Clydebank boss Gordon Moffat say he was "so proud" of his team as they forced Elgin City to a replay in Monday’s Scottish Cup second round clash on a historic night at Holm Park.

The Bankies could even have won it after a dominant second-half which Moffat described as "magnificent" – but will head to Borough Briggs on Saturday full of confidence after more than matching their League Two opponents and earning a replay through captain Nicky Little’s second-half equaliser.

Rory MacEwan fired the away side ahead in front of a capacity crowd – and with thousands more watching the BBC's live coverage at home – with a well taken goal from 20 yards after a quarter of an hour as the hosts struggled to get to grips in the first half.

But after a tactical switch by the manager, Bankies roared back into the game in the second half, with Little's spot-kick on 69 minutes levelling the tie after substitute Liam McGonigle was clattered to the ground by Elgin captain Euan Spark.

Moff admitted he may have got it wrong with his approach to the game in the first half - but said was delighted with his side's response.

Speaking post-match, he reflected: “Looking at the game, the first half-hour Elgin were well on top.

“There’s a few factors in that. Our shape was an issue. I tried to gamble and force the game from the start and it didn’t quite work.

"They got possession in the wide areas, and that was on me, so I made a quick change and I thought after the half hour mark we grew into it.

“It was a wee bit more even in the tail end of the first half, and once we got to grips in the second half I thought we were magnificent.

“I thought we should have won the game. I’m proud of the boys.

“It’s a different stage for them with a different quality of player and in the second-half I thought they really grabbed it. I asked them to go and grab it and not leave anything out there and they did that.”

Goalscorer Little dedicated his strike to the club's supporters and all those behind the scenes who got Clydebank to where they are today, competing in the Scottish Cup for the first time in nearly 20 years.

He said: “Tonight is testament to the committee, supporters and the fans who have been through a lot over the last 20 years.

"It’s a big occasion for them and I’m glad we gave them something to cheer about at least.”
