Ross Forsyth earned us a point against title favourites Clyde, with the draw probably a fair result at Forthbank.
The full-back swept the ball home from a Bryan Hodge corner 11 minutes from time, just seven minutes after his short header back to Chris Smith had allowed substitute Sean Higgins to lob the keeper for the opening goal.
We ended the game with 10 men after Ross Smith saw red for a second yellow card in stoppage time, following an altercation with Higgins, although it took referee Alan Newlands a few moments to realise he had already booked the defender.
Binos boss Stuart McLaren made three changes to the team beaten 3-2 at Annan on the opening day of the season, with Chris Smith, Ross Smith and Ross McMillan replacing Cammy Binnie, Scott Davidson and Jamie Mills.
Clyde, who kicked off with a 2-1 victory over Montrose and who won twice at Forthbank last season, included ex-Bino Phil Johnston but Chris Smith was on the bench.
The visitors started brightly and the lively Dylan Easton had a shot blocked but we came more into things and the best chance of the half fell to Darren Smith but John Gibson pulled off a good save from close range.
Eddie Ferns fired just wide from 20 yards after linking with Darren Smith while Matty Flynn nodded over from a Scott Linton long throw at the other end but in general neither keeper was over-worked.
Clyde hit the front when Higgins pounced on Forsyth’s error and Easton then fired narrowly over but Forsyth levelled with his first goal in over a year.
