East Stirlingshire 0-1 Clyde

Clyde moved top of Scottish League Two, and remain unbeaten in eight games, after victory over East Stirlingshire.

A solitary second-half strike from Stefan McCluskey was enough to secure all three points for the visitors.

Shire wasted first-half chances, Michael Herd's 12-yard shot gathered by Nikola Rajovic and Chris Townsley heading wide after 20 minutes.

After the break, Clyde's John Sweeney picked out McCluskey six yards out to place his third goal of the season.
