Bankie gaffer Gordon Moffat admitted he couldn’t work out how his team didn’t take all three points against league leaders Hurlford United on Wednesday night.

Clydebank once again had to battle back from a goal down but had the better of the chances in the second half as they were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw at Holm Park.

It means it’s four unbeaten now for Moff’s lads and the manager was full of praise for his squad after the match.

He told club media: “I said to them as their manager, I’ve got to take huge positives from that, I thought we were excellent.

“I don’t know how we have not won the game.

“Well, I do, obviously some gilt-edged chances and a couple of offside decisions that were a wee bit strange, let’s say.

“But I think we deserved to win the game and disappointed for the boys that we never got over the line.”

The home side fell behind – for the fourth time in five games this season – on seven minutes when former St Mirren, East Stirlingshire, Annan Athletic, Albion Rovers, Brechin City, Clyde and Dumbarton winger Ally Love floated a pinpoint cross onto the head of Michael Mullen who nailed his header past Clydebank keeper Kieran Hughes.

It was a blow for the Bankies who had started the match well but they were on level terms on 37 minutes when Lee Gallacher’s fizzing free-kick from the right missed everybody and nestled into the Hurlford net.

The away side came out for the second period with renewed confidence as they looked to edge in front once again but it was the Bankies who had the better chances as first Liam McGonigle saw an effort strike the underside of the bar and then Gallacher caught a volley that forced Hurlford’s Wilson in goal into a fine stop.

But a winner wasn’t to be found from either side as the teams shared the spoils but the gaffer was only smiling at the end.

“That’s this league,” Moff finished.

“It’s always competitive but as I said, positives since the first day of the season where we were very poor and deserved nothing, it’s been a slow build.

“I think performances have been really good.

“We are four unbeaten now so aye, we’re in a good mood because I see a lot of things going right.”
