No league table has been added for this season.
There is no doubt that last week's match with Dunfermline was a bit of a frustrating affair. For long spells we controlled the play, but a fine display of goalkeeping by Ian Westwater kept us at bay.
I have to be pleased, however, how hard the side worked and the team played some decent football and there were a lot of positive performances.
None more so than that of Jerry O'Driscoll. Coming on as a substitute, he got our last minute equaliser and I was delighted that the youngster got a goal to take the weight off his shoulders.
A draw was the least we deserved, but unfortunately, we have thrown away too many points in other games to strangle our promotion ambitions and I am just disappointed that the game against Dunfermline was, from our point of view, purely academic.
Today we welcome Clydebank. They are always a very difficult side to beat and require victory to cement their First Division future. Although, like last week, there is much at stake for the visitors, there will not be the same kind of atmosphere and that is something we will just have to contend with though I am sure that our fans who are present this afternoon will give us the fullest backing.
As this is the last programme before our youngsters take on Celtic in the BP Youth Cup Final at Hampden on 30th April, I would like to take this opportunity of wishing them all the very best for this big occasion in their young careers.
They face a difficult task because Celtic are a very good side and our youngsters are very much underdogs. It has been a magnificent achievement to reach the final and hopefully they can once again demonstrate the talent and ability in evidence en-route to the final to go on and win the trophy!
