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).
