Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat says he’ll be treating this Saturday’s clash with Rossvale the same as any other game – and he’ll be urging his players to do likewise.

The Bankies boss moved from the Vale to Holm Park last season – and brought five players from his former club to his new one over the summer.

This Saturday’s game will be the first time the sides have met since Jamie Donnelly, Matt Niven, Frazer Johnstone, Joe Slattery and Liam McGonigle joined Clydebank in the summer, but Moffat says he won’t approach the match any differently to the other games on the Bankies’ fixture list.

He told the Post: “For me it just becomes another game.

“There’s a wee bit of spice in it with myself and the backroom staff but we had that last year and it was dealt with when we beat them.

“For the players, there’s a bit of spice again but my message will be to focus on what we’ve been doing and stick to the gameplan. I’ll be telling them not to play with emotion and just keep doing what we’ve been doing.”

Clydebank lost their place at the top of the Premiership on Saturday after their trip to Darvel fell victim to a waterlogged pitch, with Troon moving into pole position thanks to a 1-0 win over Rutherglen Glencairn.

Reflecting on the postponement, Moffat said: “It’s a bit frustrating because we wanted to keep the momentum going, but we also had it the other week with the Beith situation, so we’ll just get on it.

“We were keen to flip the game to our place but it’s Darvel’s right to refuse that so we’ll draw a line under it.

“There was a bit of rain a couple of days before the game so I’ve no issues with it and I’ve not got any big conspiracy theories about it.

“We provisionally had a friendly lined up for Friday but we never ended up putting in for a permit because Darvel got freed up from their isolation and as far as we knew the game was back on.

“It was frustrating to end up with nothing after planning ahead but we’ve got a friendly on Tuesday night.”

Bankies’ fixtures for the coming weeks have also been confirmed, with Cumbernauld set to visit Holm Park on Tuesday, December 29 before a tasty trip to Troon on Sunday, January 3.

Meanwhile, the third round draw for the Soccer Shop Challenge Cup on Friday handed Clydebank a home tie against Forth Wanderers, with the tie scheduled to be played on February 6.
