Johnstone Burgh continued to keep up the pressure on the Bankies but squandered a good free kick opportunity as Ryan Quigley blasted high and wide. Charlie Love, who had been booked in the first half for dissent, had to clear a header off the line to keep the deficit at one.
Clydebank upped the tempo though in an attempt to get back into the game. First Gavin McQueen sent in a low drive that was well held by Herbiston and then Kerr Allan headed over from a corner. It looked like being a costly miss as Johnstone Burgh almost made it 3-1. Easton in the Bankies goal could only palm substitute Alex Beattie’s shot goal ward but Jamie Hogg managed to get back on time and clear off the line to keep the home side's hopes of staying in the game alive.
However, it only delayed the inevitable as with not long over an hour on the clock Johnstone Burgh grabbed a third. Beattie, who had been close earlier, was not to be denied as he knocked the ball past the goalkeeper. Clydebank’s task was made tougher as McQueen was shown a second yellow card for what was deemed a foul on the touchline. Then, after Allan having an effort kept off the line which could’ve kept the game alive for the Bankies, Love earned himself another booking and a red card after he clipped a Burgh player who was on a marauding run. The midfielder knew he was off as he started was walking before the referee had gotten the chance to speak to him.
That knocked the wind out of Clydebank’s sails and it wasn’t long until the away side had the ball in the net for the fourth time. Following a melee in the box from a corner Quigley was on the end of the ball to smash home to kill the game.
Bankies had goalkeeper Easton to thank for keeping the score line down as he made two top saves to deny Weir. The first saw a good block by the legs of the keeper when it looked like a sure fire goal. The second was a fine stop as he tipped wide. In the end though it was a comfortable win for the visitors who were well on course for the three points before the sending off and deserved to go home the winners.
