Lady Luck on Clyde side so far says Lennon
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.”
