NICKY LITTLE has laughed off suggestions Clydebank will be fired up to show Pollok what they’re missing when he and his team-mates head through to Newlandsfield to square up to the Premiership leaders tomorrow afternoon.

The prolific hitman and scorer of the Bankies’ goal on their last visit to the Glasgow Southside, a 1-1 Sectional League Cup last-16 clash earlier back in July (Pollok went through on penalties) is one of an astonishing seven-strong band of ex-Lok players in the visiting ranks – eight if one includes goalkeeping coach Scott Morrison.

Although Little insisted: “I would imagine most Junior players look forward to running out at Newlandsfield where the playing surface tends to be one of the best and there’s always a big crowd providing a great atmosphere.

“This backdrop lends itself to be very motivating and it will be the same on Saturday for our guys, but I don’t believe there’s a single Clydebank player, least of all myself, thinking there’s a point to prove to anyone at Pollok.

“I went there and had an enjoyable time even if it didn’t work out as planned and I’ve moved on with my playing career just like countless others before me.

“Where I’ve been fortunate is in returning to a club like Clydebank whose playing squad is looking so much stronger than before and I’m just hoping this can be the season where we kick on and show our true capabilities.

“Early performances and results have not been to our liking but new manager Gordon Moffat has come in and everyone has taken a massive lift from his structured approach to training and games.”

His new charges have given Moff the perfect start to his reign via backto-back wins over Rutherglen Glencairn and Glenafton but the former Rossvale gaffer is convinced a more testing 90 minutes awaits.

He said: “Pollok are looking extremely strong and having been on the losing side against them twice already this season, I know only too well it will be difficult to claw back the points difference between us.”
