Match Report


The Bankies made it through to the third round of the West of Scotland Cup for the first time since 2009 as they struggled past lower league opponents Whitletts Victoria.

The Vics will feel a little hard done by as they showed great work rate throughout and never allowed the Bankies any great flow. The winning goal came with 12 minutes remaining and capped off Clydebank's best spell of the match when McInnes spilled Andy Paterson's long range drive with the lethal Nicky Little ramming home the loose ball.

Both sides had earlier scored a penalty kick each. Little converting to give the Bankies the lead after Barclay was downed by Mullen. Then Balfour repaid the compliment after a clear foul by Burbidge in the box.

There weren't a whole lot of other chances in the match. The Bankies were certainly dominant overall, but other than a few good old fashioned Scottish stramashes in the box very little in the way of clear cut chances were created.

That makes it four wins in a row for the Bankies, but they will need to play a bit better than this if they want to go any further in the tournament.
