WHILE he admitted it wasn’t a classic performance, three points from Saturday’s 2-1 win against Rutherglen Glencairn at The Celcius Stadium are all that matters for Clydebank manager Budgie McGhie.

Alan Vezza’s first-half goal was cancelled out by Sean McGuire’s strike.

Glencairn were reduced to 10 men early in the second half, before Nicky Little missed a penalty and it looked like one of those days.

But Little rectified his miss, slotting in the winner three minutes from time.

And the Bankies boss wants to keep the momentum going into the next game.

He said: “It was a good three points, it was quite an eventful game and obviously I thought over the 90 minutes we created more and better chances “But we didn’t take them, including a penalty and we left it late. Glencairn are feeling a bit aggrieved or disappointed as from their point of view they put a lot into it.

“But at the end of the day football’s like that, we’ve been in a similar position to them before, we’ll take the three points and move on.”

And with Kilsyth and Shettleston both losing at the weekend for the first time in the league, the Bankies now sit one point off the top spot.

With Petershill and Irvine Meadow winning at the weekend to stay in contention – and Girvan with games in hand – McGhie expects a tight league.

He added: “It’s another win and it’s a good day for us with Kilsyth and Shettleston both losing so it closes the gap for ourselves, Irvine Meadow, Petershill and Girvan.

“All those teams are in the mix for the top two and it closes the league up and makes for a really interesting campaign.”

Clydebank next head to Hannah Park to face Shotts Bon Accord, who are down in 11th in the table.

And while the Bankies beat them 3-0 earlier in the season, heading to their ground has never been an easy task for McGhie.

He said: “They’ll be fighting for their lives at the other end of the table, and we will need to work really hard and play well to get three points.”
