Clyde in home flop
Bully Wee come up short
Clyde slipped further away from the promotion places with around a quarter of the season played after a defeat to Stirling Albion.
It was a short trip down the M80 to Broadwood Stadium for Albion, who picked up a 1-0 victory.
Clyde looked to threaten early on, with Scott Ferguson posing their most potent attacking threat, as he took up the role of lone striker in the opening exchanges.
A ball in from Scott Linton bobbled into the box with a Ferguson header well handled by the keeper.
Scott Linton and Ferguson were combining well, and as Linton squared the ball across the six-yard box, Ferguson was inches away from tapping in for Clyde to take the lead.
However, the visitors had the majority of the possession and nearly scored after Sean Higgins was robbed in midfield after some sloppy play.
A neat ball through split the Bully Wee defence, and as Steven Doris tried to slot the ball past John Gibson, the Clyde man blocked the shot well with his feet.
Stirling continued to dominate play, and after a whipped cross came in, the Clyde defence were caught out and left Stirling striker Sandy Cunningham unmarked, and he calmly slotted the ball past Gibson into the net.
Clyde were reduced to long shots, with the only real chance coming for the home side after a ball in from the left fell to Steven Brisbane, and his shot from the edge of the box deflected narrowly wide.
As Clyde looked to counter- attack, Clyde man Higgins was flattened by Craig Comrie.
It was a clear foul, leading to Comrie receiving a second yellow.
The Bully Wee were unable to break a defensive-minded Stirling down but, after limited chances throughout the game, a long ball into the box in injury time was misjudged by Stirling keeper Smith and left Sean Higgins with an open goal.
After he slotted the ball home, the celebrations of the home support were quickly ended when the linesman flagged for offside.
A disappointing result for Clyde against a Stirling side who had only won two games all season, with a daunting trip to junior side Formartine United in Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup next up.
