Clyde aim to leapfrog Stirling

Clyde will look to climb over visitors Stirling with victory at Broadwood however they will need to do so without suspended defender Iain Gray.

Bully Wee boss Jim Duffy has doubts over Ryan Frances and John Sweeney, however Ryan MacBeth is available after illness and Brian McQueen is fit to start having come off the bench last weekend after injury.

Duffy said: "We were resolute in our defending to win at Berwick last weekend and it was great to secure such a good win. We will need a similar approach against a Stirling side who are boosted by their own success over Montrose last Saturday."

Third-placed Stirling welcome back Stephen Day from suspension against the side who sit directly underneath them in the table by the virtue of goal difference.

The Forthbank men will however be without Kieran McAnespie, who has an ankle problem, and David Weatherston (hamstring).

Manager Greig McDonald said: "This will be a really tough game as Clyde are a very solid, well organised team. They will be confident after good away performances at Peterhead and Berwick.

"However we are going there after our best performance of the season last weekend when we scored three good goals and saw off Montrose. We want to build on that result and keep heading upwards in the table."
