Forfar Athletic 4-3 Clyde

David Cox's last-minute goal saw Forfar come from behind late on to re-establish their League Two lead with victory over Clyde.

Gavin Swankie opened the scoring with a fine finish before goals from Ewan McNeil and David Gormley put Clyde ahead.

Martyn Fortheringham equalised, but Peter MacDonald's penalty looked to have won the points for the visitors.

Jim Lister's header levelled matters, before Cox lashed in a winner.
