PREVIEW: Clyde v Peterhead

Clyde return to cinch League 1 action this weekend as Peterhead visit Broadwood.

The last meeting between the sides ended in a 3-2 win for The Blue Toon, the game which David Goodwillie scored his 100th Clyde goal. Only 1 point separates the two teams in the league table going into this encounter.

Danny Lennon will be without two players for this match, on of which is Barry Cuddihy who was injured last week against Clydebank. The other is Marky Munro, who today joined Camelon Juniors on loan.

The Clyde manager gave an update on Barry’s injury:-

“The injury isn’t as bad as we first thought. We’ve had it check and x-rayed, there’s a bit of soft tissue damage but he’s making very, very good progress so we’ll see how quickly that takes but this Saturday’s game will come too quickly for him.”

Danny continued to look ahead to the Peterhead clash:-

“Last week was an absolute shock to the system. I can only apologise to the fans. We’ve spoken a lot this week and done a lot of reflecting but now that has to be put into action. We owe the fans, no doubt about it as they pay their hard earned money.

“The result was embarrassing, the players were embarrassed. I can understand in the cup that there can be a shock, but usually the underdog is holding on or scores against the run of play, but that wasn’t the case on Saturday and that was the biggest disappointment for me and the coaching staff. We are due the fans a big performance.

“I always think Peterhead get out the traps quickly. It’s important that we set the tone and the pace of the game. That’s something that we’ve worked hard on and that’s something that we’re going to demand.

“We are better when we’re on the front foot and take the game to the opposition, We are better when we bring our ability, go out and win those first and second balls. That was a big part of what was missing last week.”
