Match Report


If Morton have got the shakes this morning, its hardly surprising. For humble Clydebank gave them the fright of their lives with a terrific fighting display.

Their No 1 hero was Sandy MacLachlan. For 70 hectic minutes the gallant keeper dealt superbly with everything Morton's forwards threw at him.

Indeed, he had the distinction of leaving the field without conceding a goal. With 20 minutes left, he clashed with Moy, and was assisted to the dressing room suffering from mild concussion.

Within five minutes of Small taking over in goal and Wark substituting at right back, tragedy agains struck the fighting Bankies.

From the edge of the box Joe Harper dealt the death blow with a scorching drive high into the far corner of the net.

At the start of the match it looked as if the match would run true to form when Joe Mason came close three times in as many minutes. But very soon Clydebank's wingers began to pick holes in Morton's defence, and that was how it was until the 70th minute.

It was perhaps a trifle unlucky for the Clydebank team that they should lose their keeper at the end of the game. If MacLachlan had not been taken off the Bankies would surely have held the visitors to a draw, or maybe even scored one goal to their credit.
