Recent respective form guides

East Stirlingshire need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Shire have scored 7, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Clyde's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Bully Wee have hit 6 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

East Stirlingshire are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 18 points from 20 matches.

Clyde see themselves just below half way in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Three, showing a record of 23 points from their 20 games played so far,
