Clydebank boss Gordon Moffat is glad to see his side back on track after picking up back-to-back victories in the last week.

The Bankies made a disappointing start to the season in their first couple of games with an opening day defeat against Benburb followed by a 1-1 draw at Irvine Meadow.

It seems the Holm Park side have now turned the corner, however, after last weeks 4-1 victory over Glenafton was followed up with a 2-0 win at the seaside against Largs Thistle on Saturday.

Nicky Low and Lee Gallacher scored in either half to earn Clydebank three points and Moff believes his side's performance improved as the game went on.

Speaking to the Clydebank Post, he said: “Largs started the game brightly and we had to defend our box well – which we did, we had a few nervy moments but we came through that period – and once we got the goal it settled us.

“The second part of the first half was fairly even but in the second half we were really good. We got an early goal to make it 2-0 and that forced Largs to tweak some stuff and we got stronger and stronger.

“I thought our intensity was really good and we were winning the ball high up the park regularly. We used the ball well and really put our game plan for how we were going to get at Largs into play.

“We got the wide players in the game, the full-backs were high up the park and created a number of good opportunities.

“The opening day was a bit of a jolt to everyone that you’re not just going to get things handed to you in this league and we have gradually built on that.

“I thought the Irvine performance merited three points so we should be sitting with nine points but it’s been a good recovery after an opening-day disaster.

“The last three performances have been much better.”

It’s a challenging week for Clydebank as early pace setters Hurlford United visit Holm Park on Wednesday evening before an always daunting trip to Auchinleck Talbot.

Moff is keen for Bankies to get over their Hurlford hoodoo and whilst Talbot hasn't started the season well, he knows not to take a trip to Beechwood Park lightly.

He said: “It’s early days but Hurlford are sitting top of the league and that’s no surprise to me.

“We’ve not got the best record against them over recent seasons so we’ll need to a lot better against them this time to get anything.

“By Talbot’s high standards they haven’t started how they would have wanted but the minute you go down there and think you’re going to cruise it then you’ll be in for a tough game.

“The big games like that seem to take care of themselves so we’ll be ready for it and look to replicate what we did down there last year.”

Kick-off at Holm Park on Wednesday evening is at 7.45pm with Saturday’s fixture getting underway at 2.00pm.

Elsewhere, Yoker Athletic suffered another narrow defeat on Saturday – this time at the hands of Ardrossan Winton Rovers.

The Whe Ho gave away a cheap goal in the second half as they remain with just one win in four games so far.

They will look to get back on track against Maryhill at Lochburn Park, kick-off at 7.00pm, on Wednesday evening before welcoming First Division side Renfrew to Holm Park on Saturday in South Challenge Cup action. Kick-off is at 2.00pm.

Meanwhile, James Marks fired in a hat-trick for Drumchapel United as they beat Kilwinning Rangers 3-2.

The striker, who joined from Kilbirnie Ladeside in the Summer, raced through on goal and slid the ball under Craig Gordon to bring his side level on 26 minutes after Dylan Mackin put the visitors ahead.

‘Slick’ netted his next from the penalty spot before the break and Kilwinning equalised with a spot-kick of their own on 55 minutes.

Marks found the winner just after the hour with a powerful header from six yards following a corner as Adam Hopes’ men picked up their first win since the opening day.

The home games keep coming for the Drum with Thorniewood United visiting the Donald Dewar Centre on Wednesday, kick-off is at 7.00pm, before Cambuslang Rangers make the journey on Saturday. Kick-off is at 2.00pm.
