Clydebank boss Gordon Moffat doesn’t want his players to leave anything on the pitch as they prepare to make history on Monday evening when they take on Elgin City in the Second Round of the Scottish Cup.

The Bankies are participating in the competition this season for the first time since 2001 after becoming a Senior side once again earlier on this year.

Clydebank comfortably saw off Dalkeith Thistle in Round One to set up the tie with the League Two side and will be looking to reach the Third Round for the first time since the 1999/2000 season.

A sold-out Holm Park is the venue for Monday’s tie after the club sold more than 1,000 tickets – and they even had to warn of forged tickets making their way into the public domain.

The contest is also live on BBC Scotland and Moff hopes his troops make the most of the occasion.

Speaking to the Post, he said: “I want the boys to go and enjoy it. You don’t know how many times you might play on TV in your career and how many times you’ll play at a sold out ground.

“It’s really important the boys enjoy it but I don’t want them to get too hyped up with the occasion and they don’t play their usual game. I want them to go and do themselves justice. I’m sure they’ll do the club proud.

“We want to approach it similar as we would to any game. When we get the ball it’s important that we keep it, especially against league opposition. We don’t want to be chasing it too long.

“One thing I want is for them not to come out of the game wondering what could have been. I want them to go and really give it a go.

“We’re at home and they will have had a long journey so it’s important we go and, at the right times, go and get after them.

“It’s been a great response from the fans and it’s no surprise. We’ve had a great backing from the fans since we came to the club and it’s very much appreciated.

“It’s going to be a great occasion for the fans and the board. It’s a big milestone in terms of what the club have been trying to achieve.”

Clydebank warmed up for the tie with a 5-0 victory over Harmony Row in the South Challenge Cup on Saturday that came days after a 1-0 win against Benburb in the league.

Moff’s side are beginning to hit form again after a small blip that saw them go three games without a win having now picked up three clean sheets in as many games and he believes winning in any form is ideal preparation:

“We had a couple of wee setbacks but that’s all they were and we’ll probably have a couple more throughout the season,” he said.

“The response has been great and it gives us a wee bit of confidence. We know we’re going into a much higher standard of opposition but winning gives you confidence.”

Elsewhere, Drumchapel United were 3-0 winners over Yoker Athletic on Saturday in the Second Round of the South Challenge Cup.

Two early goals had the Drum on their way to Round Three before a crucial third was added with a quarter of an hour to go.

Drumchapel this week host St Roch’s as they return to league duty whilst Yoker remain in cup duty with a Third Round Scottish Junior Cup clash when they welcome East Kilbride Thistle to Holm Park.
