Brechin Return for Pair

Fri, 13th Nov 2009 12:34pm

Clyde travel to Brechin City on Second Division duty tomorrow, boosted by the news that two players are returning to the squad.

Marvyn Wilson is back after suspension and an ankle injury, with Dave McKay also ready to return to action following a lengthy absence.

Striker Willie Sawyers, who struggled in last week's Cowdenbeath match, is fit to play. He has a niggling knee condition which may require an operation in future, but last week's injury was unrelated and he came through both this week's training sessions successfully.

New loan signing Jordan White could be involved alongside his Dunfermline team-mate Lee Graham.

The Bully Wee's only doubt is Steven Howarth, who has been struggling with a virus.

Supporters' Bus Information

John Brown spoke to www.clydefc.co.uk as he prepared for the trip, following a disappointing home defeat last week:-

"The spirit has been good and we go up to Brechin determined to get three points. It is important that we start with the right tempo. I can’t fault the players for their attitude but we need to get better at creating chances and hopefully we will get the rub of the green to get that important first goal.

"I didn’t think there was a great deal between us and Cowdenbeath last week, or in the previous match at Central Park, and they are now top of the league. We kept working away, but this is what we’ve been given to work with; the financial restraints at the club and everything else. If Danny Lennon can go out and pay a decent wage and get a bit of experience then he’ll do it.

"Jordan White comes into the squad. Both he and Lee (Graham) are maybe raw but their attitude is right - others have had their opportunity but not came up to the mark and we needed to change things.”

One player who attracted attention was Steven Odunewu, after the second half sub was later substituted himself...

"The fans gave me stick for bringing Steven off, but I gave myself more stick for putting him on in the first place. He wasn’t working for the team. I knew it would get a reaction but he was just sauntering around. He has all the energy to burn but wasn’t playing for the team we need to change things to get a winning formula and put the opposition under pressure.

"Fans have got to keep the faith. I know they are frustrated but if you get a couple of results then it can make all the difference in this league."
