Manager's Programme Notes

Tonight we welcome a team rated as one of the Second Division's most attractive sides and after a thrilling game at Kilbowie Park on Saturday this is a rating we heartily endorse. Clydebank proved they are a side not to be underestimated in any way and in tonight's replay we realise we will have to work very hard indeed to get into the Fourth Round.

In Saturday's goal-less draw, which I rate a very fair result, we were perhaps lucky to hold out in the closing minutes but I would say we had the edge in the earlier stages. Kenny Cameron had an unlucky kind of day and had fortune been with him he would have scored three goals. lan Reid was probably the likeliest forward and he too could have grabbed at least one goal.

A game against Second Division opposition on their own park is always a tricky proposition and one invariably discovers they will play as if their lives
depend on the result. A quick look at some of the other games involving teams from the two divisions underlines this.

Generally speaking we handled the situation confidently and the defence was most steady. One had the feeling the Kilbowie Park boys realised they could pull off a shock the longer the game went on without a score and, as I say, the closing minutes were difficult for us.

In our last two home games, against St. Johnstone and Morton, we tossed away the points through carelessness in the second half. But in away games we have played steadily and are unbeaten since mid-November. This consistency must be injected into our home performances and we get
the chance to improve our record with two games this week.

But the immediate aim is to progress in the Scottish Cup and I feel confident we will be able to improve on Saturday's draw this evening.
