PREVIEW: Clyde v Alloa Athletic

Clyde play the final of the three home matches in a week as Alloa Athletic visit Broadwood in cinch League 1.

Both of the previous meetings between the sides have ended in The Bully Wee taking all three points, after a 2-1 win at Broadwood and an Ally Love strike securing a 1-0 victory at the Indodrill Stadium.

Four points separate the teams in the table, with Alloa in 8th on 22 points while Clyde sit in 6th on 26 points.

Nick McAllister goes straight into the squad for this game after signing on loan from Ayr, while Barry Cuddihy, Ross Cunningham and Paul Kennedy continue to recover from their injuries.

Danny Lennon spoke about the new signing in Nick McAllister:-

“At 21, Nick has good experience at this level and above, having played in the Championship with Ayr United and on loan in this league for the second half of last season with Dumbarton. He has solid defensive qualities, whether that be at right back or in a defensive midfield role. We are pleased to have him here at Clyde, as we seek to push on in the remaining games of the league campaign.’’

Danny then gave an update on the injury situation of the squad:-

“Paul is waiting on a scan which is scheduled to happen next week, and Ross is making good progress. He’s just doing running just now as it’s a case of letting the injury settle down and keep away from the contact stuff for now as we have to give the bone time to heal, so we’re looking at the middle of February for him coming back.”

The Clyde manager went on to look ahead to the Alloa clash:-

“What you get at that at this level playing three times a week, players have to come in and play more minutes than you expect and there’s fatigue that sets in. We managed to get ourselves back into the game on Tuesday after going behind twice, and it’s always great to see that character. The players have to take belief from that.

Sometimes you get nothing out of a game when you think you deserved so much more and vice versa. People might think we stole a point on Tuesday, but you have to work hard for everything you get in a game of football and if we stole a point then we almost robbed them for another 2 at the end which we would have taken gladly.”

“We’re a bit thin for training on Thursday. We’re recovering and wrapping players in cotton wool, but we take great belief from the last couple of games so we will dust ourselves and get ready to go again against Alloa. They are very organised and the previous games have been close, so we expect nothing less than another tough test again this time around.”
