PREVIEW: Clyde v Cove Rangers

Fri, 7th Jan 2022 5:47pm

Clyde play their first match of 2022 tomorrow in cinch League 1 as Cove Rangers visit Broadwood.

The match will go ahead following a 10am pitch inspection.

Clyde are unbeaten in the last six league games, and will be hoping to continue that good run of form in what will be a very tough test against the league leaders. Clyde won the previous game at Broadwood 2-1, while Cove won 3-0 at the Balmoral Stadium earlier this season.

Danny Lennon hopes to have a healthier-looking squad for this match than he had available in our last league match at Falkirk, with some players returning from injury and also Marky Munro and Owen Andrew being recalled from their loan spells. One player who will miss this match is Aaron Splaine who is suspended after accumulating too many yellow cards.

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

”Cove are a team that are doing exceptionally well, their consistency and their performances this season have been very, very good. We know a great deal about them, they’re a good squad and we’ll give them the credit they deserve but like anything it’s important we highlight and exploit their weaknesses to our advantage.

”We want to continue our good form and looking up the way, and that gives this the makings of a great game. They’ve always been entertaining games with Cove at Broadwood and it’s one we’re very much looking forward to. We should have one or two players back from injury that makes the squad look healthier.”

"The game off last week gave us a weeks opportunity to give a few players a bit more time to get back from injury or at least closer to contention. It gave them another couple of training sessions so there was at least positives that came from it, even though we wanted the game to go ahead.

”We have on a good bit of momentum now which was missing at the start of the season, and we want to continue that consistency into the second half of the season. There will be a lot of games coming fast and furious and we need to remain focused and bring what we have in the last 6 league games but at the same time look to improve and move forward."
