History of the Clyde v East Stirlingshire fixture

Clyde play host to East Stirlingshire at Broadwood Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Bully Wee are clearly on top, having won 11 and lost only 2 of the 18 games.

The last time the two teams met at Clyde was way back in the black-and-white days of July 1977, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Scottish Division Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Clyde's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Bully Wee have scored 6, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

East Stirling's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. The Shire have conceded 7 goals in these games, and only hit 2 in reply.

Clyde find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 10 games have yielded only 6 points. East Stirling are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 8 points from 10 matches.
