Clydebank 3 – Cumbernauld United 0


CLYDEBANK got back to winning ways with a 3-0 win over Cumbernauld United on Saturday.

Late second half goals from Alan Vezza, Alan Frizzell and Nicky Little saw Bankies claim all three points and rise to fifth in the table.

Bankies boss Kieran McAnespie make two changes to the side that lost 3-0 to Maryhill, with Hashim Cole and Joel Kasubandi making way for Phil Barclay and Ross Cameron as Bankies reverted to a back four.

It was a slow start to proceedings at Holm Park, with no real chances of note in the opening exchanges. Only Jordan Shelvey fired a shot over as neither side threatened to break the deadlock.

As the first half drew to a close, Bankies stopper Josh Lumsden was forced into a flying save from David Dickson’s deflected effort from 25 yards.

Just before the hour mark, Bankies started to turn the screw and hit the woodwork. Mark Burbidge weaves his way down the left and crossed for Little, whose header smacked off the crossbar and bounced to safety as Bankies took the ascendancy.

Midway through the second half, Bankies made their first substitution as Alan Frizzell replaced Jordan Shelvey, a a switch which was about to pay dividends.

Holding off to defenders, Frizzell was bundled over wide on the right and Andy Paterson’s delivery from the resulting free kick was inch perfect for Alan Vezza, whose glancing header nestled in the bottom corner as Bankies took the lead.

Eight minutes later, Bankies doubled their lead. Mark Burbidge’s corner found Little who in turn fed Frizzell, who turned well and lashed the ball high into the net as Bankies looked set to win for the first time in three games.

And with a minute remaining, Bankies secured the win with their third goal of the afternoon. Once again Frizzell was involved as he burst down the right before crossing for Little who took a touch, turning the defender and firing low past Buchanan into the bottom corner.

Up next for Clydebank is a trip to league leaders Kilsyth Rangers. Kick off at Duncansfield next Saturday, April 22 is 2pm.
