MATCH PREVIEW: Forfar Athletic v Clyde

Thursday, 20 April 2017 19:41


It has without doubt reached that stage of the season for both sides due to ‘lock horns’ at Station Park on Saturday that little preview of the fixture is required.

The whole ninety minutes ahead of the ‘Loons’ and the ‘Bully Wee’ can be summed up in one sentence.

For differing reasons a win is almost a must for both sides.

The home side require the three points to get their title challenge back on track while victory for the Broadwood outfit would certainly go a long way to ensuring their SPFL survival.

Gary Bollan has a full pool of players to choose from, but has hinted that he may make a change or two following last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Links Park.

Clyde’s management team buoyed by their fight back against Elgin City on Saturday past which saw a David Goodwillie second half hat-trick secure a 3-2 victory will be minus the suspended Chris Smith.

The ‘Loons’ won a thrilling Boxing Day clash between the sides at Station Park 4-3, while the Broadwood jousts between the sides have ended in a single goal success for the Station Park side and a 2-2 draw.

Clyde are sure to bring a substantial travelling support north on Saturday, so hopefully the home fans will stick with their side and act as a ‘twelfth man’ as we strive to get over the finishing line in pole position.

Saturday’s big game is sponsored by Graham Environmental Services.

Admission prices are £13/7 for the stand, £12/6 for the terracing.

First season Grade One official Steven Reid is the man in the middle, his second visit of the season to Station Park, his first for the midweek clash with Annan Athletic.
