Match Report

This was the match that made you glad the season was coming to an end. With Premier League football pretty much secured, this West of Scotland Cup match was the only opportunity left to extend the year. However, the Bankies squad is down to the bare bones with the youth teams supplying most of the subs bench, so expectations were low.

There is no surprise then that the Bankies succumbed by two goals to nil. It was still a pretty poor performance overall though. One would have hoped for a bit more endeavour than was given, and the fact that the only shot on target all night from Clydebank came from the penalty spot tells its own story. Obviously, with the score of nil it doesn’t take a genius to work out that the keeper saved it. Josh Watt was the offender as his tame effort was easily saved by Johnson. That came in the seventh minute and this was the brightest the Bankies were all night.

Cumnock dominated without being overly threatening, but the goals did come. The first after 17 minutes came after Waters did a poor job of parrying a shot away to his right. The ball was picked up by an incoming striker who knocked the ball across goal for Wood to slam it home at the back post.

A second goal would kill the game off, and it took until the 72nd minute before it came. Anson having the easy task of heading home from around six yards as the Bankies were caught out at the back.

So, there are three more league games to go. Although much improved, we don’t half throw in some duff performances. This and the Arthurlie game recently are cases in point. Hopefully, we can have a wee go against other teams who have nothing left to play for in the league and try and finish as high as possible up the table.
