Clyde Reaction: Paul Hartley

MANAGER Paul Hartley spoke to the media after our 1-1 draw with Clyde at Broadwood Stadium.

He said: “I had to make six changes and we had key players missing, so we have to be pleased to come away with a point.

“You could also say it was a bit of a missed opportunity when you look at the other results on the night and how we played.

“We controlled the majority of the game and scored a really good goal.

“Unfortunately, we then conceded a sloppy one, which was a shame because we were really on top for most of the match.

“We maybe lacked that cutting edge, the final pass that would give us the advantage, but I’m not going to be critical of the players.

“I knew it was going to be tough, as every game will be between now and the end of the season.

“This was particularly challenging, there were a lot of tired bodies out there because of the really hard game (away to Rangers) we had on Sunday.

“It’s another point for us, away from home, which could end up proving invaluable.

“It’s a case of resting the players now so that they are able to go again on Saturday.”

The manager is hopeful skipper Mitch Megginson and Leighton McIntosh, who missed the Clyde game through injury, will be fit for Saturday’s League One meeting with Dumbarton at Balmoral Stadium.

The manager also confirmed midfielder Jamie Masson will be out for the rest of the season.

Jamie is due to have surgery on the ankle injury he suffered during our Scottish Cup tie against Rangers at Ibrox.

Everyone at the club wishes Jamie a speedy recovery.
