FERGIE WANTS HIS BULLY WEE TO SHOW RUTHLESS STREAK
Clyde boss Barry Ferguson insisted his side weren’t ruthless senough after their 2-0 defeat to Montrose at Links Park at the weekend.
The match was fairly evenly contested, with Clyde having nine shots to Montrose’s four.
The Bully Wee could have taken the lead inside 20 seconds when Archie Campbell was given a sight of goal inside the box.
However, the forward’s shot went straight at home keeper Jordan Miller.
After missing a penalty moments earlier, Montrose took the lead on 78 minutes as Graham Webster found the roof of the net with a first time shot from the edge of the box.
Three minutes later, the match was effectively over when a mistake by Smith allowed Fraser to roll the ball past Gibson and make it 2-0.
Speaking to the club’s official; website, Barry said:“It was really disappointing. We just weren’t ruthless enough again - and by that I mean the whole team.
“We have to start taking our chances, but it’s not just the forwards, it’s everyone in the team. It doesn’t matter how a chance comes, set pieces are going to play a big part, so everyone has the responsibility.
“I’ve been in the game a long time and I know there are going to be matches where there aren’t a lot of chances, so we’ve got to take them when they come. I’ve made that clear to the players.”
This Saturday the Bully Wee will take on East Stirling at Broadwood.
CLYDE: Gibson, Mitchell, Bolochoweckyj, Marsh, Linton, Smith, McLaughlin, Ferguson, Gormley, Higgins, Campbell (McQueen 79).
