Match Report


Injuries to Ward White and Liam Houston forced Clydebank to make changes from last week's team. Hall and Gilmour replaced the injured players and McGovern was drafted on to the right wing with Larnach dropping down to the subs bench.

Bankies started brightly enough and a McGovern-McCallan move ended with Kane shooting wide. A rasping 25-yeard drive by Fallon was brilliantly touched over the bar by Cameron, who then had to look sharp to save a strong pass-back from left back Donnelly.

The only crumb of comfort, for the home fans at any rate, came in the 16th minute. Currie headed a corner from Campbell goal-ward, and, although Abel managed to block the ball on the line, in stepped MacKay to smash the ball home.

On the half-hour Provan and Hall switched positions in the Bankies defence. This was a good move, as both had looked uncomfortable up until then.

Despite having most of the play in the second half, Bankies just couldn't get going. They never had the players in the penalty area when it mattered and suspect handling by the Queen's keeper was allowed to go unpunished.

Joe McCallan, who toiled relentlessly with absolutely no support, won the ball well in midfield and sent Larnach away down the left wing. His cross was touched on by Kane, with McCallan striding into the penalty area.

It seemed a certain goal, but with the goalmouth at his mercy, Joe appeared to mis-hit his shot and the keeper dived to save on the line.

Thus Bankies dropped another two points and have failed to win in their last six matches. It would be nice to say that, having travelled over to Hampden on such a miserable day, one at least saw one's team go down fighting.

The only players to gain pass marks on this performance were the tireless McCallan, reliable Jim Gallacher in goal and the overworked Billy Fanning, whose guts and determination some of his more experienced colleagues would do well to follow.
