Clydebank U21s brought a disappointing run of results to an end at the weekend with an impressive 4-2 win against a tough Wishaw Wycombe Wanderers side at the Clydebank Community Sports Hub.

Falling to a 2-1 loss to Dalziel last week, the young Bankies were without a win in the league since February as they got things underway against Wishaw on a bitterly cold afternoon.

The home side warmed to the challenge, however, and took control of the game from the off before taking advantage of their early pressure with a crucial opener from Robbie Donaldson putting Clydebank in command.

Bankies then made the most of their dominance to double their advantage moments later with Alex Hunter’s low drive nestling into the bottom corner.

The game should have been over as a contest minutes later but Darren Law blasted over from eight yards.

The youngsters put what looked like a certain goal behind them quickly with Jordan Hay finding space in behind the Wishaw defence only to miss the target one-on-one with the keeper to let the visitors off the hook.

Sure enough, the Clydebank youngsters were left to rue missed chances as Wishaw fought back in a nervy second-half.

An uncharacteristic mistake from Sean Findlay, the club’s outstanding performer of the season so far, let Wanderers back in the game as they made the most of a sloppy back pass.

That looked to have rattled Bankies as, within a minute of conceding, they had allowed the visitors right back into it with Donaldson fouling in the area and Wishaw levelling proceedings from the spot.

The hosts showed maturity as they regained their composure and, after dominating play once again, deservedly restored their lead thanks to a fine curling effort from Hay.

Wishaw again battled back to make it a nervy finale with a number of dangerous set piece chances cleared to safety.

But it was Wishaw’s turn to rue missed opportunities when Donaldson’s powerful header secured a much-needed three points as the Bankies look to build momentum for a promotion push.
