Ross Cunningham intends to repay Danny Lennon’s faith in him by firing Clyde to a play-off slot.

The 21-year-old striker has signed up at the Bully Wee from Premiership side Hamilton Accies on a loan deal until the end of the season, and he feels that they should be higher up the League 1 table than their current eighth position.

With a clash at leaders Raith Rovers looming at the weekend, Cunningham intends to become a hero for the Clyde faithful, even if it’s on a temporary basis.

Cunningham is still top scorer at Accies with seven goals this season, and hopes to emulate that at Broadwood this term.

Speaking at the launch of Lanarkshire Live Sport, Cunningham said: “I want to make an impact at Clyde.

“I wasn’t playing as much at Hamilton as I would have liked, Clyde phoned and said ‘we’re willing to take you and give you the games that you want’ so hopefully I can go there, repay the faith that the gaffer there has shown in me, and score some goals for him.

“It’s brilliant, training is good, there’s a good energy about the place and all the boys have been brand new with me, so it’s good and I’m enjoying it so far.

“I think we should be pushing as close to the play-off slot as possible, with the squad that we’ve got.

“There are still 13 games to go, so there’s still a big chance to pick up some big points, starting with the game this weekend.”
