Clydebank FC manager Kieran McAnespie insists that he has no regrets about his team selection.

That comes despite back-to-back defeats which saw his side lose their first league match of the season on Saturday against Auchinleck Talbot before crashing out of the Sectional League Cup against Petershill on Monday.

Despite a resolute first half, Talbot swept Bankies aside with four second half goals at the weekend.

Clydebank tried to put that first loss behind them with McAnespie making six changes to his side with Scott Morrison, Chris Black and Ross Alexander among those to be recalled to the starting lineup, but they could only find a single goal to their name after going down 3-0 to Petershill as they were knocked out of the cup that they won last season.

But McAnespie remains confident in the strength in depth his side has to offer.

He said: “We weren’t at it but we are confident in the squad we’ve got and we’ll need every single player.

“It’s a long season with injuries, boys being away with holidays and work, so we need to keep it fresh. We feel we’ve got a squad good enough to compete.”

Attention now turns to Saturday where they travel to in-form Kilwinning Rangers.

With an already lengthy injury list, McAnespie also revealed Del Hepburn will miss next weekend’s clash with the Buff.

But despite the injury concerns, he reckons his side will be able to put this week’s disappointment behind them quickly, adding: “We know our capabilities as a squad and we need to work to that level in every minute of every game.

“If we manage to do that, our potential and quality that we have within this group of players will shine through.

“We need make sure there is a reaction now and get ourselves up for it.”
