Kyles Athletic II & Glasgow Mid Argyll II face off in the MKM Building Supplies Bullough Cup Final on Saturday at Strachur.

Read the below stats to get you warmed up for the big fixture!

This stat pack is brought to you thanks to support from:

GMA are scoring an average of 4.42 goals per game and conceding an average of 1.21 goals per game.

Kyles Athletic are scoring an average of 1.71 goals per game and conceding an average of 3.07.

Starting the second with a bang

The stats show that GMA's most potent period of the game is the 15 minutes after half time. Whether that is due to GMA being fitter or tactical tinkering from the Manager it could prove to be a vital 15 minutes come Saturday.

Shut up shop

Impressively, GMA have only conceded 4 second half goals all season, if Kyles are going to get their hands on the trophy again - it seems they might have to do the business in the first half.

Strong final 30

The stats show that Kyles are at their most dangerous in the closing period of the game, in fact 30% of their goals come in the final 15 minutes of a game. This was shown in the recent league encounter between them and GMA, with Kyles bagging two late goals to earn a point.

Too attack minded?

The stats show that Kyles are relatively open throughout the game as they try to play an expansive style of shinty, the rewards can be great (8-1 win vs Ardnamurchan, 6-1 win vs ESA, 4-3 win vs Lochside) but the risk is high too (5-0 loss vs Bute, 6-0 loss vs Lochside, 5-0 loss vs GMA).

Brown bags for Blues

Ross Brown has an incredible 28 goals for GMA II this year with only Craig Morrison (Caberfeidh) having scored more goals across unisex shinty (29).

MacVicar is disciple of goals

Roan MacVicar is Kyles top scorer this year, bagging 33% of their goals this season. He is closely followed by Messrs MacColl, Thornton & Martin.
