Yoker manager Steven Reilly was disappointed with his side’s defending as they drew 2-2 with Clydebank on Saturday afternoon in the Sectional League Cup.

But the Whe Ho boss thought the game was evenly balanced and a draw a fair reflection of both sides endeavours.

Clydebank took the lead early on through Andy Paterson’s free-kick, but Yoker fought back with goals from Greg Maitland and Ryan Hynes.

But Clydebank’s debutant Peter McGill fired in 10 minutes later to make it honours even at Holm Park.

Reilly said: “I thought it was an evenly matched game.

“Both teams had their chances to win it but there wasn’t too much to separate us.

“It was a decent game in spells, but I’m disappointed not to have prevented the goals we conceded. Obviously Liam Campbell makes the mistake early on and I think their second comes from a foul on our player.

“We have to defend better though and it’s something we’re looking to improve. All in all it was a good, competitive workout for the lads.

Athletic faced Queen’s Park Under-20s on Monday night before they play Ashfield on Saturday.

McGill added: “We’ve got a game against Queens Park U20s on Monday and then back into the Sectional League Cup on Saturday, so we’ve had good preparation.

“We’ve scored a few goals in the games we’ve played, so we just need to tighten up a bit at the back.

“That said I thought both my centre halves James Ross and Richie Henry were outstanding.”
