Bot leave Bankies down in the mouth; Auchinleck 5 Clydebank .. .0 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.

Forfar West End 0 Jeanfield Swifts1

West End are still searching for their first East Superleague home win of the season after slipping to their fourth defeat.

There was never much between the sides in the meeting at Strathmore Park but the home defence were caught out midway through the opening period.

Forfar's slip allowed Jeanfield midfielder Lewis Mackie to fire home and that was enough to secure the visitors their first away win of the campaign.

West End pressed forward in the second period but they were unable to find a route beyond a stubborn Swifts defence.

As a result the home side are rooted to the foot of the top flight, having won only one of their seven fixtures this season.

Dyce 4 Sunnybank .0

Gordon Forsyth sent Dyce Juniors on their way to a GA Cup rout.

The dangerman opened the scoring and paved the way for a storming cup victory.

The North Region Superleague leaders went on to dominate the first-round clash.

A futher three goals followed from Paul Esslemont, Steven Bartlet and Jamie McAllister.

Newburgh .. . 0 Longside . 1

Longside advanced to the second round of the GA Cup after Jake West scored the only goal at Newburgh Thistle.

The visitors controlled the cup tie for long periods and might be disappointed not to have found the back of the net more than once against Longside.

In the end West, with a well-taken goal, proved decisive.

Lochee United .. 3 Dundonald .1

Bryan Deasley scored an eightminute double as Lochee came from a goal down to close the gap on East Superleague leaders Penicuik.

Dundonald led just six minutes in at Thomson Park after Colin Wilson hooked home from a corner.

But United overcame the shock of shipping an early goal to level seven minutes later.

Deasley converted a penalty after Scot McComiskie was brought down in the box.

Former Dundee striker Deasley hit his second in 21 minutes when he slotted home Connor Birse's inch-perfect pass.

And architect Birse turned goalscorer on the stroke of halftime, knocking in a cross at the far post as Lochee moved within three points of top spot.


TOO EASY Talbot enjoy their fourth
