Sweeney bags the winner

John Sweeney's second-half strike earned Clyde a 2-1 victory at Broadwood Stadium as bottom-placed Stirling's search for an away league win continues.

Stefan McCluskey forced home Gavin Brown's right-wing cross to put the hosts ahead after 21 minutes.

Scott Davidson should have done better when offered a sight of goal in the 61st minute, missing the target when well-placed as the home side started the second-half slowly.

Jim Duffy's men have kept just one clean sheet all season and saw their lead slip once again in the 61st minute when Jordan White got on the end of Brian Allison's cross to nod in an equaliser.

Kevin Watt's right-wing cross picked out Sweeney three minutes later and the midfielder put the hosts back into the lead with a crisp finish.

Loan pair set for Clyde debuts

Clyde have brought in Jamie Lyden and Kevin Nicol on loan and the duo go straight into manager Jim Duffy's plans against bottom club Stirling.

Gavin Brown returns after a hamstring problem and Iain Gray is available after a bout of tonsillitis, however Bryan Gilfillan is a doubt with a knee injury.

Duffy said: "I am pleased to bring Jamie and Kevin in as it will help freshen things up after a disappointing run of results.

"Stirling are playing a lot better now than they were earlier in the season and they carry a decent goal threat. We have not been great defensively for a while but we have the chance to put that right with a shut out in this game."

Stirling have Gary Thom available after suspension and manager Greig McDonald's options have increased with David McClune and Graham Weir also declaring themselves fit after illness.

Jamie McCunnie will miss out due to a sickness bug and Brian Allison has shaken off a knee knock although a lack of recent match time may count against him.

McDonald said: "This would be a terrific game to win as it would pull us closer to Clyde and it would break our away duck for the season. It may also lift us off bottom spot so we will be giving everything to pick up a win.

"We played well against Queens Park and were unfortunate to lose. A repeat of that level of performance would be great start."
