Annan weakened for visit of Clyde

Annan will be without the injured Steven Swinglehurst (knee) as well as Barry Cuddihy (ankle) for the visit of Clyde and the absentee list could grow with Rabin Omar and on-loan Queen of the South striker Aidan Smith struggling with injuries.

Galabank manager Jim Chapman said: "We have been inconsistent so far as we put on a great performance to defeat Stirling Albion in our first game and then played poorly when we lost to Berwick Rangers last weekend.

"We have a young squad and it is not important to get too high with success or too low when we do not succeed. Hopefully they can excel again against Clyde."

Clyde duo Jon-Paul McGovern and Scott Ferguson will miss out due to knee injuries and the Cumbernauld club also have an injury doubt over summer signing Michael Oliver.

The Bully Wee have adapted well to the new style of play that manager Barry Ferguson has introduced and he hopes to see it bring further reward as he explained: "The changes we have made have worked well so far and we need to build on them. It will be a difficult game at Annan, it always is, but hopefully all the preparation we have done will see us come out on top."
