PREVIEW: FC Edinburgh v Clyde

The Bully Wee return to cinch League 1 action tomorrow and will aim to build on their three points picked up last weekend as they travel to Meadowbank to face FC Edinburgh.

The capital side have won both encounters between the clubs so far this season by two goals to nil.

Jim Duffy will monitor the fitness of a couple of players ahead of kick-off, but one who definitely won’t be taking part is Paul Kennedy. The midfielder is facing six weeks on the sidelines after damaging ankle ligaments in training.

The Bully Wee gaffer spoke to the official website ahead of the game:-

“We want to keep the momentum going; the fact that we won last week should give the players more confidence but every game in this division is very tough and Edinburgh have been around the playoff positions pretty much all season. From our point of view we want to apply ourselves the same but obviously tighten up on a few things from last Saturday. If we can improve and take care of the ball a little bit better and show the same levels of commitment and energy then we’ll be in with a chance.”

Duffy also had praise for the Clyde supporters after sticking with the team despite a tough season on the park:-

“It’s always difficult for supporters if you’ve not been winning games to stay with the team but they have done that and there has been a real sense of togetherness recently, especially last week. The fans were excellent and got right behind the players and that helped them; there were spells in the game when we were finding it tough and Peterhead had a few opportunities to score but the fans stuck by us with their support and that was vital in the end. If they can continue to do that it’ll certainly help the players and hopefully we can reward them with a positive performance and a good result.”
