Work ethic gets praise from boss
Barry takes positive from league loss
Clyde boss Barry Ferguson praised his side’s work ethic following their 2-0 defeat to Queen’s Park at Broadwood on Saturday.
It was the Bully Wee’s third defeat in a row as a goal in each half gave the Spiders all three points.
However Barry was quick to praise his side’s commitment.
Speaking to the Clyde official website, he said: “It was a bad start.
“Although we didn’t play well after it, what has happened in previous games is that we’ve collapsed. We didn’t do that.
“In the second half we were the better team and had the chances. I can’t fault their effort or committment to me, they’re out there working their back sides off.
“We just didn’t get the wee breaks we needed.”
“It’s hurting them, I can see it in their eyes and it’s hurting me as well.
“I’m happy it’s hurting them. They gave me everything, I can’t complain.
“Our keeper had one save to make in the second half. Anyone who was there second half “
This Saturday Clyde will face Berwick Rangers at Shielfield Park. The last time the two teams met ended in a high scoring 3-3 draw at Broadwood.
Barry wants his team to keep giving it their all. He added: “If they walk in the dressing room and they’ve gave me 100 per cent, that’s all I can ask.
“We have to try to maintain the standard we showed in the second half.
Midfielder Andy Gibson has left Clyde after announcing his retirement from the game due to injury.
The 32-year-old informed Barry Ferguson of his decision to stop playing this week.
Barry said: “Andy didn’t think he could give the club all he can so fair play to him, he could have just seen out his contract.
“It’s disappointing as he’s an experienced player, but he’s an honest man and we wish him all the best.”
Gibson signed for the Bully Wee in August and featured in 12 matches for the club.
