Scottish League Two: East Stirlingshire 0-3 Clyde

Clyde gained revenge for their surprise home defeat by bottom side East Stirlingshire a week ago with a convincing victory.

Home goalkeeper Richard Barnard had been kept busy before David Marsh rose to nod Jon-Paul McGovern's cross home.

Sean Higgins atoned for an earlier miss by converting Marsh's pass.

Scott Durie's curling finish secured the win before home trialist John Fraser departed on the back of a second yellow card.

The keeps the Bully Wee in fourth place and within six points of Elgin City after the leaders defeated Stirling Albion 2-1, while Shire find themselves five points adrift at the bottom after Berwick Rangers leapfrogged opponents Arbroath with a 3-0 win.
