Clyde took a share of the points from their visit to Stirling on Saturday.

Bully Wee boss Jim Duffy made some changes to the side, bringing Giuseppe Capuano, Michael Daly and Stef McCluskey into the starting line-up.

After a slow start Clyde eventually began to take control of the game and created several chances.

Michael Daly missed two chances to put his side ahead and both Scott Ferguson and Stef McCluskey had shots blocked by Stirling’s keeper.

The Bully Wee took the lead just before the break when John Sweeney latched on to a knock-down by Daly and after his first shot was blocked by Crawford he sent the ball into the net from close range.

Stirling gradually came into the game as the second half wore on and the equaliser came when Graham Weir pounced on a loose ball and fired it into the net.

Daly then had a header stopped by Crawford, Stirling came close before Marsh cleared, and Sweeney had an effort blocked late in the game, but there was no more scoring.
