PREVIEW: Clyde v Stirling Albion

The Bully Wee will host Stirling Albion at Broadwood tomorrow, as the Ladbrokes League 2 campaign continues to race towards its finale.

The match will be the sixth meeting of the clubs this season, with the honours currently shared evenly across both league and cup competitions; a win each and three draws.

For Clyde, Ross Perry is expected to return from injury and he will be joined by Martin McNiff and David Gormley, both available again after suspension.

Kevin Rutkiewicz, who came on as a substitute against Cowdenbeath on Tuesday night, will again be included in the squad as a trialist. Speaking about the central defender, joint interim manager JP McGovern said:-

“Kevin has been training with us for two or three months and played in bounce matches, so his introduction hasn’t just been a recent thing. He’s a very experienced player and a good talker on the pitch – the type of person that we want around the team at the moment.”

Two or three players, however, are rated as doubtful to take part.

Looking ahead to the match, McGovern continued:-

“Stirling have had five wins in a row and they’ve got a good young manager in Dave Mackay. He’s made a few changes and credit to him for the way he has turned things around there.

“We are focussing on ourselves though. We had a mixed night on Tuesday – we started fairly well but a few things went against us before half-time and we maybe let the heads go down a bit because it didn’t seem to be our night. That can’t come into it now though, there are no excuses.

“The boys need to be strong together and be brave in lots of different ways, whether that is making a tackle or taking an extra touch of the ball. We don’t believe that we should be where we are in the table but it’s time to go out and prove it now, there’s no point in just keeping on saying it.”
