Berwick surrendered a two-goal lead and conceded a dramatic last -minute equaliser as Clyde denied ten-man Rangers the opportunity of a third successive win under new manager Colin Cameron.

Berwick had beaten Stirling Albion and Albion Rovers in Cameron’s first two games in charge - and it looked as if they were set for the treble when they raced into a 3-1 half-time lead.

However, Clyde hit back back after the break and, after they pulled a goal back, Steven Notman was sent off with ten minutes remaining - Clyde grabbing the equaliser in the 90th minute.

Cameron said: “It was disappointing we couldn’t hang on for the win.

“The sending-off didn’t help and losing a last-minute goal was a real blow because the two extra points could have seen us climb the table to fifth.”

Berwick took the lead when Michael Dunlop headed in from a Lee Currie free-kick after only two minutes.

They doubled the advantage after 19 minutes when a low free- kick from Cameron was flicked over the line by Josh Morris.

The home side pulled a goal back after 37 minutes when Michael Daly headed in from a free kick, but just a minute later midfielder Paul Currie netted his third goal in three games when he headed in at the back post from a cross by Notman.

In the second half Lee Currie had a shot blocked, Darren Lavery headed over the bar and Dunlop went close with a shot.

However, after 77 minutes Clyde pulled another goal back when Scott Ferguson shot low into the net from outside the box.

Berwick were then forced to play the last ten minutes with ten men when Notman was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Clyde grabbed a late equaliser when a long clearance from goalkeeper Jamie Barclay was met by Brian McQueen, who fired into the roof of the net.
