Clyde match preview

Ayr United vs. Clyde

Scottish Cup Third Round

Saturday 3rd April 2021. Kick-off 3pm

On Saturday, the Honest Men are in Scottish Cup action with well-travelled Clyde the visitors to Somerset Park for a third round tie. United have lost just one of their last seven matches and have scored 10 goals in the last five games, including in a 4-0 win over Elgin City 10 days ago which saw us reach this stage of the competition.

Opposition

Clyde travel to Somerset Park for their fourth away game in just eight days. By kick-off, the Bully Wee will have chalked up nearly 700 miles this week after trips to Montrose, Peterhead and East Fife as they play catch-up in League 1 following a number of postponements earlier in the season.

 

Danny Lennon’s side picked up four points from a possible nine: on loan St. Mirren striker Lewis Jamieson scored twice in a 2-2 draw at Links Park on Saturday which Clyde followed up with a 2-0 win at Peterhead on Tuesday. Thursday night saw the Cumbernauld side travel to East Fife, where they fell to an early Danny Denholm goal. The Bully Wee returned to action last month after the 12 week suspension of lower league football and won through to today’s Scottish Cup third round win with a 2-0 win at Highland League side Keith. They currently sit eighth in League 1.

 

Former Scotland international David Goodwillie, in his fifth season at Broadwood, is Clyde’s top-goalscorer this season with 9 goals in 15 games. Other notable players include midfielder Michael McGlinchey, who has 54 caps for New Zealand, and former Ayr United youth David Mitchell.

Team News

New singing Josh Todd is added to the squad. Dre Wright comes into contention after impressing in training this week and Corrie Ndaba also has a chance of featuring.

The Manager Says:

Although we were again pleased with the character of the players coming from behind on Saturday overall we wanted to be stronger defensively and win the game. Tomorrow is going to be another really tough game, Clyde are a good side and have done very well under Danny Lennon. We want to be strong at Somerset and make sure we win our home games. Progressing in the Scottish Cup is vital for us and we will be really up for the game. 

Head to Head

Ayr United wins: 51

Draws: 33

Clyde wins: 53

 

Ayr and Clyde have been drawn together six times in the Scottish Cup, with Clyde progressing 1953, 1960, 1961 and 1997. United were 1-0 winners at Shawfield in 1972 and needed a replay in 2017. Paul Cairney cancelled out David Gormley’s goal at Somerset Park, with an extra-time Mick Wardrope goal giving the Honest Men the win after Gormley again scored a late equaliser.

 

Last Meeting:

A David Goodwillie goal put Clyde ahead in the last meeting between the sides, a League Cup group match at Somerset Park in July 2017. Goals from Robbie Crawford and Craig Moore ensured the Honest Men went into the break ahead, with Moore again, Micheal Moffat and Declan McDaid handing us a comfortable 5-1 victory.
