Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat believes that his sides recent run of results has shown how far they have grown in past seasons.

Bankies have come through a period of three consecutive games against Beith, Darvel and Gartcairn with five points from nine against sides who will all have aspirations of clinching the title at the end of the campaign.

The latest result was a 2-2 draw at Gartcairn on Saturday, with the visitors doing things the hard way after Thomas Reilly and Darren Smith had Cairn in a comfortable position in the opening ten minutes.

Moff’s side rallied after that and got back into the game with two goals in as many minutes just after the hour earning Bankies a point.

Callum Graham poked in the first before Jamie Darroch slotted home a penalty in the absence of regular taker Nicky Little, who had gone off injured.

Going undefeated in the last three games keeps Clydebank on top of the Premier Division and Moff believes his side were unlucky not to end up taking all three points.

Speaking to the Clydebank Post, he said: “We lost poor goals from our perspective in terms of not dropping off when we lost possession and we stayed high and made it easy to for them to get the ball in behind us.

“With the quality Gartcairn have got you’re giving yourself a mountain to climb but we nearly climbed it and maybe deserved to win it.

“The first 10 minutes sparked us into life for the rest of the first-half but the finishing touch at times just wasn’t there.

“At half-time we spoke about remaining patient and keeping our composure to remain in the game and not give anything daft away. We had real momentum after making it 2-2 and it was just unfortunate that we never got over the line.

“It’s important for the mentality that we’ve had three really tough games and we haven’t lost any of them, even if we could have had seven or potentially nine points.

“It’s a measure of the group maturing a wee bit because we probably would have lost one of those last season. I feel like we’ve got a bit more resilience and knowhow to get us through the bigger games.

“When I finished talking to the boys at half-time, they were talking to themselves about winning the game which tells you the mentality we’ve got in the changing room. We’d have liked more points but there’s definitely positives to take from the last three weeks.”

It’s a different test for Clydebank this weekend who host bottom club Irvine Meadow on Friday evening.

Moff revealed he is expecting Friday night to be just as difficult as recent weeks, and believes dropped points against Medda earlier this season just goes to prove that.

He added: “Nothing really changes for us, it’s not as if because we have had a tough run of games then that means that this week is going to be easy.

“We’ve played them already this season and only got a point so we know how tough it’s going to be.

“They need points so their cause is just as big as ours in that respect.”

Kick-off at Holm Park on Friday evening is at 8.00pm.
