A not to be missed top end of the table affair this afternoon as Elgin City, second in League Two, travel to Cumbernauld to face Barry Ferguson’s third-placed Clyde.
Clyde come into this fixture just four points behind leaders Forfar Athletic and three points behind today’s opponents, although they do have a game in hand on the latter. The Broadwood club enjoyed an unbeaten October in all competitions despite only winning one of their three league games with the other two ending in stalemate. Ferguson’s side have struggled a little with consistency in the league this season having won five, drawn three and lost two from their first ten games.
Jim Weir’s Elgin City side know that if they were to win today and other results went their way they would leapfrog Forfar to the top of the table and the Highlanders could not come into this important fixture in better form; four wins on the bounce and five, four and three goals in their last three outings respectively.
Goals should be expected in this one, especially from the visitors who are League Two’s top scorers with 24 goals and have scored 14 goals in their last four games in all competitions, with 11 of those being scored while on their travels. Although Clyde have enjoyed success over Elgin recently having won each of their last four meetings, including a 2-0 win last month thanks to goals from Sean Higgins and Peter MacDonald. Since that game however, Elgin have been in much better form and with both sides being so close to the table’s summit there is all to play for in a game that is far too close to call.
