The numbers tell their own story, and Dumbarton have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 11 goals in total. At the back, Dumbarton have some weaknesses to address. With no two games being the same, we’ll just have to find out if that pattern might continue on in this next match.
Heading into this contest, Dumbarton have not lost to Clyde when they've played them away from home in the last 3 league matches.
Head to head

A lot of goals were also scored during this period, 24 overall at an average of 4 goals per meeting.

Team News: Clyde
The Clyde manager Ian McCall has no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash owing to a completely injury-free group to pick from.
Team News: Dumbarton
Thanks to a largely full-strength group, there’s just the lone fitness worry for the Dumbarton boss Stephen Farrell to be concerned with. Brett Long (Broken ankle) misses out for this game.
We believe that Clyde will have to play well to put one past this Dumbarton team who will likely score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We therefore fancy a 0-1 win for Dumbarton when all is said and done.
Expecting it to be tight.
