Match Report


A great first-half display from Clydebank was enough to dispose of a disappointing Falkirk at Kilbowie on Wednesday evening, keeping up the local side's promotion challenge.

Bankies were on top throughout the first 45 minutes, and deservedly took the lead in the 22nd minute through a Billy McColl penalty, after Larnach had been brought down.

Clydebank kept up the pressure, and it was no surprise when further goals from Dougie Hay and Mike Larnach gave them a three goal lead at half-time.

In the second half, Falkirk came more into the game as Bankies eased up, and the visitors pulled a goal back with a Shirra header in the 60th minute.

Although Clydebank were still not in top gear, a McCallan goal in the 78th minute gave them an emphatic victory against a poor Falkirk side, who had Holt, Shirra and Clougherty all booked.
