Henry back to boost Arbroath for Clyde clash but injured trio sit it out

Arbroath welcome back on-loan Aberdeen midfielder Jamie Henry from suspension for the home game against Clyde.

Henry missed the goalless midweek draw with East Stirling, while Jamie Reid is expected to shake off a knock.

But Gayfield boss Todd Lumsden is still without Greg Rutherford (hamstring), Craig Johnstone (knee) and David Gold (ankle).

Lumsden said: "The only thing missing from Tuesday night's game was a goal.

"We had not created much in our previous two games, however we were much more creative on Tuesday but just failed to get the ball over the line. We need to build on that against a strong Clyde side."

Clyde will chase a third straight win without Mark McLaughlin, who is suspended after being sent off in the 2-1 win at Stirling on Tuesday night.

Knee injuries continue to rule out Brian McQueen, Scott McMann and Scott Ferguson.

Manager Barry Ferguson said: "We showed a lot of character to come back and get our win in midweek.

"Our performances are getting better all the time but we are not looking at league positions, we are simply looking to win every game.

"We won at Arbroath earlier in the season and we will look to keep our good run going by doing so again."
