Match Report


Clydebank emerged victorious in a scrappy encounter against Alloa Athletic at Recreation Park on Saturday. While the game lacked attacking flair, the Bankies managed to secure a vital two points thanks to a wonder strike from Douglas Hay.

Chances were at a premium throughout the match, with neither side truly threatening on a consistent basis. However, Hay provided a moment of magic in the match, unleashing a powerful shot from 35 yards that left the Alloa goalkeeper bewildered as it sailed into the net.

The young midfielder took a knock during the game, but early reports suggest he should be fit to face Brechin City at Kilbowie in their next outing. Brechin are on a good run of form, so Clydebank will need to be at their best to secure another positive result.

Another injury concern emerged for the Bankies with Malcolm Henderson being substituted four minutes from time due to a back problem. However, he is also expected to recover in time for the Brechin City clash.
