Match Report


A brilliantly taken goal by Andy Roxburgh paved the way for this Falkirk victory and made their quarter final place a racing certainty.

The Bairns were finding Clydebank a hot handful when the inside man struck. A Hoggan corner was edged towards Roxburgh, who controlled the awkward ball, wheeled, and sent a great shot into the far corner.

Falkirk were worthy of their win, but Clydebank fought hard and might well have upset the applecart if the breaks had gone their way. For example, at vital moments Millar and Gibson had to clear off the line with Rennie beaten.

But Falkirk had that decisive touch in front of goal.

Following an all-out attack, a Hoggan corner was flicked on by Roxburgh for Ferguson to stab home from close range.

Then, in injury time, Millar sent a free kick round the Clydebank defensive wall and straight into the net. For Falkirk, Ford, Abel, and Hoggan looked First Division performers. Dougie Hay was Clydebank's man, but new signing Peter Kane came on too late to make a real impression.
