Lady Luck on Clyde side so far says Len­non

The Scotsman - - WEEKEND SPORT -

Clyde hold a one- goal lead over Ed­in­burgh City ahead of their sec­ond leg at Broad­wood and Bully Wee man­ager Danny Len­non ad­mits his side are for­tu­nate to be in front.

Len­non said: “We had an el­e­ment of Lady Luck be­ing on our side, as they hit the wood­work t hree t i mes i n mid­week. We only hold a 1- 0 lead against a good side so noth­ing has been achieved. Things are very much in the bal­ance and it is only half­time.”

Ed­in­burgh City man­ager James Mc­donaugh is look­ing for his men to start where they fin­ished. He said: “We fin­ished the first leg on the front foot. We were cre­at­ing chances and had Clyde pushed back so it would be ter­rific to start off that way at Broad­wood.

“We should have scored at least one goal the other night. It never hap­pened but we are still con­fi­dent we can get back into the tie.”

S t e n h o u s e mui r ma n - ager Colin Mcmenamin is de­mand­ing his play­ers put vis­i­tors An­nan un­der the same pres­sure they were put un­der dur­ing Tues­day night’s first leg which the Gal­a­bank men won 2- 0. “An­nan came out and would not let us set­tle,” he said. “They dom­i­nated the game as a re­sult and what we served up was poor. I am look­ing for a re­ac­tion as our dis­play was not good enough. The first half in par­tic­u­lar was un­ac­cept­able.

“If it takes us 120 min­utes to win, I am fine with that.”

A n n a n ma n a g e r Pe t e r Mur­phy ex­pects their hosts to come out at a whirl­wind speed. “This game will be very dif­fer­ent to the first leg as Sten­house­muir know that they have to score,” he said. “They will come out all guns blaz­ing and we have to be ready for an on­slaught.”
