History of the Cowdenbeath v Clyde fixture

Clyde travel to take on Cowdenbeath at Central Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bully Wee will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The last time the two teams met at Cowdenbeath was way back in the black-and-white days of July 1981, where Clyde annihilated the Bully Wee 0 - 4 in a Scottish Division Two match.
