PREVIEW: Clyde v Airdrieonians

Clyde are back in cinch League 1 action at Broadwood as Airdrie make the short trip through to Cumbernauld.

The Diamonds took all three points in the first encounter this season, as they won 2-1 at the Penny Cars Stadium with goals either side of David Goodwillie’s penalty. The visitors sit in 4th place in the table 6 points above Clyde in 7th.

The Bully Wee are looking to build on being unbeaten in the previous five league matches, but continue to have a number of injury problems going into this match .

Danny Lennon spoke to the official website ahead of the game:-

”Airdrie always provide very difficult games. I don’t think there are any easy games coming up, but the players have a wee bit of a boost and added confidence with the league being so tight and jumping up a couple of places last week. We want to continue the progress, but right now there’s the same amount of points that separate from either challenging up the top end or down the bottom.

”We know what direction we want to go and we need to continue backing that up with results. We’re having to put a lot of square pegs in round holes at this minute in time due to injury, but everybody is giving everything for the cause and we’re starting to get a bit of consistency which has been our downfall since the beginning of the season.

”We’re unbeaten in five league games now, and we know we’re more than capable of that but only when we bring our best which we are at this moment in time. We’re hungry, we’re greedy and we want more.”

Goalkeeper Neil Parry also gave his thoughts ahead of the game:-

”I think all the boys can be confident going into this, we’re five unbeaten in the league and become harder to beat, which I think a month or two ago we were conceding a lot of goals and chances. We have improved so there’s no reason why we can’t keep that run going, especially at home.

”I think the last game against Airdrie came when we were on a poor run, and we’ve improved a lot since then. Airdrie will be favourites, but we’re at our own stadium and there’s no reason we can’t keep our run going.”
