Match Report


Rovers more readily mastered the treacherous conditions and did the bulk of the attacking, but had to be content with sharing the points.

The man who denied them victory was ex-Rovers keeper Madden, who twice brought off glorious one handed saves. In the closing stages he stopped "sure things" from Kelly, Jenkins and Dunne.

Clydebank threw away an easy scoring chance at the start of the second half when Rutherford laid the ball on for Fleming, but the centre's left footer was easily saved by Moffat.

Cunningham and McMurray were prominent in Rovers defence and several times came upfield to have a bang at goal. Dillon was outstanding among the half backs. The forwards while playing a constructive game, could have made more use of their chances.

For Clydebank, apart from hero Madden, the left wing pair, Moy and Baxter, made a good impression.
