Clyde 3-1 East Stirlingshire

All the goals came in the second half as Clyde overcame East Stirlingshire in League Two at Broadwood Stadium.

Sean Higgins opened matters with a smart shot past Richard Barnard.

Within seconds, Conor Greene deflected Scott Linton's shot unluckily past his own goalkeeper and there was no way back for the Ochilview Park side.

Nathan Shepherd halved the deficit following an uncleared dead ball, but Higgins planted home a fine free kick to settle the match.
