Stefan McCluskey scored the only goal as our play-off hopes took another dent with a second defeat of the season in Cumbernauld.
We remain fourth in the table but have now fallen seven points behind Clyde, a week after we lost to another of our play-off rivals, East Stirlingshire.
Greig McDonald’s men played some good stuff in the first half but paid the price for a defensive error and we rarely looked like recovering during a desperately disappointing second period.
We have now taken only two points out a possible 12 since the beginning of March after this latest setback on a typically cold and windy afternoon at Broadwood.
McDonald made one change to the team that drew 1-1 with Elgin in midweek. Skipper Jamie Bishop returned in place of Phil Johnston as Ross McGeachie moved to the right flank in a 3-5-2 formation.
We almost fell behind inside 60 seconds when Stephen Day was caught in possession but John Sweeney thundered his shot against the post.
Sandy Cunningham was our biggest threat in the first half and came close to the opener when he fired narrowly wide of the far post before the teenager sent Jordan White clear but our top scorer was thwarted by Clyde keeper Jamie Barclay.
It was an open game and David Crawford made a terrific save to deny McCluskey from close range but we were undone in 43 minutes when the same player latched on to a careless pass from Graham Weir and rounded Crawford to score.
Dale Fulton replaced Day at the break but Albion’s play in the second half lacked drive and direction and Clyde could have killed the game off had they been more clinical.
Weir came close with a late effort but Jim Duffy’s men notched up a third straight win as we failed to score for the fourth time in our last five away games.
