Millar has confidence in players

CLYDE boss Stuart Millar couldn't hide his disappointment as a series of "unbelievable" decisions by referee Des Roache saw his side reduced to nine men and dismantled by Montrose.

But the Bully Wee manager is adamant that his side just need a break of luck to turn their form around.

He said: "I've never seen anything like that in my 30 years. I've no problem with the referee using the linesman if he's up the other end of the park but he was only 10-yards away and changed his decision. When I played you were told the referee's decision is final and there's no point in arguing with him.

"Don't get me wrong, although we were down to nine men we made mistakes in the second half that we shouldn't have. I think tiredness, both physical and mental, came into it - we played more than 60 minutes two men down."

Millar says that the players remain upbeat and he expects a positive reaction against Elgin City on Saturday.

He added: "We've just got to regroup. I have plenty of confidence in the players and they are confident in me. We're not making excuses, we should have more points than we have and should be higher up the table.

"We've got quite a few injuries so we're getting down to the bare bones at the moment so it's time for the boys to show a bit of character and pull together. I understand the fans' frustrations, believe me I share them. But I know it will improve, we just need to get the breaks and I'm sure the results will follow."
