Match Report


Raith Rovers took the lead in three minutes when, after good work by Selway and Duncan, Robertson headed home.

Slowly, but surely, Clydebank came more into the picture, and, after defender Mitchell galloped along the wing and crossed, teenager, Thomson, pounced and equalised with a dandy drive.

Second-half was one long struggle, with Clydebank having most of the pressure.

During the last quarter, Rovers substituted Brown and Rice for Selway and Robertson
