A Scorching, 20 yard, knee high shot by Queen of the South left half Jim Kerr in the 24th minute of last night's Scottish Cup second preliminary round second replay at Firhill ended Clydebank's gallant cup run.
Queens, who now meet Stirling Albion at Dumfries in the first round proper on Saturday thoroughly deserved their win.
They turned on a brand of open, direct football, which Clydebank were never able to match, and the wonder was that it took 300 minutes to separate the teams.
Kerr was the man of the match. Apart from scoring the vital goal - he might have had two more - he kept up a non stop service to the buoyant Dumfries forwards, who responded with some great moves that had the Clydebank defence in endless trouble.
With Kenny Dick's intelligent use of the ball creating numerous opportunities for the strong running McChesney and Lex Law, Queens dominated for long spells. And it was only the dogged play of Ernie Collumbine, Eddie Moore, and Tommy McGhee that kept Clydebank in the game.
Clydebank's forwards were a sad disappointment from the fiery, all action lot of the previous night. They never hit it off at all, and there was a great reluctance to shoot when they did get within striking distance.
Even Tony Moy, the two goal hero of Wednesday, was out of touch, and slammed an 11 minute penalty against the bar by trying to take it too hurriedly.
There was also a glaring lack of fight about some of Clydebank's forwards, but in the last 20 minutes Arthur Paterson, who had moved to centre forward after Eddie Jenkins substituted for Brazilian Ayrton Inacio at Half time, nearly pulled the game out of the fire.
Two brilliant saves by keeper Allan Ball, whose all-round display must have caught the eye of the watching Jock Stein of Celtic, and a bad miss by Paterson, signalled Clydebank's exit.
