PREVIEW: Clyde v Cove Rangers
Clyde welcome Cove Rangers to Broadwood in cinch League 1.
The Bully Wee will be looking to bounce back from what was a disappointing result last week in a 3-0 loss to Falkirk, while Cove will be looking to build on their good start to the season which currently sits them in 4th place after two wins, one draw and a defeat.
The sides met twice last season on league duty with Clyde winning the away game 3-2 in dramatic style, while the game at Broadwood finished in a 1-1 draw.
New signing Neil Parry could make his debut for this clash, as David Mitchell will be unavailable.
Clyde will still have some players on the sidelines due to injury for this match, with Page, Tade and Love definitely out. Barry Cuddihy will be a doubt as will Aaron Splaine who missed last week’s match.
Danny Lennon addressed the currently injury situation going into this game:-
“We’ve been hit a little bit hard recently, with Johnathan Page and Ally Love definitely out. It’s been frustrating. Aaron Splaine will be fighting against time to make it but he is making good recovery, and that’s the same with Barry Cuddihy.
There’s just four players who would probably come in and start most weeks, but I’m a big believer that we need to concentrate on what we do have available, and it’s an opportunity for another player to come in and impress.”
The Clyde manager also commentated ahead of the cinch League 1 match:-
“We are looking to come out and bounce back from last weekend. There was a good shape about us for the first hour of the game but we gave away soft goals from our point of view, especially the first one and the penalty.
“All credit to Falkirk as they looked good, but we have to bring more than being difficult to break down. We have to bring composure on the ball, and our ability to get the ball down and start passing it about. We have to play at a high tempo as that’s where I feel we are at our best and we’ll need that do deal with an energetic Cove side.
We know the brand of football they like to play, and I feel if both sides bring their full potential it has the makings of a fantastic game. We’re certainly looking to bring our strengths with the ball that we failed to do last week.”
