Match Report


Following the release of full back Malcom Henderson, the Bankies experimented with the defensive line up. Ernie Collumbine dropped into the right back position and this allowed Dennis Ruddy to return to the centre of defence. Despite the result, Clydebank looked a much more stable side.

Rovers dominated the early stages but failed to snatch their chances. It was the 43rd minute before Green put them ahead but their lead was short lived. Munro for the equaliser a minute later.

After the break Clydebank forced the pace and had Rovers defence fullt stretched. McFeat was hard pressed and had some saves to keep Munro, Hawkshaw and Caskie from netting.

In the 59th minute, McGovern was up ended jut outside the penalty box. Coleman took the free kick and Rogerson, coming in like an express train, thundered the ball past Madden against the run of play.

Before the Bankies could recover, just 60 seconds later, Green netted number three from a murphy pass.

Rovers lost McGovern to injury in the 75th minute and bachelor took over.
