Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat hopes to add some new faces to his squad in the coming weeks with an injury crisis hitting the Holm Park side.

The likes of Nicky Little, Thomas Collins and Jamie Darroch all sat out of Friday nights 3-1 win over Irvine Meadow as Bankies extended their lead at the top of the Premier Division to six points.

Liam McGonigle capped off a flowing move when he tapped home James Grant’s low cross just after a quarter of an hour before Callum Graham came back to haunt the club he left to join Clydebank by nodding in the second on 28 minutes.

McGonigle made the points safe when he headed in the third before the hour mark with Euan Baird’s 79th minute goal proving to be nothing more than a consolation for the visitors.

Moff admits with the bodies he was missing then getting over the line with three points was his only concern and believes scoring early was vital as he hinted at the new faces that might be checking in at Holm Park over the next couple of weeks.

Speaking to the Post, he said: “The win was the most important thing just to open up that wee gap again with a three-week break in the league coming up.

“Parts of it could have been better but we had a lot of issues through the squad so it was a good night overall.

“The onus was on us was to break them down and the first goal was really good in terms of what we work on and playing the ball down the sides.

“It’s a typical goal for us so that got off us and running and set plays is something we work on a lot so the other two coming from them was pleasing as well.

“We’ve had a trialist defender in for a few weeks but he needs to get up to speed because he hasn’t had a pre-season.

“We’ll look to try and get something done this week with him and hopefully we’ll have a striker in as well, that deal is about 90% of the way done, and we might try and get one more in the wide area as well.

“The defender is a really experienced player and was club captain at his last team.

“The striker is very experienced as well and knows the level and the league so we’re trying to get that sorted out but he’ll be a really good asset. In the wide area, we might look for a bit more youth and energy so we’ll look at one or two there.

“It will bolster us going into a tough game in December when hopefully we’ve got some of the injured guys back as well.”

There’s no scheduled fixture for Clydebank this weekend and whilst Moff would normally be keen for the games to keep coming as his side look to keep clear at the top, he admits the break comes at a welcome time.

He added: “Normally I would want to keep the momentum going but where the squad is just now I think it’s really good timing for us to have a wee reset.

“The guys that are fit and able to train will have a bit of recovery this week and then we’ll up it a wee bit on Thursday before giving them the weekend off, and then we’ll be back into our normal sessions next week in the build up to the Pollok game.

“It’s a good wee break for us and gives us a chance to get one or two back and a rest to another couple who are beginning to feel it.”

Clydebank return to action on December 9 when they host Pollok in the West of Scotland League Cup.
