PREVIEW: Stenhousemuir v Clyde

Clyde will make the short journey to Ochilview tomorrow for the latest fixture in the 2017-18 Ladbrokes League 2 campaign.

The match follows a break due to the inclement weather; ten days for Clyde and two weeks for Stenhousemuir. The Warriors currently sit in fourth place in the table and are one of the clubs that The Bully Wee are aiming to close the gap to.

One man that will be missing from Clyde’s squad is defender Callum Home, who is set to be out for a lengthy period after suffering a fractured shoulder.

Speaking to the official website today, Danny Lennon said:-

“Callum has been very consistent, willing to learn and someone who you can hang your hat on in terms of knowing what you will get every week. We’ll know more about the extent of the injury over the weekend, but we wish him a speedy recovery.

“We always said that there would be opportunities for the players that weren’t in the starting line-up and this is just one example of that. Players will get their chance over this busy period.”

The Clyde manager continued by looking back on a difficult fortnight, on and off the park:-

“It’s been a tough couple of weeks, but we managed to keep getting everyone together, including an indoor session on Sunday. The break has at least helped to allow one or two niggles to clear up.

“What was disappointing in the last two matches at Stirling and Peterhead wasn’t the overall level of performance, but the goals that we conceded and also not being able to take more of the chances we created at the other end. We built a platform based on being solid and not conceding many goals so we need to get that back again.

“We’ve still got everything to gain at this stage of the season, but we know that draws won’t be enough if we are to have any chance of getting close to the top four. We need more wins and we’re aiming to start that tomorrow – it’s what the supporters and everyone connected with our club deserve.”

Clyde supporters will be accommodated in the West terracing, which is a covered and standing only enclosure. Admission prices are; adults £12, concessions £8 and under-16s £6. Please note that Stenhousemuir have advised that there will only be limited spaces available for Clyde fans in the seated Main Stand.
