Brown Looking For Steel

Wed, 26th Aug 2009 1:44pm

Clyde boss John Brown spoke to www.clydefc.co.uk last night, ahead of a busy weekend. After the visit of in-form Alloa to Broadwood on Saturday, the transfer window will close on Tuesday.

"Ideally I’d still like to get in one or two more players, especially guys with experience and a bit of steel about them," John said. "That is what we are lacking and Neil and I are discussing what we can do about that.

"We’ve had a few trialists in and we will continue to look to improve the team but it all has to be done within the budget."

Ex-Rangers midfielder Willie McLachlan is one of those guests who has already impressed the Clyde support, but regulations state he cannot play in any more matches for the Bully Wee as a trialist. John continued:-

"Willie wants full-time football but surprisingly has not been signed up by anyone. If that continues to be the case and he accepts our wage structure then I’d love to get him but we will have to wait and see.

"He has done well and has been an asset to us with his delivery from set pieces.”

Finally, John revealed some early team news ahead of the Wasps match and an update on the goalkeeping situation:-

"Callum Reidford is now suspended - he is well aware that his reaction was not right and the team paid the price for his moment of madness. Jordan (Allan) came on and replaced him but developed a calf injury during the game and we will just have to monitor how he progresses through the week.

"As a precaution I ran the rule over a trialist keeper at training on Tuesday night. Meanwhile, Mark Casey is doubtful with a hamstring injury which limits our options in defence again."
