Match Report


Celtic manager Jock Stein witnessed a thrilling encounter at Somerset Park in the Scottish League Cup first leg tie, but it likely offered little cause for concern ahead of a potential meeting with the European champions.

The match was an action-packed affair, culminating in a dramatic equaliser for Ayr United with just 30 seconds remaining. Alex Ingram collected a rebound from Clydebank goalkeeper Madden and fired the ball into the net, sparking jubilation amongst the Ayr supporters who had been applying relentless pressure throughout the second half.

Clydebank's defence held firm under immense pressure, repeatedly denying Ayr United in frantic goalmouth scrambles. However, the visitors were not without their attacking opportunities. Former Ayr United player Moore spurned two golden chances to put Clydebank ahead.

Ayr United threatened on several occasions before the break, with Walker, McMillan, and Ingram all denied by some brilliant goalkeeping from Madden.

The second half began brightly for Clydebank as they took the lead from the penalty spot just two minutes after the restart. A cross from the right found Quinn, whose handball with teammate Monan injured behind him resulted in a spot-kick. Moy stepped up and converted the penalty to put Clydebank in front.

Despite their lead, Clydebank were unable to hold on for the win. Ayr United's persistence paid off in the dying moments, leaving the tie finely balanced heading into the second leg.
