Clyde eased to a fifth victory in a row over Edinburgh City to move into the Scottish League One Play-off final against Annan Athletic.

Kristoffer Syvertsen's goal in the capital had given the Cumbernauld side a first-leg lead and the striker tapped in after 15 minutes.

Fellow strikers Ally Love and David Goodwillie found the net after the break to secure the victory.

Annan will host the first leg on Tuesday, with the second on Saturday.

Clyde received a boost ahead of kick-off, with Danny Lennon being named League Two manager of season by sponsor Ladbrokes.

Captain Goodwillie again led from the front, setting up both goals before scoring his own 22nd goal of the season.

Clyde, who finished runners-up in League Two, go into the final unbeaten in eight games since their title challenge was thrown off course by the points awarded to Albion Rovers for playing an ineligible player.

Annan, who finished fourth, secured their progress with a 2-1 win that relegated Stenhousemuir back to League Two 4-1 on aggregate.
