PREVIEW: East Fife v Clyde

Clyde travel to face East Fife at New Bayview in cinch League 1 this weekend.

The Bully Wee have won both encounters between the sides this season, running out 3-1 winners at Broadwood and 2-0 in the first fixture in Methil. East Fife currently sit bottom of the league with 14 points, while Clyde moved upto 5th after last week’s win against Alloa on 29 points.

Matthew Elsdon and Lewis Jamieson will be fit to play after both having knocks during the game last week, while Morgaro Gomis is once again available for selection. Barry Cuddihy, Ross Cunningham and Paul Kennedy continue to be ruled out, but are edging closer back to full fitness.

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

“There has been a lot of distractions over the past week taken to another level, there’s no doubt. The boys have trained extremely well over the last week and we’ve had to look after them, in terms of the demands in the three games in close succession so there was a bit of recovery needed. There’s been a good atmosphere in training and we’re very much looking forward to continuing our good run of form.

“We know East Fife are going to present a very difficult challenge, but we’re still looking to improve in every game and every training session. If we keep working as hard as we have been, putting in the same effort then we’ll give ourselves the best chance.”

The Clyde manager also spoke about the opportunity to still bring in loan players until the end of February:

“Work continuingly goes on behind the scenes at this moment in time, and we can still use the loan system until the end of the month. If the right player comes along, we’re certainly look at it and identify if they can come in and improve us.

I think we’ve done some good business bringing Lewis Jamieson back, he just needs a few games as he’s been sitting on a bench for most of the season, and I feel Nick McAllister is going to be a real asset for us.”
