VALE are clinging onto the Lowland League top spot with their fingernails following a decisive defeat to Edinburgh City on Saturday.

This was the Victoria Park outfit’s first loss in the new league and they now have Gretna 2008 and Spartans, both with a game in hand, snapping at their heels.

Second-half goals from Ian McFarland and Peter Stenhouse sealed the deal for the City men last weekend with a consolation goal from Eddie Mearns coming too late for the host team.
