Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat praised his side’s cool heads as they left it late to come from behind and take all three points at Rutherglen Glencairn on Saturday.

The Bankies made it eight away wins on the bounce after Joe Slattery headed in on 78 minutes and substitute Chris Black lobbed the goalkeeper three minutes later to secure a win at the Hamish B. Allan Stadium.

The Glen’s were awkward to break down with their tight defensive unit and Moff could see his players starting to lose their heads as early as the first-half, but at the interval he urged his troops to continue to believe in themselves.

Clydebank have fought back to take something from a game on several occasions already this season and the Bankies boss admits he knew his side would find the winner on Saturday.

Speaking to the Post, Moffat said: “It was a big win for us. We spoke about the importance of the game, obviously it was just three points at stake, but when other teams around you aren’t playing, it’s important to try and put points on the board and when you go a goal behind it made the win feel even more important.

“It’s difficult to try and break down a back five. I could see the boys getting a little frustrated and I said to them at half-time that if that’s happening then that’s playing right into Rutherglen’s hands.

“We started the second half a lot better and were moving it a bit quicker, but we got sucker punched. We had to go to Plan B after that and change the shape and be a bit more aggressive, which got us back into the game.

“It was getting to the stage where you’re starting to think it’s not going to come. There was a few flashing across goal but I asked them not to panic.

“When we’ve been 1-0 down in the past the boys continue to believe in themselves and in each other. When we got the equaliser I just felt we were going to win the game. The boys never give up.”

A home double header is up next for Clydebank, starting with the visit of Hurlford this evening [Wednesday, kick-off 7.30pm] before Kilwinning Rangers make the journey on Saturday.

The Bankies have failed to win at Holm Park on four occasions this season and Moff is keen to see his side improve on that.

He said: “We want to make Holm Park a wee bit more formidable, we’ve dropped a few points there.

“Hopefully we can continue the form from the Dalkeith game and take that into Wednesday and Saturday because the home performances haven’t been quite there compared to the away form.”

Elsewhere, Yoker Athletic booked their spot in the Third Round of the Scottish Junior Cup with a 3-2 win at Girvan on Saturday.

The Whe Ho fell behind early on at Hamilton Park through Martyn Brown’s long range strike but responded well after the break with three goals in fifteen minutes turning the game around.

Shaun Gallacher equalised before a double from Ross McDonald, including a 55th minute penalty, but the hosts did hit back through Ross Clark.

Girvan then went on to receive three red cards in the closing stages as they finished the game with just eight men.

Next up for Yoker as they look to make it nine without defeat is a trip to Showpark to take on East Kilbride Thistle. Kick-off is at 2pm.
