Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat celebrated a century and a half of games in charge with a 1-0 win over Pollok on Saturday to move eleven points clear at the top of the Premier Division – before insisting that there is still work to be done.

A second-half overhead kick from Ciaran Mulcahy was the difference between the sides, though it could have been more comfortable for the hosts in a match they dominated.

Results elsewhere meant that Bankies consolidated their spot at the top of the division, though they have played more games than the chasing pack, ahead of this weeks huge clash with Beith.

Moff had challenged his side to get back to their best on Saturday after a couple of below-par performances in their return to action after the festive break, despite still going through that period undefeated, and now the next goal for them is to start finding the net more often.

Speaking to the Post, he said: “The score line never reflected our dominance at times, especially in the first-half.

“The second-half was a bit tighter but I think we were still edging it and got the goal that we deserved.

“I was really pleased with the performance as well as the result – we had put a lot of emphasis at training in the build-up on passing the ball quickly and the boys did that really well.

“We had chances to make it more comfortable towards the end and when you don’t do that you could get hurt but I thought we deserved to win.

“The next thing for us to work is to look at scoring more goals but there’s different reasons why that isn’t happening just now. We’ve got new guys coming into the team and guys missing games but we’re still looking dangerous.

“We made the chances to score three or four goals on Saturday so there’s not too much drama on my part but I would like it to be a bit more comfortable in games in the last few minutes.

“When you hit a wee landmark you always want a win to emphasise it – it’s never much fun to mark a game like that with a defeat.

“Some managers these days aren’t lucky enough to go four, five or six years at one club so to get to that landmark but we still have completed what we came here to do so there is still work to be done.”

Bankies travel to Bellsdale Park on Saturday to take on last seasons Premier Division champions who will be looking to put a couple of disappointing results behind them having picked up just one point from the last six available.

Moff’s side are twelve points clear of fourth placed Beith, though have played five more games, and despite recent form only pointing in one direction, he refused to take anything for granted.

He said: “Beith are a top side, especially on their own patch and with the size of the game they will be difficult to crack. It’s a big game for both teams.

“We’ve beaten them already this season but they also beat us in the cup this season.

“There’s not a lot between the two teams and they are champions for a reason so it’ll be tough but we’re going in on good form so we’ve got to be confident.”

Kick-off on Saturday is at 1.30pm.
