The View from the Other Side - Clyde manager Danny Lennon

Clyde head north after a 3-1 win over title chasing Airdrie with the Bully Wee sweating on the fitness of Chris McStay who was injured in the warm-up to the game with the Diamonds.

If McStay does not make it manager Danny Lennon will have no qualms in using Tony Wallace in a midfield role again as he explained: “Chris has made progress, but he is still a doubt. If Chris cannot play, then I have Tony standing by. He did an excellent job last weekend and handled being thrown in at short notice very well.”

“The performance and result against Airdrie was very good and it was secured by everyone in the team putting in a great shift. We will look for the same approach at Peterhead.”

So far this season Lennon’s side have won at Balmoor and Jim McInally’s men triumphed at Broadwood with the Clyde manager saying: “The first half performance Peterhead put in at our place was the best 45 minutes I have ever seen from them in and out of possession. Rory McAllister was excellent during that time and scored two goals. Like our David Goodwillie he is a special player who can do special things.”

“The second half of that game was better for us and we could have snatched a draw after pulling a goal back. “

“We will look to start this one as we finished that last meeting.”

As well as the doubt over McStay Lennon has ruled out Craig Howie, John Rankin, Declan Fitzpatrick and Kristofer Syvertsen.
