Match Report


Forfar, on last nights showing are a much improved side.

Despite the fact the Clydebank went ahead in 11 minutes when Cummings ran in to net from close range, forward hit back within two minutes with a well swerved equaliser.

Archie Knox hit a first timer from all of 20 yards into the roof of the net.

Clydebank were a well drilled side, but Forfar should have been ahead at half time.

In the second period it was the same story. Forfar pressing most of the time, but the visitors always looking dangerous in their breakaways.

After several near things at the Clydebank end, Forfar got their reward when right winger Wyles rose above the defence to head home Forfar's winner in 60 minutes.

Forfar were well served in defence by Fyfe and Malcolm while up front Potter, Buchan and Park were Best.

Clydebank had a fine keeper in Wilson, and Cummings was always troublesome up front.
