Stirling Albion make the short journey to Broadwood on Saturday to play Clyde, as we look to improve on a run of four defeats in our last five matches.
Kevin Rutkiewicz: “We didn’t show enough hunger against Albion Rovers last week and they deserved to win. It’s another hard game against Clyde and the players are going to have to dust themselves down.”
Team news: Darren Smith, who is our joint-top league scorer along with Dylan Mackin on eight goals, serves the second part of a two-game ban. Midfielder Kevin Moon this week left the club while defenders Evan Horne and Jordan McGregor have both missed the last four games due to injury.
Recent meetings: Clyde coasted to a 3-0 win at Forthbank in August and were 1-0 winners at the end of February when David Goodwillie scored the only goal. It was 1-1 at Broadwood in November – Danny Jardine opened the scoring but Dylan Cogill equalised in stoppage time.
Opponents: Clyde are third in the table and on course for the play-offs. Their title hopes suffered a big blow last weekend when their long unbeaten run ended with a 2-1 defeat at Elgin and they were effectively docked four points by the SPFL for fielding an ineligible player in two recent games.
