PREVIEW: Forfar Athletic v Clyde

Thu, 20th Apr 2017 3:23pm

The Bully Wee will travel to Station Park tomorrow, for another significant match as the Ladbrokes League 2 season nears its conclusion.

The Loons, currently leading the table by a point, have registered two wins and a draw in the previous meetings of the clubs this season, although all of the matches were closely fought affairs.

For Clyde, Chris Smith is suspended and he'll be joined on the sidelines by Phil Johnston, who was substituted early last week due to injury. However, Ross Perry comes back into contention.

Joint interim manager, JP McGovern spoke to the official website this afternoon:-

"There is obviously a lot of importance and relevance in the match for both sides. Forfar are top and looking to get over the line, but looking at last week's results, we know how important it could be for us. It's fine lines at the moment. 

"We are going to try and win the game, we won't have any other approach. 

"As we've said before, it's up to the players to prove that they are better than what has happened across the season overall. Last week, there was a refusal to accept what was happening when we were behind and a belief that we could get back into the game. Hopefully that was a turning point for us - it was a big step forward and the players deserve credit for that.

"There was a buzz about the place last week and I hear that a lot of supporters are travelling up tomorrow, using their day off and their wages to support the club. First and foremost, we will compete and work as hard as we can; I think fans appreciate it when they see that."

Admission prices at Station Park are; £13/7 for the stand, £12/6 for the terracing.
