Match Report

This was a pretty turgid affair with rank rotten football on a day where the weather was just as bad. The Bankies got the result which was the most important thing with goals from Mark Burbidge and new signing Jamie Lyden.

The Bankies played reasonably well for the first twenty minutes and got the goal they deserved from the best piece of football all day. Nicky Little split the Greenock defence with a superb pass that put Burbidge clean through on goal. The speedy winger finished off the move by rounding the keeper and sliding the ball into the empty net.

Greenock pretty much dominated possession for the remainder of the match, but could have played until the end of time and not scored.

The Bankies managed to add a second goal not long before half time with Jamie Lyden tapping in from close range following a set piece. Judging from this display, Lyden looks like a decent acquisition.

With the cold seeping in to your bones, the full time whistle was very welcome. The goals aside the Bankies did not play very well and had Greenock carried any kind of attacking threat the outcome could have been very different. In fairness, it was the first game after the Christmas/New Year break and cutting Largs lead at the top of the table was the most important thing, and from that point of view it was job done.
