CLYDEBANK manager Gordon Moffat has challenged his side to reach the 60-point mark to end the season.

Bankies made it three games in a row undefeated on Saturday with a 3-2 win over Arthurlie as they remain the team to catch in the race for the Premier Division trophy.

Alan Kelly fired the hosts ahead only for Dylan Fletcher to quickly equalise before Lee Gallacher restored Clydebank’s lead.

Ciaran Mulcahy made it 3-1 in the second period with Jordan Leyden’s added time strike proving to be no more than a consolation for the ‘Lie.

The Holm Park side are currently eight points clear at the top of the league having played six games more than the likes of Beith and Auchinleck Talbot who could claim top spot if they are successful in their games in hand.

Four victories from their final four games will see Moff’s side reach 60 points and the Bankies boss is keen to see his troops set a target for others to catch.

Speaking to the Post, he said: “I thought we could have made it a wee bit easier on ourselves on Saturday but the windy conditions made things pretty difficult. 

“We played some great stuff in the first-half and kept it short but we also had Ciaran Mulcahy up front which gave us a really good outlet to lengthen the game. 

“Arthurlie had the wind at their backs in the second-half and it became difficult for us to get out but we still played some good stuff and got the third goal at the right time. 

“I’m sometimes on the boys’ case about managing games but I thought we done that really well on Saturday – up until the 94th minute – but other than that it was a well-deserved win. 

“I was frustrated over the winless run we went on because we were training well and doing okay in periods of games and we lost all the games by a goal which sometimes goes against you but it’s been a good response over the last few weeks. 

“The maximum points we can get to now is 60 so that’s the aim. That was the chat before the weekend, it was after the game and it will be at training this week. 

“60 would be a good total to reach, you don’t know where that will land you but it’s all we can do now. We’ve had that poor run and we need to take it on the chin.”

Bankies will be looking to keep on track towards that target this weekend when they travel to Troon.

Clydebank were 5-1 winners over the Ayrshire side at Holm Park just a fortnight ago, but Moff knows it won’t be so easy this time around.

He said: “I expected a response from Troon following that game because I know their manager well and he was so disappointed after that and they’ve gone on to win their last two games since then.

“They probably let themselves down by their standards a couple of weeks ago and it’ll be a different type of game down there. 

“From our side, we know we are capable of scoring goals against them so we need to try and bring that to the table next week.”

Kick-off at Portland Park on Saturday is at 2.00pm.
