East Fife boss frustrated after coronavirus call-off
Clyde informed Scottish Professional Football League officials that, due to four players testing positive for covid-19 and several others self-isolating, they were unable to fulfil Saturday’s fixture.
Confirmation of the postponement didn’t arrive until late on Friday evening.
To rub salt in the wounds, results elsewhere on Saturday meant the Fifers slipped to the bottom of League One.
That left a sour taste in Young’s mouth, with the Bayview gaffer believing the Bully Wee have as many as a dozen players affected.
He said: “There are a whole lot of things which point to them getting off scot free.
“You could say it’s not really their fault, but not when they have 12 players missing.
“In a way, we’re getting punished because we go bottom of the table and have to fit a midweek game in somewhere.
“I’m not happy that we’ve been punished in different ways and their punishment is nothing.
“They don’t have to play the game because they have too many players out.
“Well, why do they have too many players out?
“Obviously, something somewhere isn’t right.
“We’re now bottom of the league and having to play catch-up with three games in a week.
“They get an advantage from it because they get their better players back and have a full squad to pick from later on in the year.”
With the game off, Young still gathered his side at Bayview for a training session
No date has yet been announced for the rescheduled Clyde game.
