Match Report


Clydebank put on a dominant display from start to finish, overwhelming Alloa in a convincing victory. Alloa fought hard but were unable to penetrate the resolute Bankies defence.

Tony Moy stole the show with a brilliant first-half hat-trick. He opened the scoring in the seventh minute, finishing a Fleming pass past a helpless Alloa keeper Adam Hodge.

Just two minutes later, Moy doubled his tally with a clever header from a Rutherford corner flicked on by Fleming.

Alloa pressed for a response, utilising their wingers to put pressure on the Clydebank defence. However, they struggled to create clear-cut chances.

Baxter nearly extended Clydebank's lead in the 19th minute but miscued his shot after a good run down the left wing. He had another opportunity moments later but missed the target with a header from a Fleming cross.

Alloa threatened briefly with a corner in the 30th minute, but Dick Madden produced a strong save to deny Smith's header.

Clydebank continued to control the game, and Moy completed his hat-trick in the 37th minute with a close-range finish. Alloa responded immediately through Cleminson, who capitalised on a lapse in defence.

The second half began with a setback for Clydebank as Eddie Rutherford, who had been impressive throughout, was forced off with an ankle injury after a heavy tackle. Russell came on as his replacement.

Alloa showed more attacking intent in the second period, primarily down the left wing, but the Bankies defence held firm.

Watt, the Alloa right winger, was forced off with a knee injury in the 67th minute but returned to the field after treatment.

The final goal of the game came in the 76th minute and was all started by Moy. He embarked on a solo run down the wing before finding Fleming, who slotted the ball home to seal the win for Clydebank.

This was a comprehensive performance from Clydebank, with both their attack and defence shining. They thoroughly deserved the victory.
