Match Report


Despite the heavy conditions, Clydebank put up a spirited display. They gained midfield advantage, but could not beat Heap's fine defensive system.

Once again, it was McCutcheon who came to Stranraer's rescue with the only goal of the match, and it was a well-engineered counter. McCall sprinted down the wing and crossed for Campbell to head down to the local lad, who hammered the ball into the roof of the net.

The goal extended Stranraer's unbeaten run to 10 matches, and manager Eric Caldow has still to taste defeat.
