Peterhead will be wanting a better result here after the 0-1 Challenge Cup loss in their previous game against East Fife.

Looking at their form, and Clyde have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, conceding 11 goals in total. At the back, Clyde could really do with shoring things up.
Going into this encounter, Clyde are without an away win for the past 4 league games.

Team News: Peterhead
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Peterhead manager Jim McInally to contend with due to a largely intact group. Gary Fraser (Knee Injury) won’t play.
Team News: Clyde
Thanks to a fully healthy group to choose from, the Clyde manager Danny Lennon does not have any fitness worries to report before this match.
Our assessment is that Clyde and Peterhead should both get enough opportunities to score, although it’s hard to separate the two.
Little in this one, and it’s almost too close to call. We therefore think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of the 90 minutes.
