Match Report


Clydebank delivered a dominant performance against a physical Queens Park side to secure a well-deserved victory. A fortuitous own goal in the fourth minute by Queens' right-back Charlie Gilmour set the tone for the match, and Clydebank never looked back.

Despite creating several chances, Clydebank were unable to extend their lead further, although Queens' defence grew more resolute after a shaky start. Queens displayed some promising midfield play, but their attacking threat fizzled out as they approached the Clydebank goal.

Clydebank fielded trialist Ian Gray in goal as Dick Madden recovered from a shoulder injury sustained against Montrose.

The heavy rain from the previous week left parts of the Kilbowie Park pitch unplayable, with standing water of four to six inches on the east side of the ground, forcing players to avoid those areas.

Referee Anderson's officiating decisions frustrated the Kilbowie faithful, with some feeling he lost control of the game and allowed for overly physical play.

The match was an entertaining end-to-end affair with Clydebank maintaining the upper hand. Tony Moy had a goal disallowed for offside in the 63rd minute after a pass from Moore.

Harry Rutherford, a fan favorite, got the last laugh, scoring a close-range goal after connecting with a header from Tony Moy.

This victory propelled Clydebank up the league table, moving them seven places clear of the relegation zone. In other news, Eddie Rutherford is expected to return for the upcoming match against Arbroath after training with Partick Thistle to regain fitness. Jim Fleming and John Boyd are also expected to be available after recovering from illness, while Tommy McGhee is making good progress on his ankle injury and could be fit to play as well.
