Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat has challenged his side to improve on their Holm form next season.

The Bankies lost out 2-0 to Glenafton in their final home league game of the campaign on Saturday.

The visitors took the lead from the spot just after the interval, though there was a hint of controversy.

Jamie Donnelly brought down his man in the box but the goalkeeper made amends as he kept out the penalty.

But the assistant referee ruled Donnelly had stepped off his line before the kick – and Leon Murphy made no mistake with the retaken effort.

Moff’s troops looked for a way back in but were up against a goalkeeper in inspired form and the game was sealed in the closing seconds when Bankies threw bodies forward which allowed Sam McKee to finish on the break.

Clydebank came in to Saturday’s game after impressive wins on the road against Darvel the previous weekend and Pollok last Wednesday but have been left frustrated after dropped points to the likes of Rutherglen Glencairn and Glenafton in the same period on their own pitch.

The Bankies boss believes the long season may be catching up on his players and accepts the disappointment of some of the supporters over the disappointing home record this season.

Speaking to the Post, he said: “I thought we looked quite tired as a squad. I felt Wednesday took a wee bit out of us.

“I picked the same eleven again to try and keep a wee bit of momentum and maybe in hindsight I should have freshened it up.

“You can see the frustration in the fans with some of our home results and rightly so.

“Away from home it has been exceptional for a couple of years where we’ve only lost two games in a long, long time.

“With a couple of home victories we would have been right in the mix, so that’s something at the forefront of my mind to put right.

“There’s a couple of wee things in there we need to get better at, certainly being better on the ball on our astroturf pitch with our quality.

“I don’t want it to distract from a really good season in terms of progression, when we came in the team was tenth in the league so we’ve made a huge stride.

“Whether we finish third or fourth it’s going to be a huge stride forward and we need to try and build on that.”

Clydebank are on the road this weekend against Irvine Meadow in their penultimate league game of the season and Moff is targeting a perfect end to the campaign.

He added: “We’ve got quite a number of guys struggling with different things so we’ll need to have a look at it this week and see who is fresh and fit.

“We’re strong away from home so we’ll look forward to it and we need to try and get six points to finish the season.”
