Barry Takes Heart from Team Spirit

Following Saturday’s frustrating defeat at Elgin City on Saturday, Barry Ferguson reflected on the game after tonight’s training session. The Clyde boss said:-

“We were bitterly disappointed to lose the game, but I couldn’t fault the commitment of the players.

“After conceding a penalty in the fourth minute, we put that behind us and I thought it was an even first half. Early in the second half, they went down to ten men; we had only five minutes with the extra man before we lost Scott Durie but I thought that’s when we really showed our character. When we then lost John Gibson to a red card, I thought we actually stepped up the pressure and their keeper had an inspired second half. 

“We also started with a depleted squad but I think we proved that our attitude and spirit cannot be questioned.”

Barry concluded by looking ahead to returning to Broadwood on Saturday and asked the club’s supporters to stick by the team:-

“We now need to prepare for Berwick Rangers, who had a good result tonight against Annan, but if we show the same spirit that we did at Elgin, and the fans get right behind us, then we can get the win we badly need to get back on track.”
