Lennon sees a turn for better
Clyde manager Danny Lennon took heart from his side’s display despite their penalty shootout loss to Caley Thistle.
After a 0-0 draw at Caledonian Stadium, the Bully Wee saw spotkicks from Tony Wallace and Chris McStay saved by Mark Ridgers to exit the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup.
Lennon said: “It’s disappointing as it’s always nice to get to a semifinal, it’s a nice change from the run of the mill of the league games.
“We took a lot from that game, though. We came to play a club that is doing very well in the
Championship and we competed with them for long periods in the first half. We could see they had a wee bit of quality but I thought we handled their strengths well.
“The way we came out in the second half was fantastic. We tried to stop them at a high source and, on the back of that, we broke and got probably the best two or three opportunities of the second half.
“I thought Ridgers’s save from Chris McStay was absolutely outstanding. It was a key moment, and he will probably have taken a great deal of confidence going into the penalties.”
