Arbroath 0-1 Clyde

Chris Smith's early header was enough for Clyde to claim a slim victory at basement boys Arbroath.

The defender nodded in a Chris Mitchell corner to claim his first goal for the club.

Arbroath saw Andy Ryan's free-kick saved by Clyde goalkeeper John Gibson, who also foiled Darren Ramsay.

Opposite number Allan Fleming prevented Sean Higgins before Arbroath were denied a point when Craig Watson's header hit a post.
