Gary Naysmith has claimed East Fife players needed to take some responsibility for poor results following their 3-1 defeat to Clyde.
Naysmith’s men continue to stutter through their league campaign and the loss saw them slip outside the promotion play-off zone.
Gaffer Naysmith conceded that the buck stopped with him but said his players also needed to look at themselves.
He said: “I’ve already said to the players that they need to admit responsibility.
“I mucked up last week but they have to be big enough now to come out and say they made mistakes, with the Clyde goals especially.
“What was really disappointing was that once Clyde got their first goal we just folded like a pack of cards.
“We felt sorry for ourselves it’s not good enough.”
The Fifers got off to the best possible start when taking the lead with just a few minutes on the clock.
Scott Smith swung in a corner and it was met by the unmarked Nathan Austin who bulleted home his header.
Ross Campbell almost fired home a second but his effort was blocked before Fife keeper Allan Fleming did well to tip a Brian McQueen header over the bar.
McShane was inches away from netting number two when his drive shaved the post.
Clyde started the second half with a bit more intent and were level when Brian McQueen headed home a Scott Ferguson cross.
Euan Smith completed a turnaround in fortunes for Clyde by firing them ahead from the edge of the area.
The win was wrapped up when Gerard Traynor rifled home a direct free-kick from the edge of the box.
