Stirling Albion manager Dave Mackay admits a below-par performance allowed Clyde to claim a 3-2 win at Forthbank on Saturday, ending our 100% record.
Peter MacDonald and Callumn Morrison scored for the Binos but the Bully Wee struck through David Goodwillie, Mark Burbidge and Barry Cuddihy to take the points.
We remain top of the Ladbrokes League 2 table going into this weekend’s match against Montrose at Links Park but Mackay said: “We didn’t really get going at all and we can’t have any real complaints about the result. We said we had to deal with David Goodwillie but we didn’t do it and he ran riot.
“The goals we lost were criminal but Clyde are a decent team and they will do all right this season. There are no excuses – we just didn’t perform. We’ve had one or two blips so far, against Falkirk and Montrose, and we have responded well to them so hopefully it will be the same this time.”
Clyde boss Jim Chapman said: “David Goodwillie is a real asset and you can see we are a threat going forward. I just wish we would take a greater percentage of our chances and we still need to work on things defensively. We’ve played better this season and lost but it’s a new group of players still gelling and there is more to come.”
