Clydebank manager Kieran McAenspie admits he could not find one positive after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat away to Troon.

The defeat - Clydebank’s third in four games - means they now sit second bottom of the West Premiership with a solitary point after a draw away to Beith.

Former Hearts striker Ryan Stevenson opened the scoring for the Seasiders from the penalty spot at the weekend after Jamie Darroch was penalised for a blatant shirt pull inside the area during the first-half.

Bankies’ defensive woes went from bad to worse in the second period when a mistake from new arrival Jordan Kennedy allowed Troon’s Dylan Pooler a free run through on goal as he secured all three points for the Portland Park side.

And, with their recent form a real worry, Bankies boss McAnespie warned his underperforming side that he’ll look to make changes ahead of tonight’s league clash with Kilbirnie Ladeside at Holm Park.

“It’s the absolute basics of football,” McAnespie fumed. “We gifted them two goals and not one thing was done right. The last thing we want to do is be negative, but one point after four games is exactly that.

“We set up a team that we thought would will do well against each opponent, so it’s baffling to see us go from the Pollok performance [in the Sectional League Cup] to that. Yet again, we made some absolutely schoolboy decisions and the quality in the final third has let us down again. We’ve created chances, but they need to realise at this level you have to take them.

“I’m honestly struggling to put it all into words. We even had the wind with us in the first-half and barely had a shot at goal. It’s not as if we’re asking anyone to do anything that’s outwith their level. They’ve shown they can do it time and time again, so it’s a skill-will thing.

“Unfortunately, from a coach’s point of view, if they don’t do their jobs, then we’ll look to make changes. If we had the opportunity to make four or five subs today, then I would have. It’s just not good enough.

“I genuinely couldn’t find a positive from that game. Yes, we created chances, but we’re not following things in and our final ball was miles off it. We knew they had no pace at the back, yet we didn’t put one ball in behind - it’s baffling.”

McAnespie was also dealt an injury blow with Jordan Shelvey forced off during the first-half. The striker is now likely to face a period of time on the sidelines.

The boss added: “It’s a tough one - but it’s a team game and the squad need to buck up their ideas soon or we’re in a relegation battle already. It’s as simple as that.

“Nobody’s going to be nice to us, so we’ve got to get our fingers out tonight. Thank god we’ve got a bigger squad because we’re going to need them. Too many haven’t performed already this season and there are boys ready and waiting to take their jersey.

“Sean and I will have a chat and that will be with a view to making a lot of changes for the Kilbirnie game.”

Kick-off at Holm Park this evening is 7.30pm.
