Clydebank player manager Kieran McAnespie has urged the Bankie faithful to turn out in force for their crucial tie against Girvan on Saturday.

The Holm Park side currently sit in third in the promotion play-off spot with three games to go.

The Bankies also have home ties against Maryhill and Shettleston, with dates for the last two fixtures to be confirmed.

Girvan sit four points behind Clydebank with three games in hand over McAnespie’s side.

But the Bankies fate is still in their own hands, and the manager is hoping the supporters can get down to Holm Park to help give his team the edge, like they did on Saturday against Petershill.

He said: “The fans were unbelievable on Saturday, the noise they were making was great. The last time we went there we didn’t perform in the second half and quite rightly they vented their anger and disappointment.

“But on Saturday I hope they have seen the progression and the improvement with all the boys and the team. If they can get behind us on Saturday and make quite a noise on Saturday as they were a different class, because they’ve been great.”

And the former St Johnstone and Fulham defender said it wasn’t just an important game for the club, but also for himself at the beginning of his managerial journey.

He added: “It’s not just for the club and the fans but for us as well. Me and Marc [McCulloch] have to make sure we’re picking the right team and make sure they’re performing right, and you start to doubt yourself if you’re giving the right information so it’s huge.

“It’s a results based business now and that’s the way things are going to happen and doing the right things and staying positive.”

Kick-off at Holm Park on Saturday is at 2pm.
