Match Report


This match marked one of Clydebank's poorest performances this season, especially considering their recent draw against Motherwell in a friendly match. Tony Moy emerged as the only forward who posed a genuine threat, coming close to scoring on several occasions, only to be denied by keeper Russell.

The home team's performance lacked intensity, allowing Thirds to capitalise on their shortcomings. In a scrappy first half, neither team impressed until the 20th minute when Thirds' centre forward Stewart capitalised on a defensive error to slot the ball into the roof of the net on his second attempt.

Thirds dominated the second half, creating numerous scoring opportunities. However, stout, albeit occasionally shaky, defending by Clydebank prevented the scoreline from escalating further. Despite their efforts, Clydebank struggled to breach Thirds' formidable defence, with their attacks often fizzling out.

In the 62nd minute, Stewart struck again, heading home a cross from Connell to double Thirds' lead. From that point on, the outcome seemed inevitable. Although Frank Russell and Moy showed occasional flashes of brilliance, they were the only ones who looked capable of finding the back of the net in the second half.

Winger Stewart, filling in for Joe Rankin, posed a threat for Clydebank's defence but lacked support from the rest of the forwards, whose finishing let them down on multiple occasions.
