History of the Clyde v Arbroath fixture

Clyde play host to Arbroath at Broadwood Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having taken all the points from 24 of the 31 contests.

The last time the two teams met at Clyde was back in May 2003, over five years ago, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-2 thriller, in a Scottish Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Clyde's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Bully Wee have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Arbroath's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. These low-scoring games have seen just 5 goals scored and conceded.

Clyde find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 15 games have yielded only 12 points. Arbroath are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 16 points from 15 matches.
