Match Report


Clydebank were the more aggressive side at Stenhousemuir but were beaten by the odd goal in three. The Bankies missed several chances before Muir took the lead. Afterwards the Warriors had to hang on grimly to save the points.

The Bankies featured Ian Porter in goals who was on trial from Cambuslang Rangers.

The opening goal came came in the 21st minute via the penalty spot after Ernie Collumbine handled with no danger threatening. McGuckin converted the spot kick successfully.

Bankies did not take too long to equalise for only eight minutes later Tony Moy scored when his shot deflected away from the keeper.

Baxter came on for the injured Henderson just before the break and tried hard to get his side moving.

Clydebank were the aggressors in the second half, but were shocked when McGuckin netted the winner from a great pass by their trialist outside tight.
