Binos boss Greig McDonald could hardly believe Stirling Albion left Broadwood empty-handed on Saturday as Clyde held on for a 2-1 victory.
Goals from David Marsh and Scott Ferguson had the Bully Wee in control at half-time but Bradley Coyne pulled one back with his first Albion goal. In a frantic finish, Chris Smith was denied by the woodwork and Clyde keeper Jamie Barclay somehow diverted Coyne’s free-kick over the bar.
McDonald said: “I can’t quite believe we haven’t come away with a draw. The second-half performance was what we want from the players. We battered them and created lots of chances. Their keeper kept them in it in the second half and I don’t know how he made that save from Bradley Coyne at the end.
“I don’t think we were outplayed in the first half but we gave away two bad goals and that has cost us in the end. The good thing is that the league is still really tight and we have the chance to get ourselves right up there against Albion Rovers on Tuesday.”
Clyde manager Jim Duffy said: “We were magnificent in the first half. We played some great football and could have been three or four up but we knew Stirling would come out strongly in the second half and Graham Weir gave them a different dimension. They got a goal back and we started making some poor decisions but we dug in and our keeper had a magnificent save at the end.”
