History of the Airdrie United v Clyde fixture

Airdrie Utd. prepare to entertain Clyde at Shyberry Excelsior Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 31 of the 83 previous games, with the The Diamonds winning just 29.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Shyberry Excelsior Stadium was less than a year ago, in January 2006, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Scottish Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Airdrie United's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While The Diamonds have scored 6, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Clyde's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Bully Wee's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 8 goals for and 7 against.

Airdrie Utd. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 4 points from 8 matches. Clyde see themselves just below half way in the Bells Scottish Division One, showing a record of 9 points from their 7 games played so far,
