Andy Feels Draw Was Fair

Mon, 6th Nov 2017 8:24pm

Loan signing Andy Munro took time to speak to the media following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Stenhousemuir at Ochilview in Ladbrokes League 2.

The 24-year-old started with some thoughts on the match and The Bully Wee's gameplan:-

"Today was the first time we have played a back three with wing backs, but it didn't really work in the first half. The manager brought us in at half-time and calmed us right down, to try and get us on the front foot. I thought in the second half that happened and it gave us a bit more joy when we pressed the game higher up the park. We got a bit of a scrappy goal, but we'll take it as we were the better side for large parts of the second half.

"We worked on the back three on Thursday night. If I’m honest, I love playing a back three, especially when I'm in the middle, because I'm just sweeping up everything. It was difficult though, as it's the first time we've used it all season and not many teams in this league play it. We were hanging on a bit at the end there, but I thought a draw was a fair result.

"The boys had a point to prove today. Last week the fans were on our backs and rightly so, as you shouldn't be conceding four goals at home."

The defender spoke about the change of management team last week, with Tony McNally stepping in as interim manager:-

"It’s a new voice in the dugout with fresh ideas. Tony and Ian are good guys… both characters I’ll tell you that! It's difficult though because I’ve got a lot of time for Jim and John. If it wasn't for them I’d probably be sitting in the stand at Forfar, so I can only say thanks to them for bringing me in.

"Tony's brought in some fresh ideas and he's a footballing geek - studies it a lot. Sometimes a young, enthusiastic guy can help."

Munro also praised the travelling support at Ochilview:-

"The fans were fantastic. They're the best fans in League 2 and I’d go as far as to say Clyde are the biggest club in League 2 in terms of fan base and facilities. They showed up in numbers and made a lot of noise."
