Clydebank had the ever-reliable Nicky Little to thank after his double helped them rescue a battling point in a 2-2 draw against Glenafton on Saturday.

Bankies were reduced to 10 men after Chris Black saw red, but Little’s brace salvaged a point with boss Gordon Moffatt praising his side’s spirit.

Bankies gaffer Moffat said: “At 2-1 down and down to 10 men with half an hour to go, we’d have taken a point. We’d never settle for that before the game, but under the circumstances it’s decent. If we had kept 11 men we might have got all three.

“I thought the boys built well on last week’s performance - we were hard to beat, compact and still a threat going forward. We managed to do what we’ve been asking so I’m fairly happy.

“It’s possibly a result we might not have got a couple of weeks ago. We had quite a frank chat after the Rob Roy game, and we’ve really upped the expectation in terms of workrate and being there for your mate effectively. That’s not a slight on the guys personally, it’s not that they weren’t working hard enough, it’s just that we weren’t working in our units.

“We’ve taken it back to basics and worked on it at training - literally walking through where you need to be in certain situations. We could see that in the game this week, which for us as a coaching staff was really pleasing. It’s still early days but with the system we’re playing at the minute, we’ve seen signs that they’re getting it.”

Elsewhere, Moffat also confirmed Hamilton Accies youngster Kyle Munro is set to extend his stay with the Bankies until the end of the season.

He added: “It’s an important move first and foremost for Kyle and his development. He’s going to be a top player, and I think he’s enjoyed what we’re doing here.

“Extending until the end of the season will hopefully be beneficial for both of us.”
