CLYDEBANK manager Gordon Moffat admits he and his players won’t be giving up on anything as they returned to winning ways with a five-star performance over Troon on Saturday.

Bankies picked up three points for the first time in for four matches with a 5-1 win over Troon to keep their title aspirations alive.

Thomas Collins set the hosts on their way before Liam McGonigle doubled the lead to put the home side in control at the break.

Callum Graham added the third in the first few minutes of the second-half only for Leyton Dunlop to reply immediately and Graham nodded in seconds later in a frantic three-minute period.

Lee Gallacher sealed the points on 72 minutes as Clydebank tasted victory for the first time since the end of January.

Despite recent results, the Holm Park side remain top of the Premier Division – although with much of the chasing pack likely to overtake them in the coming weeks with games in hand.

Moff admits Saturday’s showing was much more what he has come to expect from his team and hopes the result can spring new life into his troops.

Speaking to the Post, he said: “The performance was really good and after an even first 10 minutes we took control and unlike the last few weeks we had a real cutting edge about us and looked a threat whenever we went forward. 

“After we got the first couple of goals you could see the confidence coming back to the players and the wee link-ups and movements that we had pre-Christmas so we need to build on that. 

“We scored five but it easily could have been double figures against a side who have beaten Darvel and Beith this season – there’s a wee bit of chat that Troon never performed but I think that’s doing us a bit of a disservice. 

“As much as we did deserve criticism for the last few weeks it’s important to balance that and make sure we get the credit for Saturday. 

“We’ve got six league games left and 18 points to play for so we’ll go and get after as many as we can. 

“We certainly aren’t giving up anything and neither are the players so maximum points has got to be the target. 

“I know the demands there are to play for Clydebank and certainly as manager I’m not giving up on anything so we’ll be fighting for every point and see where it lands us.”

Clydebank face one of the chasing pack, St Cadoc’s this weekend, as they look to remain in the title race.

The two sides are yet to meet this season but Moff is very familiar with the talented players available to Martin Fellowes at St Cadoc’s.

He explained:  “We’ve got St Cadoc’s twice in the last six which is a unique situation but it means we know what to expect from watching them. 

“They like to build from the back and are a very good footballing team with significant resources at their disposal so it’s no surprise they are at the right end of the league. 

“They are a very dangerous side going forward but we showed on Saturday that we are as well so it should be a good football match.”

Kick-off at New Tinto Park on Saturday is at 2.00pm.
