Hamilton Accies V Clyde

Saturday is Grand National Day when even the most fervent football follower takes a passing interest in the world's most famous horse race. The winner is not easy to pick with the successful gambler needing more than an ounce of luck sadly now it would seem the same cannot be said of the race for the First Division championship.

Odds on favourites St Mirren would need a disaster of Devon Loch proportions to take the title away from Love Street. Clyde's interest in the promotion race faded in a set of indifferent results at the turn of the year now the Bully Wee are in a two horse race for fourth place with Hamilton.

Clyde boss Graham Roberts is determined to finish as high as possible in the league though has admitted that even finishing fifth would be a tremendous achievement for the squad. To finish in a comfortable mid table position and having experienced two great cup adventures against both sides of the Old Firm will mean that many Clyde fans will cherish the memories from this campaign.

Tomorrow's trip to New Douglas Park gives the Bully Wee a chance to record their first victory over Accies this season as all the previous matches have been drawn and it is likely that tomorrow will be another close encounter.

Manager Graham Roberts has a full squad to choose from and it may be perhaps unlikely that Player assistant boss Joe Miller will get the opportunity to repeat his feat of scoring for the Bully Wee. Miller's goal came in the latter stages when his late header secured a point in a 1-1 draw.

Still there might be more than one Clyde fan who just might fancy a double with Joes Edge tomorrow
