ROB Roy’s ten-match unbeaten run came to an end on Saturday when they were out-performed by a classy Clydebank side.

The 3-0 defeat at Adamslie Park was a tough game for Rabs and spelled the end of a three-month run of wins.

Manager Jimmy Lindsay admitted his team didn’t play well enough, but he’s hoping they will turn it around again for this weekend’s game.

He said: “There were probably too many players in the team who never performed. We were doing well with seven to eight playing to their maximum, but we struggled on Saturday.

“Clydebank did very well and capitalised on our bad performance. They deserved to win the match.

“The players were very disappointed to lose in the manner they did. If we had got a draw out of it, it would have been unfair against Clydebank.”

Rabs take on Petershill this Saturday. The last time they played the side on August 18 they lost 1-0, before going on their winning streak.

Lindsay says the team are looking forward to the game.

He added: “As a coach I’m looking for a reaction now from the team following their first defeat in 10 games.

“Petershill has only lost a couple of games in the league and done very well. We need to be at our best.

“Our supporters have been great the last 10 games and have been coming in droves.

“We’re hoping to stay in the cups going into the New Year, which also brings back supporters.”

Ron Roy play Petershill at Adamslie Park this Saturday. Kick-off is at 1.45pm.
