Clydebank were dumped out of the Scottish Junior Cup with a 1-0 defeat away to Championship side Petershill on Saturday.

Roddy Paterson’s goal just seconds into the second-half saw Gordon Moffat’s men crash out to lower league opposition in the third round of the competition.

The Bankies boss made three changes to the side that beat Irvine Meadow last weekend with Gary McMenamin dropping into centre-back as Alan Vezza moved to centre midfield to cover the absence of Liam Rowan.

Wingers Cammy McClair and Kyle Munro found themselves on the bench with Jordan Shelvey and Del Hepburn returning to the starting XI.

At a blustery Petershill Park, neither side were able to create any real chances of note during the first 30 minutes. Instead, both teams were happy to keep safe possession without either goalkeeper having a save to make.

That was until Paterson forced a smart save from Marc Waters when his rasping effort saw the Bankies keeper tip it round the post.

Former Bankie Josh Watt then tried his luck but Waters was equal to it before in-form Bankies attacker Conor Lynass had a tame effort from distance easily held.

Less than a minute into the second period, Petershill went in front when James MacLennan threaded a ball behind the Bankies back line into the path of Paterson who coolly passed the ball beyond the despairing goalkeeper.

Moffat’s men seemed shell-shocked at going behind but they were relieved the hosts didn’t double their lead just five minutes later after assistant manager McMenamin misjudged a long throw-in.

It was only with 10 minutes remaining that Bankies looked capable of salvaging anything. Shelvey won possession wide on the left and found Hepburn but the latter’s effort went sailing over the bar.

Then, Clydebank’s first good move of the game was almost rewarded with the equaliser but striker Shelvey somehow managed to miss the target from eight yards when it looked easier to score.

Hamilton loanee Munro then forced the Petershill keeper into a terrific save as his free-kick from 25 yards looked destined for the top corner with the Peasy stopper able to get the smallest of touches to tip the ball over the bar.

Top scorer Nicky Little was next to try his luck, but his curling effort was easily gathered.

As the clock struck 90, and despite Clydebank pushing for a late equaliser that would have forced a replay, it was the home side who nearly got the second goal of the game.

With Bankies committing men forward, full-back Michael Bailey was caught in possession but Peasy’s last attack came to nothing as Bankies crashed out.

Clydebank now face Auchinleck Talbot this Saturday. Kick-off at Beechwood Park is 2pm.
