BERWICK boss Ian Little admitted he may have got it wrong after twice watching his side throw away second-half leads and two points in their quest for a play-off place.

BERWICK boss Ian Little admitted he may have got it wrong after twice watching his side throw away second-half leads and two points in their quest for a play-off place.

He said:”It might have been a better idea to shut up shop.

“We could have gone more defensive and perhaps it was a bit naïve on my part, but the way we were playing we looked so far in front I did not think it was necessary.

“It really is very disappointing and frustrating not to have taken all three points because I thought this was some of the best football we have played all season .

“There was plenty of quality in the goals, in fact we should probably have had quite a few more.”

Rangers dominated the first half but it was Clyde who went in at the break in front courtesy of a 26th-minute free-kick by Lee Sharp.

The Borderers hit back at the start of the second half with two goals in three minutes.

Dylan Easton paved the way for Darren Lavery to level, then turned architect again by creating space for Fraser McLaren.

The Bully Wee levelled in 59 minutes through John Sweeney before Lavery headed the hosts back in front from a McLaren delivery in 64 minutes.

With ten minutes remaining, sub Pat Scullion pounced to square it again and snatch a point for the visitors.
