Clyde boss Barry Fer­gu­son said he was left frus­trated after his side’s 2-1 de­feat to An­nan at Gal­a­bank at the week­end.

Clyde looked to have turned a cor­ner the week be­fore, when they ended a dis­mal run by beat­ing East Fife 3-1 at Broad­wood.

How­ever for­mer Rangers cap­tain Barry was left ru­ing in­di­vid­ual er­rors which cost his side dearly.

David Sinclair got the goal for the away side.

The for­mer Scot­land cap­tain said: “The first 20 min­utes they were the bet­ter team but after that we dom­i­nated the game.

“It was two in­di­vid­ual er­rors and that’s been the story of our sea­son.

“It was a set piece er­ror for the first goal where we didn’t cover the run­ner, apart from that it’s good we cre­ated chances and dom­i­nated play but we need to cut out the in­di­vid­ual er­rors.

“Hope­fully that will stop and I’ll have brought in a few new play­ers.”

The Bully Wee’s first game of 2015 will be against ri­vals Queen’s Park at Ham­p­den this Satur­day, 3pm. The Spi­ders are cur­rently third in the league and their last meet­ing ended in a 2-0 win for Queen’s.

The Clyde boss con­tin­ues to ham­mer home his mes­sage in train­ing, but ad­mits his play­ers just don’t seem to be tak­ing it on board.

He added: “You can do things in train­ing with them but they need to take it on board and they’ve not taken it on board and that’s why I look for­ward to Jan­uary 1.

“The deals are now to­tally done for four play­ers join us on Jan­uary 1, with a deal for a fifth player all but done.

“We can’t men­tion names just now, but they are guys that have been about and have a bit of know-how.”

As Barry pre­pares to bring in sev­eral new ad­di­tions in Jan­uary, he has cut loose sev­era; play­ers from his cur­rent squad.

Ai­dan McIl­duff has com­pleted the agreed three-month loan spell and re­turns to Celtic, mean­while Euan Mur­ray and Gor­don Young have both been re­leased from their con­tracts.
