Clyde gaffer Jim Duffy organised a bounce game at the weekend to give some of fringe players a run out.
The former Chelsea coach arranged the closed door game against Livingston at Broadwood on Friday as Scottish Cup fixtures put paid to any league action.
He was pleased with the exercise as a number of players who hadn’t featured in recent weeks were given a run out.
He added: “It was good to bring in some of the boys who maybe hadn’t played in a while. We also brought in four under-21 players.
“There’s no substitute for match practice.
“We wanted to keep the players sharp. We trained as normal at the weekend as well and we’ll look forward to the Montrose game.”
Next up Clyde will play Montrose at Broadwood on Saturday.
They are currently two points above the Bully Wee but have played a game more.
Jim said: “You could say this before every league game, but it is such a tight league, you only have to look at the table to see how tight it is. With two wins you could be second and with two losses you could be bottom!
“Montrose will be saying the same thing. They had a terrific come back last week They were 2-0 down against Elgin with 10 men but they came back to draw 2-2. That shows you no team gives up in this league.”
The bus times for Clyde’s game on Saturday are as follows:
Murray Square, 1.15pm; Croftfoot Roundabout 1.25pm; Muslin Street 1.35pm; Clyde Club; 1.45pm.
