PREVIEW: East Fife v Clyde

The Bully Wee take on East Fife tomorrow, looking to complete a hat-trick of League Two wins against Gary Naysmith’s men this season.

Clyde won the previous encounter at Bayview 1-0, while when the teams met at Broadwood, Barry Ferguson’s men triumphed 3-1.

However, both teams have strengthened since then, with East Fife bolstering their options with the loan signing of Ola Adeyemo from Dundee United and the addition of Sean Dickson from Stenhousemuir.

Despite the two victories earlier this season, Barry Ferguson know his team face a tough 90 minutes. The Clyde boss told the official website:

“We’re not taking anything for granted. The wins against them are in the past and they have picked up in recent weeks. We know it is going to be a hard one.

“We will be prepared because we know it is going to be difficult with the way that they set up and the way that they play. We are under no illusions, it is going to be hard.”

The two managers know each other well, having played together with the national team on a number of occasions. Ferguson continued: “East Fife have been pretty similar to us, Gary has his own ideas, just like myself.

“I know Gary really well and it’s nice to come up against an old playing partner but he’s encountered the same problems I have had, coming into a job and evaluating the squad, you have your own ideas and some players don’t fit into it.”

Scott McManus will miss out due to the injury he collected at Cliftonhill last week, but Mark Roberts will be included in the squad as a trialist for a third and – due to regulations – final time.
