Clyde prepare to entertain Arbroath at Broadwood Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having chalked up an impressive 25 wins out of 33 previous matches.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Broadwood Stadium was less than a year ago, in April 2010, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Scottish Division Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Clyde's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While Bully Wee have scored 5, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Arbroath's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the The Red Lichties have hit 8 goals, 18 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Clyde find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 12 games have yielded only 6 points. Arbroath are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 23 points from 14 games.
