Bot leave Bankies down in the mouth; Auchinleck 5 Clydebank .. .0 Alan Robertson.
Byline: JUNIORS WITH ALAN ROBERTSON
Skipper Alan Vezza told his team-mates to stop "mouthing off" and start using their heads after Clydebank's pointless start to the season continued.
Graham Wilson and Sean McIlroy grabbed a double apiece as Talbot left the Bankies rooted to the foot of the Super Premier.
Kieran McAnespie's newlypromoted side shipped four goals after the break and their captain admitted he was "embarrassed" by their second-half performance.
Vezza said: "We're miles off it, our heads are going down too easily. We spoke about it after the game. But we need to do it on the park - there's too much of this mouthing off."
Wilson stroked home Bot's opener in 16 minutes and added a second three minutes after the break. Dwayne Hyslop headed No.3, sub McIlroy dinked a fourth over keeper Scott Morrison before the same player completed the rout with a 90th-minute tap-in.
Arthurlie . 1 Glenafton . .1
David Gray rescued a point for the Glens but they were disappointed not to grab a winner.
Lie started the Superleague Premier Division clash the brighter and got their reward through Chris Lennon who fired in the opener on nine minutes.
The home side should have doubled their lead after the break when Lie forward Lennon waltzed through the Glens defence. His cross found Jordan Chisholm but he shot over.
Arthurlie were made to pay minutes later when Gray equalised and Glenafton took control of the game after that.
The Glens were unlucky not to come away with all three points after creating a string of late chances but their rivals held on.
Kilbirnie . 2 Hurlford .0
Budgie McGhie's Blasties revolution got back on track with a fine win over hapless Hurlford at a sun-kissed Valefield Park.
Reece Williamson netted in the first half and after the break Jon Scullion sealed the points with a spectacular free-kick.
Williamson had a couple of efforts saved by Ally Brown before he opened the scoring on 31 minutes. Scullion whipped a freekick into the box and Arnie Bembo nudged the ball into Williamson's path to poke past Brown.
It was two on 50 minutes as Glenn Mitchell toppled Reon Juskowiak for a free-kick and Scullion sent it into the net from 35 yards.
After a flurry of bookings, Williamson missed a chance to make it 3-0 when he headed wide.
Pollok .. . 2 Girvan . .2
Del Hepburn climbed off the bench to earn 10-man Pollok a share of the spoils with a fantastic finish.
Lok took the lead early on through new signing Stefan McCluskey before skipper Paul Gallagher saw red for a last-man tug on Robert Patterson.
Straight after the break the Ayrshire side equalised when Patterson's cross found Michael Reilly who tapped in at the back post. Reilly then doubled up by smashing the ball into the roof of the net after getting the break of the ball in the box.
Lok's equaliser arrived when Hepburn picked the ball up out wide on the left and after riding a few challenges, he cleverly curled the ball home into the bottom corner.
TOO EASY Talbot enjoy their fourth
