Finding just lately that on first press down of the clutch pedal that it feels a bit stiffer than normal, (when it's been left all day at work) but after a couple of presses it's ok , thinking about it's not that noticeable when starting it first thing in the morning anyone else find this ? could it be a cabin related temperature problem due to expansion of the pedal assembly area?

The cable, the pedal pivot and the lever on the gearbox are most likely to be the problem.(lack of lube or rust)
Lube them with a light penetrating oil or spray grease.

Temp expansion ....... No

There is no cable and no lever on the gearbox. The clutch is hydraulic and the slave cylinder is part of the release bearing.

Ah, in that case I'll just try lubing the pedal pivot and see what happens.
