Clydebank booked their place in the third round of the Scottish Junior Cup with a 3-1 win away to Carluke Rovers on Saturday.

Cammy McClair, Chris Black and Conor Lynass were all on target for Gordon Moffat’s side who ran out comfortable winners against their League One opponents.

With defender Jamie Darroch set for a spell on the sidelines through injury, assistant manager Gary McMenamin slotted in at centre-back while Lynass replaced unavailable striker Jordan Shelvey in the only two changes from last weekend’s defeat to Pollok.

And, after a stuttered start, Bankies took the lead inside the opening 13 minutes.

Hamilton loanee Kyle Munro latched on to Chris Black’s pinpoint diagonal switch before clipping the ball across goal for McClair to stab in at the back post.

But less than five minutes later, Carluke levelled as Bankies once again made a costly defensive error.

From a seemingly harmless Rovers attack, Matt McLean was the culprit, allowing Stephen Larkin to beat him to the ball and finish from a narrow angle.

Despite the setback, the visitors continued with the high press and should have went ahead when Munro picked out captain for the day Nicky Little, but his header went over the bar.

After the half hour mark, Bankies managed to restore their advantage.

Some neat skill down the left channel saw Lynass beat his man before pulling the ball back to the edge of the box for Black to thump home his third goal of the season.

Both sides struggled to get a foothold on proceedings early in the second-half, but Moffat’s men could have increased their advantage just after the hour mark.

Rovers centre-back Mark Cassidy misjudged a headed back-pass with Little attempting an audacious lob that went well wide of the target.

Midway through the second-half, Clydebank grabbed the third goal of the game to kill it as a contest.

In a move that started in their own box, Bankies worked the ball wide to McClair on the left. He beat his man with a neat step-over and delivered a cross to the back post where Lynass was waiting to nod past Patrick McAllister.

With the tie effectively over, the Carluke keeper made a string of smart stops to keep Clydebank at bay. Having been sent through on goal, winger Del Hepburn delayed his shot and was denied by the outstretched boot of the Rovers keeper.

In the dying seconds, McMenamin should have opened his Clydebank account on his debut from a corner on the right, but his effort was deflected over as Bankies progressed to the third round for just the second time since 2015.

Bankies now return to league duty this weekend against Cumnock. Kick-off at Holm Park is 2pm.
