Ferguson wants more of the same as Clyde chase fifth straight win

Clyde's only absentee for the home game against Arbroath is Brian McQueen who has a long-term knee problem.

And manager Barry Ferguson has called for more of the same as his side chase a fifth successive win.

"Hard work from the players has taken us on this good run and all I can ask the players to do is to keep up that approach," Ferguson said.

"There are a lot of games to be played against difficult teams, starting against Arbroath, but if the players keep working as hard as they have been I will have no complaints."

Arbroath, who gave themselves a boost with a 3-1 midweek win over Berwick Rangers, will be without Sergio Alvarez (hamstring) and Craig Johnstone (knee).

Manager Todd Lumsden is looking for the squad's spirit to shine through again.

He said: "A lot of things had gone against us against Berwick and we were going bottom with just over 15 minutes left.

"The boys kept on believing in each other and turned it around and we will need that mental strength again against a Clyde side that are in terrific form.

"They have a strong experienced squad, but we are not going there to make up the numbers."
