After two successive away games we return to Central Park on Saturday afternoon when we face Clyde in the battle of the two bottom sides.
The Bully Wee sit four points above us in the League Two table with both sides having six games remaining and we will be looking to build on our 2-0 win at Broadwood Stadium a week past Tuesday.
In the previous three encounters between the sides this season we lead the series 2-1 in wins after losing the first game at Broadwood 5-3 back in August we won the return game at Central Park in early December 1-0.
This was the last time we won a game at Central Park and the subsequent eight home games have yielded only a point in a 1-1 draw with Elgin last month and manager Gary Locke will be looking for a more positive result on home soil following two away wins since he was announced as boss last month.
After that game our visitors sat in third place in the table but a run of only one win and three draws in their subsequent 16 league games has seen them slip down the table.Manager Barry Ferguson resigned from his position in late February and was replaced on an interim basis by senior players Peter MacDonald and Jon Paul McGovern.
Ahead of this weekend's game the Bully Wee announced three additions to their squad both Kyle Gourlay and Kerr Waddell were signed on loan from Dundee on Thursday and the 18 year old's will go straight into their squad along with former Scotland internationalist David Goodwillie who signed a short term deal on Friday after leaving Plymouth Argyle in January.
