Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat admits feeling hard done by after his side lost 3-0 to Auchinleck Talbot on Saturday - their second loss on the bounce.

Gordon Pope opened the scoring for Talbot in the West Prem clash with goals from Bryan Boylan and Jamie Glasgow coming in the final minutes as Moffat’s men pushed for an equaliser.

Moffat said: “I think 3-0 is harsh on us - most folk would probably agree with that. It was two very late goals so I didn’t think we deserved that nor does it reflect the game as a whole.

“In the first-half I think we gave Talbot a wee bit too much leeway and only really started coming into it after 35 or 40 minutes with a few half chances.

“We’ve pushed to try and get something at the end and we’ve been caught on the break.

“I don’t think there’s any point in losing a game 1-0 and saying we did alright in the second-half.

“For me, we’ll always try and go and get something out of the game. I don’t know what it looked like from the side, but if we’d got a draw no one could have grumbled.

“At the end of the day, it’s a bit of sloppy play when we’ve committed bodies forward and a team like Talbot have punished us for it.”

Bankies were denied a penalty in the first 45 after a blatant handball in the box with Moffat adding: “I’ve not seen the handball incident back yet, but the boys were all adamant he’s stopped the cross with his hand.

“The frustrating thing for me is that, from the outside, people will look at 3-0 Talbot and assume they had a comfortable day.

“I thought with our second-half performance we didn’t deserve that, and one of the boys in the dressing room rightly pointed out at the end that the worst it should have been was 1-0.

“To come away with a 3-0 defeat is a bit sore, but we know we need to dust ourselves down and take all the positives from the second-half and move forward.”
