Gordon Moffat praised his side’s professionalism as Clydebank secured a hard-fought 2-0 win over Irvine Meadow on Saturday. 

Meadow captain Ben Carson suffered a horror injury as the game was delayed by half an hour before late goals from Del Hepburn and Nicky Little after the restart handed Bankies the points. 

The Medda victory was Clydebank’s fourth on the bounce, including a Scottish Junior Cup win, with the gaffer pleased with his side’s battling victory.

Moffat said: “First of all I want to wish Ben Carson all the best because it looked a really bad one. 

“It’s one thing we all hate to see in games and it put a dampener on things. 

“Both teams were professional about it and wanted to play on, and we knew we had a job to do. 

“It’s hard for both teams and for both sets of management but we handled it as best we could. 

“We just tried to keep the guys switched on and warmed up while we were waiting for the ambulance so it’s to their credit they went on to win. 

“The game itself panned out just as we expected it to. Irvine Meadow are a really hard team to play against because they’re compact, they’re physical and they’re always full of energy. 

“They brought that on Saturday and it unsettled us because we never really got into our rhythm. 

“We just had a quick debrief and we spoke about finding other ways to win and we’ve managed to do that so I’m pleased with that aspect. 

“In terms of our play on the ball, we all know we can do a lot better.

“I wouldn’t call Irvine stuffy because they’re up there and competing on merit but they all know their jobs inside out and they’re a right good junior team - and we’ve beaten them 2-0 so I’ve got to be pleased with that.”
