Graham Weir earned Albion an important point with a 69th-minute equaliser against a Clyde side who remain unbeaten away from home since August.
The Bully Wee stay second in League 2 while we slip to sixth place ahead of next weekend’s local derby with East Stirlingshire at Forthbank.
Binos boss Greig McDonald made three changes to the team beaten 3-1 at Peterhead, with Ross McGeachie, Danny Ashe and Weir coming in for Sandy Cunningham, Dale Fulton and the suspended Luca Gasparotto, while there was a place on the bench for U19 player Reece Boyle.
Clyde were much the better team in the first half and Michael Daly missed a sitter, blazing the ball over from six yards, before sponsors’ man of the match David Crawford made a superb save to keep out a shot from Stefan McCluskey.
Weir had an early effort saved and we almost took the lead following a corner late in the first half but Jim Duffy’s men deservedly went ahead in 44 minutes when skipper John Sweeney fired home from close range after a good initial stop from Crawford.
The introduction of Cunningham and Fulton early in the second period lifted Stirling and Weir, who had earlier been thwarted by Nik Rajovic, beat the Clyde keeper with a powerful low drive for his second goal of the season after making space in the area.
That set up a frantic closing quarter to the match – Cunningham just failed to convert at the back post after White’s header had been saved and the teenager was narrowly off target after latching on to a White knock-down as Rajovic rushed out.
Sweeney wasted a great opportunity for Clyde when he delayed too long and allowed Crawford to snuff out the danger and we almost won it in the last minute when Cunningham did brilliantly on the left and his cross was headed inches wide as an entertaining encounter ended all square.
