Recent respective form guides

Clyde's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Bully Wee have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

St. Johnstone's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Saints's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Clyde find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 13 games have yielded only 12 points. St. Johnstone are leading the way in the Irn Bru Scottish Division One, with their 13 games giving them a return of 26 points.
