Clydebank will have it all to do again after 10-man Hurlford scored a 91st minute equaliser to force a replay in the quarter-final of the Scottish Junior Cup on Saturday.

Jordan Shelvey opened the scoring for the Bankies as they looked set for the semi-finals before Ryan Caddis’ stoppage time cross-cum-shot flew into the top corner as the hosts snatched a late draw.

Bankies boss Kieran McAnespie made two changes to the side that lost to Glenafton last time out, with Nicky Little and Chris Black recalled to the starting lineup in place of Ross Alexander and Del Hepburn.

Bankies had lost 11 goals on their previous two visits to Blair Park, and Hurlford could have added to that number early on.

A free-kick from the left was only punched by travelling keeper Marc Waters, with captain Alan Vezza able to recover in the nick of time to head the resulting goal-bound header off the line.

The home-side then had vociferous claims for a penalty denied by referee Peter Stuart. Adam Hodge’s long throw in reached the penalty spot with Sean Higgins appearing to catch Liam Caddis but the protestations were waved away as it remained level.

Bankies failed to really test Hurlford keeper Alistair Brown during the first-half, but could have gone in at the break with a one-goal lead when a stray back pass almost caught the stopper out. Brown back peddled furiously but thankfully for the home-side the ball went just wide of the right-hand post.

Ford had the ball in the net early in the second-half after a corner from the left was helped in by Waters, but the referee blew for a foul on the the Bankies number one after Chris Robertson was adjudged to have impeded him.

Just after the hour mark, Bankies got themselves in front. Higgins found Little with a clever slide pass, who in turn flicked the ball on to send Shelvey through on goal. The striker took a touch to take the ball past the keeper, before tapping the ball into an empty net.

Shelvey should have then doubled his and Clydebank’s lead not long after. The striker rode a couple of challenges from the home defence before shooting into the side netting from a tight angle as Bankies looked to kill the game.

The striker took the applause from the travelling Bankies support as he grabbed his 15th goal of the season, before being replaced by Stevie Higgins for the final half hour.

Bankies were then given a boost when Hurlford were reduced to 10 men. Having been cautioned earlier in the first-half, Robertson was dismissed for a second yellow card after a foul on Sean Higgins in the middle of the park.

But there was to be heartbreak with virtually the last kick of the ball.

From the goalkeeper’s kick-out, the ball fell to Ryan Caddis wide on the left and his right footed cross-cum-shot evaded Waters and and cruelly dropped into the top right-hand corner to force the draw and a replay.

Bankies now host Hurlford in the replay this Saturday at Lochburn Park. Kick-off 2.15pm.
