IT was a familiar tale for Clydebank boss Gordon Moffat as he felt for the second week running that his side deserved more from a fixture as they drew 1-1 with Beith.

Bankies were looking to get back to winning ways after the 2-1 defeat at Hurlford but were forced to settle for a point at Holm Park.

The home side had the perfect opportunity to take the lead after eight minutes when they were awarded a penalty following a handball.

Lee Gallacher stepped up in the absence of skipper Nicky Little but his spot-kick was saved.

Clydebank were punished for their miss just over ten minutes later as Josh Fowler got in behind the defence and lobbed the ball over the on-rushing Jamie Donnelly.

The hosts weren’t behind for long as Ciaran Mulcahy hooked the ball home from close range following a corner.

The pick of the chances in the second half for Clydebank fell to Liam McGonigle but his shot was tipped wide by Dale Burgess.

In the dying stages, Beith could have nicked it – but Kevin Watt struck a post after a smart touch and quick shot.

Moffat was pleased with the performance, despite not picking up three points, and claimed if Gallacher had found the net then it could have been a different story.

He told the club’s social media team: “I thought we played well, particularly in the first half – the second half was a wee bit more even.

“We moved the ball very well... it was a nice day and on our surface, I thought we passed it very well.

“I thought we deserved to win the game. That’s this league, though, and we almost lost it at the end with the last kick of the ball. However, we didn’t lose, which was important after last week.

“As the game progressed at the end we were really pushing and Beith actually finished really strongly in the last couple of minutes of injury time.

“They were a threat – they have pace over the top and we gave them a goal from our own doing. In the first half, the couple of opportunities they had were from us making errors and not switching on.

“Going forward, I thought we were a real threat and I’m just disappointed not to quite get there with the three points.

“If we go and score the penalty, we can maybe kick on a wee bit from that... but it happens.

“People stand up and are willing to take them and the keeper makes a good save then we find ourselves behind, so we did well to get back from that.”

Bankies are back at Holm Park this Saturday when they host Rutherglen Glencairn. Kick-off is at 2pm.
