Bully Wee coast to win

Clyde recorded back-to-back wins in the league for the first time this season with a 3-0 victory over East Stirling.

Steven Jackson upended Brian McQueen in the box to allow John Sweeney to slot Clyde into the lead from the penalty spot in the 19th minute.

Sweeney had the chance to double his tally after Joseph Dingwall's foul on Kieran Brannan, but the striker's second spot-kick was pushed away by Calum Antell.

There was no response from East Stirling and Clyde went further ahead as Sweeney squared the ball to Jack Sloss, who could not miss from six yards.

John Neill rifled a volley into the top corner to complete the victory, East Stirling's mini revival of no defeat in three matches coming to an end.

Illness Marrs Jason's comeback

Clyde defender Jason Marr was set to return against East Stirling after injury but has gone done with illness and is now not expected to take part.

Full-back Gavin Brown will return after his groin problem, but Declan Gallacher and Daniel Fitzpatrick remain out through knocks.

The last time the sides met at Broadwood the Bully Wee won 7-1, but Clyde manager Jim Duffy does not envisage a similar scoreline this time.

He said: "East Stirling have improved a lot since that game and will be desperate to make amends for it. We have also not been very creative in our recent games and found goals harder to come by. I would probably settle for a decent performance and a 1-0 win this time out."

East Stirling welcome back defender David Cane to their squad following an ankle injury and he could well start, as both Michael Hunter and Kevin Turner miss out through suspension.

Ryan Frances is now free of his 14-game ban, but a lack of match action keeps him out, while head coach John Coughlin hopes to exorcise some demons at the home of their opponents.

He said: "We have had a few disappointing days this season but the 7-1 defeat at Clyde was certainly the darkest day of them all.

"We have now gone three games in a row without defeat and our performances have certainly improved. Getting a win in this game would certainly help remove the painful memory of our last visit."
