The final match of the 2017 calendar tomorrow sees The Bully Wee travel to the capital, for a Ladbrokes League 2 match against Edinburgh City.
Despite today’s wintry weather, Edinburgh are hopeful that the match will go ahead, with the Ainslie Park pitch to be checked again early tomorrow by club officials.
For Clyde, Kieran Duffie returns after missing last week’s match against Berwick Rangers due to illness.
Writing for the official website today, Danny Lennon emphasised his positive view on recent matches and the changes being shown in the performances of the team:-
“I have been involved in football my whole life and I have come to the conclusion that there are only two categories of people involved in the sport; either a pessimist or an optimist. The pessimists focus on all the negatives, like injuries, suspensions, loss of form and think about what kind of impact a defeat would have on the team and the season. The optimist sees the strengths in themselves, players and teams, looks to the positives and puts all their energy into winning. I am 100% an optimist because that is the only way to bring the best out of yourself and those around you. My teams train and play to win and that will never change.
“For tomorrow’s game, the optimists will be looking at how a victory would draw us nearer to the teams above us and eventually moving up the league table.
“My own optimism is always based on facts. We are unbeaten in the last five league games and haven’t conceded in the last three. We have proved to be hard to beat in the last five games, which is always the foundation for stringing positive results together. Our ambition is to build on that and start putting wins together. Our training has been geared towards that and we have the personnel on the pitch that can make it happen.
“Our aim tomorrow is to build on our run of positive results and win the three points. That is our focus and everything we have been doing has been geared towards achieving that.”
