Clydebank striker Aaron Millar came to the rescue on Saturday after his quickfire double helped secure a point in the 2-2 draw with Beith.

The Ayrshire side went 2-0 up at the end of the first-half before Millar, playing in his first home game since October, popped up with two goals in two minutes to haul his side level.

Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat heaped praise on his forward as his side battled back from 2-0 down.

He said: “It says a lot that Aaron is only just back and was disappointed to come off, obviously because he’s on a hat-trick. You can see he’s not had a lot of football, but he’s been training really well. He impressed last week and deserved his place this week. It was a lengthy lay-off for him so we’re all delighted.

“There’s a few ways we can look at the game. After being two down, getting a point could be seen as a positive.

“However, I thought that once we got back to 2-2, we had enough to get all three. We maybe didn’t have enough clear cut chances or enough situations to pick the right pass and get us in behind though.

“First and foremost, I thought it was a really good game of football and we both had and missed chances to win it at various stages, so on balance the draw is probably a fair result.

“I thought we were poor for the first 35 minutes, we struggled with the wind and our defence not being quite settled.

“Their keeper kicks the ball in quite a unique way and we just didn’t deal with that. Our centre-backs didn’t know whether to hold our ground or go and attack the ball, and that led to them getting territory and ultimately a two-goal lead.

“Kyle’s delivery for our first goal was top class, and Aaron knows where the goal is to put it in. We got a bit lucky with the deflection, but it allowed us to be more controlled in the second half.

“When you reflect on Aaron’s chance, even in the first minute, and Nicky’s header late in the second half, we had a few really good chances to even win it.”
