History of the Clyde v Stranraer fixture

Clyde prepare to entertain Stranraer at Broadwood Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 2 of the 25 previous games, with the Bully Wee winning just 11.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Broadwood Stadium was earlier this season, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Scottish Division Three match.

Recent respective form guides

Clyde's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Bully Wee have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Stranraer's away form is none too clever either, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 8 goals for the The Blues, and 13 goals against.

Clyde find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 18 games have yielded only 10 points. Stranraer are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 41 points from 22 games.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the Bully Wee at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the The Blues come away with an easy victory. Away win
