Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat branded his side’s performance as “unacceptable” after they crashed out of the Scottish Junior Cup with a 1-0 loss away to Petershill on Saturday.

Roddy Paterson’s second-half strike was the difference between the sides as Bankies bowed out in the third round to lower league Peasy.

Moffat said: “It’s by far the poorest we’ve been since I’ve been back. To give that performance in a game of that size is not acceptable.

“I’ve said that to the players and I include myself and my backroom team in that because what we provided for the club there was not acceptable at all.

“I’m not taking anything away from Peasy because I thought they did well and stifled us. They stuck to their game plan and we didn’t have anywhere near the quality to break them down.

“We didn’t even create that many chances for us to be guilty of not being clinical. They got bodies behind the ball and we never moved it quickly enough. We had no urgency, nobody took responsibility and I’m really disappointed.

“We’re really hurting - I’m just really disappointed at the performance and what we put in. Ultimately the buck stops at my door, so I need to take responsibility for the performance. It just came from nowhere, especially from the level we’ve been playing at.

“Our preparation was excellent and we’ve gone and performed like that in the biggest game of the season - to go out in the third round is just unacceptable for this club.”

Moffat made three changes to the side that won four games on the bounce and explained his reasoning, adding: “With Liam Rowan being unavailable, we wanted to move Alan Vezza into the middle to be a bit more physical.

“We’re going to have to do that next week and probably for the rest of November with bodies coming in and out.”
