the injured Phil Johnston as Clyde made two changes to their line-up on Saturday.
Forfar dominated the first half and there was little surprise when the Loons took the lead in the 21st minute. Danny Denholm used his pace to get away from Ewan McNeil at the back post and head home from Jim Lister’s assist.
Clyde were restricted to long-range efforts and Lister could have doubled the home side’s lead but he shot wide. Malone then saw his shot saved by Gourley.
Forfar started the second half as they ended the first and doubled their lead within seven minutes of the restart. David Cox managed to scramble the ball over the line to make it 2-0.
With 11 minutes left Forfar made it three when Thomas O’Brien headed home. Denholm then struck a post.
McNiff, Higgins and Goodwillie all had late efforts as Clyde looked for a consolation but to no avail.
McDonald said: “You would have liked to think coming up here on the back of two victories we would be looking forward to the game, which we were.
“But I have got to give credit to Forfar, they were decent today, got in about us and were an extra yard ahead of us.”
