Clyde 1-0 Stirling Albion

Third-placed Clyde increased their chances of a play-off spot as a Stefan McCluskey goal sunk Stirling Albion.

John Sweeney rattled the post in the opening minute, but Stirling's Alex Cunningham also came close with an effort, shooting just wide.

Sweeney again went close after McCluskey had grabbed got his ninth of the season with a tidy finish.

Michael Daly and Graham Weir both missed good opportunities for both teams in the second half.
