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 4, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Dumbarton's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Sons have hit 7 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Clyde find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 23 games have yielded only 17 points. Dumbarton lie just outside the playoff positions in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Two, picking up 31 from their 25 games so far.
