Peterhead boss Jim McInally described Saturday’s first half performance at Broadwood as the best he has ever seen Peterhead play.
The Blue Toon were in complete control and took a 2-0 lead in to the break before surviving a Clyde fight-back in the second half.
“In eight years that is the best 45 minutes I’ve ever seen Peterhead play,” said McInally.
“I thought we were fantastic and 2-0 didn’t flatter us.
“It was a flawless performance, everything we did was excellent.
“The second half I never expected it to be any difference but Clyde are notoriously a good come back team.
“They never gave it up, pushed us like we did to them in the first half but they didn’t have a shot at goal until they scored.
“We made it hard for ourselves in the last 15 minutes but we competed well and I’m delighted because I have a lot of respect for Clyde, they are a really good side.”
Peterhead will next host the form team in League 1 as Montrose visit Balmoor this Saturday on the back of six wins in a row.
“The boys have set a standard now that they need to maintain,” said McInally.
“We had a bad run a few weeks ago where we lost a couple of games we probably deserved something out of.
“Montrose are on a fantastic run, six wins on the bounce, nobody else has done that.
“At some point we will need to go on a run as well and cement a healthy place in the league.”
