Scott Linton at the double for Clyde at Stirling

Ten-man Clyde held on for all three points as two second-half penalties from Scott Linton sealed a 2-1 comeback victory in a mid-table Scottish League Two clash with Stirling at the Forthbank Stadium.

Either side could have taken the lead in the early exchanges with numerous chances going begging, but it was the hosts that took the initiative as Steven Doris slotted into the bottom corner just after the half-hour mark.

David Marsh was denied an equaliser two minutes later as his weak header was held out but Linton made no mistake five minutes after the break, coolly converting from the spot - conceded by Ross Smith for handball - as he picked out the bottom-right corner to level matters.

Linton stepped up again to score his second spot-kick 20 minutes later, this time Philip Johnston was the culprit as the away side took the lead, while Mark McLaughlin saw red with six minutes remaining after he was shown a second yellow card for a bad foul on Lewis McLear.
