Waiting Time

Billy Reid was today playing a waiting game in preparation for tonight's clash with Falkirk. "Without a doubt we have a few problems and it'll be closer to kick off time before I know who is able to play, who is fit enough for the bench and who will miss out all together."

At times of late it seems, especially among the fans, as if an air of despondency has landed on Broadwood, a claim that isn't wholly disputed by the Clyde boss, "My players were down after the match on Saturday. They aren't used to getting beaten and it is a feeling that they do not like. Key decisions went against us on that day but we need to move on. I never have any complaints about the players' work rate or attitude and they will not disappoint tonight either."

"It was interesting to see John O'Neill comment this morning that the fixture list had helped Falkirk," Billy continued, "and we are feeling the affects of that now, but we have a lot to be proud of this season. Our aim is to finish in the top two and if we can do that as well as having reached the quarter finals of the Scottish Cup then we can reflect on what has been a remarkable season."

Billy did not hesitate in giving credit to Falkirk, "They have done very well this season and tonight will certainly be a tough test but we will put out our strongest team. Falkirk are obviously a bigger club than us, with more money and a subsequent larger squad but in head-to-head matches we have managed to compete well and that has to be our aim again this evening."
