Clyde looking for home advantage

Clyde are hoping that home advantage goes in their favour again when East Stirlingshire visit but they will be without the injured David Marsh (knee) and Sean Fitzharris (hamstring).

Stefan McCluskey has returned to training after an ankle injury however he is unlikely to be risked.

"We beat the Shire twice at our place last season and they won the games at their place," manager Jim Duffy said. "We are hoping that the sequence continues and we pick up what would be our third win at home this season.

"The Shire have improved but they were already a better side than their points tally last season indicated. We need to play well."

East Stirlingshire lost their perfect record in League 2 this season when they lost to Peterhead in their last game and they have a fit again Jamie Glasgow available to help them recover at Clyde's Broadwood home.

Knee injuries continue to keep long-term absentees Rhys Devlin and Nathan Shepherd out with a groin problem ruling Michael Herd out.

Head coach John Coughlin said: "Our second half showing against Peterhead was very disappointing especially as we lost four goals in a 20 minute spell.

"Clyde have been strong at home all season so we cannot afford to play like that again or we will get the same outcome."
