East Fife 1-0 Clyde

East Fife went level on points with mid-table Clyde in Scottish League Two with a narrow win over the Bully Wee.

Kevin Smith clipped home from close range, netting the Fifers' first goal since late August.

The hosts continued to be the better side but could not add to their advantage.

Sean Higgins went desperately close to scoring a last-gasp equaliser for Clyde, blasting over the crossbar in stoppage time.
