Clydebank boss Gordon Moffat was delighted with the never say die attitude of his players on show once again on Saturday but believes they should have taken all three points.

The Bankies left it late to equalise against Rutherglen Glencairn in a six-goal thriller at Holm Park.

Liam McGonigle had put the hosts ahead with a curling free-kick but Glens turned things around through Tam Miller and Harry Mitchell.

Matt Niven nodded in an equaliser on the stroke of half-time only for Mitchell to get his second, and the visitors third, on 65 minutes.

With 90 minutes on the clock, Paul Byrne was dismissed for Clydebank for a last man challenge as he took one for the team – but it paid off as seven minutes later Joe Slattery found the top corner to earn the home side a point.

Moff was left fuming at the cheap goals his side gave away and feels they should have been in a more commanding position at the interval.

Speaking to the Post, he said: “The first 20 minutes was very good but even later on in the first-half we were good and in control of the game.

“We’ve gifted Rutherglen a couple of goals from our point of view, they’ll be happy they’ve worked set plays, but from us it’s very poor and we’re giving guys too much space in the box and we got punished for it.

“It’s not the first time this year we’ve been a bit slack at times in our own box and it’s something going into next season we’re going to need to address.

“I was very frustrated at half-time because we’ve absolutely controlled the game but find ourselves in at 2-2.

“I thought Rutherglen edged the second-half but watching it back we are on the offensive quite a lot but we weren’t quick enough onto turn overs in possession and gave them a wee bit of impetus.

“We’ve had to scramble late to get something from the game so overall it was pretty frustrating.

“The guys have character about them and certainly go to the final whistle. I think that’s a lot to do with the players fitness levels as well, we always finish games strong.

“The only exception would maybe be the Annan game in extra-time where we were dead on our feet but that was down to a few knocks and injuries that day.

“Overall, the guys are very fit and always go to the final whistle no matter what has been happening in the game.

“In hindsight and looking back on it with the situation we are in it was good to get a point but there’s huge frustrations we’ve let Rutherglen back in a game we are in complete control of so that’s the concern but there are some positives that we got something out of it.”

Bankies travel to promotion hopefuls Darvel on Saturday and with the Ayrshire side in a manic schedule of playing four games a week, Moff is hopeful of taking the game to the Recreation Park outfit.

He said: “Our energy levels and application are going to be really important as they have a really busy schedule so we need to make sure we go and get out the traps against them.

“There were too many times on Saturday we didn’t react to situations and possession turning over and we’ll need to do that down at Darvel because if you give those guys time on the ball they will hurt you.”

Kick-off on Saturday is at 2pm.

Elsewhere, Drumchapel United were just seconds away from clinching the Conference C title on Saturday – only for a late goal elsewhere to put their celebrations on ice.

The Drum despatched Ardrossan Winton Rovers in convincing fashion with a 6-0 win at Lochburn Park – but chasing Petershill snatched a draw at the death against Wishaw to keep their own hopes of winning the title alive.

Petershill play host to Glasgow Perthshire this Saturday knowing a two-goal margin of victory will be enough to snatch the trophy away from Drumchapel.

Meanwhile, Yoker Athletic return to action this weekend after a long lay-off when they host Wishaw at Holm Park ahead of their Scottish Junior Cup semi-final with Petershill at Newlandsfield on April 16.

Kick-off against Wishaw this Saturday is at 2pm.
