Two first-half goals gave Clyde victory against Montrose and moved them top of Scottish League Two.

Kevin Watt finished from Scott Ferguson's corner to put the visitors ahead and Ferguson headed the second.

The hosts were reduced to 10 men shortly before the break when Ross McCord received his second booking of the game.

Gary Wood was off target as Montrose tried to get back into the game in the second half.

And, with Peterhead drawing with Albion Rovers, Clyde move two points clear at the summit.
