McManus Aims for Strong Finish

Clyde forward Scott McManus spoke to the media following Saturday’s 1-0 win over East Fife at Broadwood.

Scott was modest about his own display but pleased with the team effort and getting his name on the scoresheet:-

“I thought it was a poor performance from myself, but as a team we worked really hard and got the result we wanted. We grew into the game and I think we shaded it overall.

“The gaffer took us through a set piece on Thursday night that had me at the back post. When the corner came over I saw that there was no-one near me, all I had to do was put it away and thankfully I did it.”

The 24-year-old is The Bully Wee’s top scorer this season but he admitted that he’d had a frustrating time recently:-

“I’ve scored nine goals now, but since the turn of the year I’ve had a few injuries which have held me back a bit. I also had a virus recently so it was great for the gaffer to give me a start today. I was starting to feel a bit leggy in the second half and I also took a knock just before we scored, but it’s 70 minutes in the tank and I’ll train hard this week.

“Hopefully I can get a run of games until the end of the season and add a few more goals.”

Scott concluded with a positive message from the dressing room about the remaining four matches of the campaign:-

“Saturday’s results have tightened up the table and it gives us something to aim at. We’ll treat the next four games like cup finals and see where it takes us. The boys are certainly up for it, we’re coming off two wins now and we’ll have to take that through to the end of the season to give us an opportunity.”
