History of the Livingston v Clyde fixture

Livingston play host to Clyde at Almondvale Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 10 of the 26 previous games, with the Livi winning just 8.

The last time the two teams met at Livingston was back in May 2001, over five years ago, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Scottish Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Livingston's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. A generous 7 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Clyde's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. The Bully Wee's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Livingston's 24 points from 16 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position. Clyde see themselves just below half way in the Bells Scottish Division One, showing a record of 22 points from their 16 games played so far,
