Match Report


Celtic manager Jock Stein was an interested spectator at this Scottish League Cup supplementary round first leg tie at Somerset Park, but it is doubtful if he saw anything to give him sleepless nights before the winners meet the European champions.

What he did see was an all action tie including a dramatic Ayr equaliser 30 seconds from time.

It came from the right foot of United's Alex Ingram, who collected a rebound from keeper Madden to net. For Ayr the goal was a tremendous relief after almost non-stop pressure. Time and again they were denied by a Clydebank defence which survived frantic goalmouth scrambles.

At the same time Clydebank were by no means failures in attack. They could well have profited had Moore accepted two golden chances against his former clubmates.

As it was, Walker, McMillan and Ingram were all denied goals by the brilliance of Madden before the interval.

Clydebank snatched the lead from the penalty spot two minutes after the restart. Quinn, with his centre half Monan lying injured behind him, handled a cross from the right. Moy scored from the spot.
