Barry Ferguson spoke to the official website today, for a brief update ahead of a ‘blank weekend’ for The Bully Wee.
With the club having no match to take part in, the Clyde manager explained that he had taken the opportunity to adjust the training schedule:-
“We gave the players a few days off this week. We thought long and hard about it and felt that it was the best thing to do. Four or five players have been playing with niggles for a few weeks, so it was a good chance to let them clear up.
“The boys have also worked really hard to get through a difficult patch so, overall, we felt that it was important to give them some rest – and a bit of time away from me harping on at them! I was able to take in a couple of extra matches at night so it was good from that point of view.
“We decided against playing a friendly over the weekend, but we will be in for a full training session and then back to normal next week, as we start to prepare for the East Stirling match.”
Barry also looked back on last weekend’s superb result at Berwick Rangers:-
“It was pleasing as we dealt with the situation you get at Berwick, as I talked about before the game. It’s a difficult surface to play on but the players did everything I asked of them.
“It’s only one result though and we definitely won’t get carried away. We’ll keep preparing well and aim for the consistency that we’ve been speaking about.”
