Kieran McAnespie has called on his Clydebank side to develop a winning mentality after being held to a 2-2 draw against relegation-battling Troon at the weekend.

Bankies were pegged back twice as the Ayrshire side nicked a point which left McAnespie urging his men to establish a more ruthless side.

Nicky Little and Cammy McClair were on the score sheet but the Seasiders hit back twice to take a point at Lochburn.

And while the Bankies, currently sitting seventh in the West Premiership table, appear not to have a lot left to play for in their remaining two matches, the gaffer insists that mindset will not be accepted at the club.

“Looking at the table there isn’t much room to move up or down but I don’t want to see them going through the motions between now and the end of the season,” McAnespie told Post Sport. “Troon were playing for survival whereas we won’t move much in the table but I want my guys to develop a winning mentality. I don’t want the players to have that kind of negative mindset at this stage of the season. 

“I want to see a winning mentality in every match - that means going out to win whether it’s a nothing match, a friendly, a training session or a cup final. I’m looking for them to show the same attitude in every scenario.

“I simply want to win games and I want that attitude throughout my team. There’s a fine margin between being a top team and being a mediocre team. We need to get the errors, lack of concentration and naivety out of our system to become natural winners. It will take time to get all that in place but it’s what we’re striving for here.

“We’ve got two games left now against Beith and we must cut out conceding silly goals. They’re the current champions so it will be a good double-header to finish the season.”
