Clyde reaction

Stirling Albion manager Dave Mackay felt his side were below par in Saturday’s Scottish Cup fourth-round tie against Clyde at Forthbank which finished 2-2.

Dylan Nguene Bikey grabbed a late equaliser after Peter MacDonald’s double had overturned the Frenchman’s early goal and the sides will try again at Broadwood on Tuesday January 31.

Mackay said: “The only positive is that we are still in the cup. It might look from the outside that it was a good game with four goals but I felt it was scrappy.

“Clyde came with a game plan and they also looked a bit sharper and won more of the second balls but we stuck at it and got the goal near the end which showed character.

“Clyde are street-wise and experienced and played to their strengths but we can certainly up our game so I’d say it’s 50/50 for the replay.”

Bikey has now scored nine goals in nine appearances but Saturday was likely to have been his final appearance for the club.

Mackay added: “I’d be amazed if that wasn’t Dylan’s last game – we would love to keep him but it looks like he will be moving on.”

Clyde boss Barry Ferguson said: “I thought the guys were great and we should have won the game, especially on the second-half performance. The attitude was much more like us but you have to give Stirling credit for coming back at the end.”
