Glen­cairn .............. 1 Cly­de­bank............. 1 Glen­cairn drew their penul­ti­mate game of the sea­son with Cly­de­bank.

The home side made five changes to the start­ing line-up and there was space on the team sheet for four of the un­der-21 team, in­clud­ing a de­but for Njab­ulo Ndlovu in the cen­tre of the pitch.

It was Cly­de­bank’s fi­nal match of the sea­son and they needed a win to keep alive their pro­mo­tion hopes.

On 19 min­utes Hutchi­son made a su­perb save down low to deny Ste­vie Young be­fore The Glens opened the scor­ing in the 25th minute. The ball was fed in from the right to Cullen, and his clever head flick set up Ryan Ben­nett, who held off his marker and fired past Lums­den at his near post.

Cly­de­bank had no­tice­ably upped the tempo af­ter the in­ter­val and equalised in the 49th minute with a stroke of good for­tune. Nicky Lit­tle’s, shot took a de­flec­tion and wrong- footed Hutchi­son as it rolled into the corner of the net. Holms went close in 75 min­utes as he turned away from Dun­nachie but he pulled his shot across goal and wide.

Bur­bidge went close to steal­ing a late win­ner for the home side but his goal-bound shot took a de­flec­tion and flew wide.
