PREVIEW: Clyde v Ayr United

Mon, 13th Feb 2017 10:27pm

The Bully Wee will host Ayr United tomorrow night, in a William Hill Scottish Cup Fifth Round replay.

The two clubs met at Somerset Park on Saturday and played out an entertaining 1-1 draw, to set up a second match at Broadwood. The winner will earn a trip to Hearts or Hibs in the Quarter-Final stage, with the two Edinburgh clubs facing their own replay next week.

For Clyde, midfielder Jordan McMillan is a major doubt to take part in the match, after leaving the field with an ankle injury on Saturday.

Speaking to the official website this evening, Barry Ferguson said:-

"Jordan is a massive player for me and he's desperate to play in the game, but there's no way that I can risk putting him out for a number of weeks. He was still sore today but we'll see how he is tomorrow and make a decision from there."

On loan Scott Lochhead is also doubtful with a minor injury, with Ryan Finnie and Marc McKenzie cup tied again. John Gibson, however, returns from suspension.

On the match, Barry continued:-

"We will maybe change our gameplan slightly from Saturday, but we know that we are still big underdogs in the match. Ayr are a Championship team who have had some very good results in that league, including away from home, so we know how much of a challenge it's going to be again.

"We also know that it's a great opportunity to get the club into the Quarter-Finals for the first time in a number of years, to meet Hibs or Hearts who I consider to be really big clubs. I really enjoyed playing at those stadiums and they are the sort of places that the boys should aspire to playing at.

"We're going to give it our all and go out to get the win."

Kick-off is at 7.45pm and, if required, extra-time and penalties will be played to determine a winner.
