It’s a first away game as Stirling Albion boss for Kevin Rutkiewicz as we make the short journey to Cumbernauld to play Clyde on Saturday.
Team news: Michael McIndoe is set to play as a trialist for the second time after an impressive performance against Berwick last weekend. On-loan Dundee keeper Calum Ferrie and strikers Mark Stewart and Peter MacDonald remain on the injury list but last season’s top scorer Darren Smith returned to the squad last week.
Recent meetings: Clyde won 3-0 at Forthbank in August, helped by a double from Ally Love. The Bully Wee also came out on top in our last visit to Broadwood in April – Danny Jardine scored our goal but a Jack Boyle double won it for Danny Lennon’s men.
Opponents: After losing to Queen’s Park, Cowdenbeath (in the Scottish Cup) and Peterhead during October, Clyde got back on track last week, ending Edinburgh City’s 12-match winning run with a 1-0 victory at Ainslie Park. The Bully Wee are third in the Ladbrokes League 2 table, with seven wins and four draws from their 11 matches.
Referee: Lloyd Wilson
Admission prices: Adults £14, concessions £9, U12s free (when accompanied by an adult). U12 tickets should be collected from the Clyde matchday office before entering via the turnstiles. The office is situated in the pod at the south end of the Main Stand.

All other vehicles will be directed to the West Stand car park. Additional car parking will be provided behind the South and West stands. Post-match, all vehicles in the Main Stand car park will leave the stadium via the away car park at the West end of the ground, to improve the traffic flow and speed up the exit process.
