Match Report


Clydebank suffered a 3-2 defeat at Links Park against Montrose, compounded by the early injury to goalkeeper Dick Madden. Substitute Harry Rutherford donned the gloves for the remaining minutes of the match.

Arthur Paterson marked his return to the side with a spectacular solo goal in the 27th minute. He dribbled the ball from midfield, evading challenges before unleashing a powerful strike past the Montrose goalkeeper.

Just four minutes later, Tony Moy doubled Clydebank's lead with a well-taken header from a pinpoint cross by Frank Russell.

However, Montrose fought back before half-time. Livingstone nodded home a header from a Harris cross two minutes before the break, and he repeated the feat seven minutes into the second half to level the scoreline.

Montrose completed their comeback five minutes later through Kemp. Livingstone provided a distraction as Rutherford prepared to save a free-kick, allowing Kemp to slot the winner past the stranded goalkeeper.

Martin (Montrose) and Baxter (Clydebank) were shown yellow cards during the match.

Clydebank are dealing with significant injury concerns, with six players currently side-lined. Manager Jack Steedman offered a positive update on Tommy McGhee, who might be fit to face Queens Park after recovering from an injury sustained against Albion Rovers two weeks ago.

Eddie Rutherford, signed earlier in the season but side-lined with cartilage trouble, has resumed light training and could be back in action within a few weeks.

John Boyd's absence due to tonsillitis further complicated Clydebank's team selection against Montrose. With Dick Madden now injured, the club is actively searching for a replacement goalkeeper before their next match against Queens Park.
