Pressure grows on Bully Wee
Striker Sean Higgins insists a relegation fight is not what he envisaged when he signed for Clyde – but he wants everyone to stick together as they gear up to face Montrose.
The Bully Wee go in to the last day of the League Two season still needing a point to preserve their place in the SPFL.
David Gormley’s penalty put Clyde in front at Broadwood on Saturday but Jonny Fairbairn ensured a share of the spoils for Berwick after the break.
Both clubs are three points ahead of rock-bottom Cowdenbeath going in to this weekend’s final fixtures.
The Blue Brazil travel to Elgin City while Berwick host Edinburgh City.
Meanwhile, Clyde are on the road at Montrose who have work to do in order to clinch a top-four finish.
Higgins, 32, had hoped the Bully Wee would be fighting it out at the top of the table. Instead, his side head to Links Park looking to avoid bottom spot – and a nerve-shredding play-off final against East Kilbride or Buckie Thistle with their SPFL place on the line.
“It was in our hands and we didn’t deliver again,”he said.“It’s frustrating, given that we had gone 1-0 up.
“Everybody has to be in it together this week and hopefully we’re able to go to Montrose and win the game to stay in the league.
“I didn’t come here for this to happen. Injuries and a few bad results means confidence has drained, although I don’t think it has been down to a lack of effort.
“We just need to be positive and produce a performance which is better than the ones we have produced in the last two games.”
Disappointed Clyde co-boss Peter MacDonald said:“We got into a great position and gave away a cheap goal.
“We’ve lost on a chance of guaranteed survival but we need to pick ourselves up.
“It’s up to us. I’m pretty sure Cowdenbeath would rather be in our shoes.”
