Recent respective form guides

East Fife's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Fifers have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Clyde is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. While the Bully Wee have hit 5 goals, 16 have hit the back of the wrong net.

East Fife see themselves just below half way in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Two, showing a record of 7 points from their 6 games played so far, Clyde are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 4 points from 6 matches.
