Clyde face League 2 leaders Forfar Athletic on Saturday hoping to take another step towards securing their league status.
Back to back wins have boosted the Bully Wee’s hopes of avoiding any relegation play-off, but with just four points separating the bottom four the stage is set for a tense finale over the closing three games of the season.
Co-manager Peter MacDonald was over the moon with his team’s performance in their 3-2 comeback victory over Elgin City - and singled out striker David Goodwillie for his contribution after he bagged a second half hat-trick in just his second start for the club.
Goodwillie has been a controversial signing to say the least since joining Clyde, however what was clear on Saturday is that on the pitch, he has made a massive difference to the team.
“His performance today was top class, said MacDonald.
“He took a lot of stick from the Elgin fans but to go and produce a performance like that was excellent.
“But as a team I thought we were excellent. I didn’t have a bad player on the pitch.
“We all worked for each other and we showed a lot of character. It was a great performance.”
The Bully Wee conceded two first half goals, but it was clear to MacDonald that they were by far the better team over the piece.
He said: “First half I couldn’t believe we came in two nil down.
“Myself and Jon Paul [McGovern] emphasised that the first goal in the second half was critical. We managed to get that early goal and over the 90 minutes we deserved it - no doubt about that.”
