Ryan Hynes scored a hat-trick as Queen's Park beat Clyde 4-0 in the Glasgow derby at Lesser Hampden which takes them to within a point of league leaders Queen of the South. 
The Spiders dominated for the majority of the match and were clinical in front of goal although Clyde showed some fighting spirit as the game wore on. 
The away side set the tempo early on with some quick passing and aggressive pressing, using the flanks as their main source of attack. And it was from there that the opening goal arrived after 10 minutes. Gregor Wylie's cross from the right wing was only half cleared by the Clyde defence and Hynes was quickest to react, controlling well before placing the ball into the top corner. 
Clyde responded well and were very nearly level within five minutes, a long pass was cushioned into the path of Connor Lynass by Darren O'Neill but the former's side-foot effort was stopped by the feet of goalkeeper Sam George. 
Hynes and strike partner Ross McPherson were causing problems for the home team's backline with their pace and power working in tandem and McPherson saw one of his attempts from distance saved by keeper Christopher Shaw and another from a similar distance go off-target. 
The Bully Wee almost levelled on the half hour mark when Ciaran McBrearty sent a stunning shot from 30 yards crashing off the crossbar. The midfielder was very unlucky and his team found themselves 2-0 down shortly after when Hynes headed home a free-kick from the left wing to grab his second of the night.

The second period followed a similar pattern to the first with Queen's starting the brighter and their striking duo linked up once again with Hynes cutting back for McPherson but the forward's strike flew over the bar.
Moments later they combined again, this time with Hynes on the receiving end of his partner's cross but his header went wide.
On 56 minutes Hynes had the chance to complete his hat-trick from 12 yards, following a collision in the box the referee pointed to the spot, and he made no mistake coolly slotting home.  
Clyde fought back and for the remainder of the encounter put up a greater fight with chances after that split fairly evenly. Billy Robb tried his luck from long range with a free-kick as did Fraser Sheridan but both to no avail.
At the other end McPherson was desperate to get himself on the scoresheet and was unlucky not to do so when his header flew over after another good cross from the right.
The best chance of the half fell to Clyde's Jack Currie, as he took advantage of a defensive lapse but his attempt narrowly missed the far post.  
Before the end though, Queen's Park added another goal when substitutes Hay and Mortimer combined before the latter expertly lobbed Shaw to make it 4-0.

Star Player
Clyde FC
Queen's Park FC
Fabio Capilano- Despite his side conceding four goals, the defender was solid for much of the game, tidy in possession and constantly looking to contribute in attack from right-back.
Ryan Hynes- Not only did he score three goals which were very well taken, his link-up play and work off the ball was impressive, particularly his movement trying to get in behind the Clyde defence.
Magic Moment
Clyde FC
Queen's Park FC
The effort from Ciaran McBrearty from at least 30 yards in the first half which cannoned off the bar and almost got Clyde on level terms in spectacular fashion.
A drilled pass from his own half by Dale Jones which was inch perfect and played in behind the Clyde defence for his team-mate to run on to and get a shot away which missed the target.
