.

A fine finish by centre back Darryl McHardy made it 3-1, though Clyde pulled one back on 81 minutes through Smart Osadolor.

With Clyde pressing for an equaliser, City pounced with a last minute counter-attack and sub Jordan Allan lobbed home his fourth of the season to seal the win.

Elgin remain in fifth place but firmly in the chase for the play-offs at this stage of the campaign.

Tweet from City manager Gavin Price:

This weekend they play host to Peterhead, who have already defeated City twice this season.
