Match Report

Clydebank recorded a much needed win against relegation threatened Rob Roy to secure a top half finish in the league. Goals from Alan Vezza and a penalty strike from Jordan Shelvey were enough to see off the Rabs who rarely threatened the home goal.

After a dire first half which saw next to nothing of note happen, the Bankies got their act together in the second half and deservedly took the lead with Alan Vezza scoring with a header at the back post from a Cammy McClair. It was a scrappy goal fitting of the game, but very welcome all the same.

The points were wrapped up with 20 minutes to go when Forrester downed Shelvey in the box. Shelvey took the spot kick himself and put it away to net his 17th of the season, which is the Bankies No 9’s best return in a season for the club.

Shortly afterwards, Mackie hit the bar for the visitors with one of their few attempts at goal. It is clear where Rob Roy’s deficiencies lie as they are generally quite resolute but lacked the guile to open up the Bankies defence.

Clydebank were not troubled again, and easily saw out the remaining time. If the Bankies can pull out some performances in their last three games then sixth place or with a bit of luck fifth in the league could be attained which would be a great overall achievement from last season. The worst case scenario is now eighth place which would be a good solid improvement on this time last year. No matter the end result, there is a platform for next season for further improvement.
