Livi Lions' Den Awaits

Clyde face a tough task against Livingston at Almondvale tomorrow. Colin Hendry will take his side to West Lothian hoping for the club's first away win of the season and he spoke to this afternoon as he took care of some final preparations ahead of the match:-

"It's about taking things on a game to game basis and tomorrow is going to be very difficult. Mark Proctor is an excellent coach with a lot of experience in the game. They've done well recently and, generally, if results are good then the performances have matched them.

"I would class our form in the last few weeks as decent. Football managers are never 100% happy! I was, however, delighted last week for everyone involved with the club that we won a match that we weren't supposed to, especially in the manner that we did."

The Bully Wee Manager was well aware that the fans are desperate to see new signing Evangelino Valentim in action but was also keen to point out the positives to be taken from his debut being delayed:-

"A winning team at this level will usually pick itself but our players are now turning up not certain if they will be playing or not. We have players on the sidelines that are ready to come in if need be but there's no automatic selection now.

"Evangelino is still a young lad and is fairly inexperienced. It's going to be a very steep learning curve for him. There's no doubt though that with the attributes he has it can change the way you try to play the game. Generally the outlet we have is pace without a lot of stature - he brings something different to that if it's required."

Despite the squad now being in a much healthier state, Colin concluded by stating that work to bring players to Broadwood was by no means finished until the next transfer window:-

"We're still looking to add. I'm still sifting through players that are out of contract and looking at people in training so who knows? Something could still happen in the coming weeks but now a lot depends on the fitness levels of the players that are available."

Clyde supporters will be situated in the East Stand at Almondvale tomorrow, with prices set at £16 for adults and £7 for concessions (over-65s and under-16s).
