RENFREW came from behind to beat promotion-chasing Clydebank 2-1 at Holm Park on Saturday writes David Brockett.

The victory is a shot in the arm for Frew’s survival hopes in the Super League First Division and they are now just four points adrift of safety.

Peter McGill’s early opener for the Bankies was cancelled out by Scott Morton and Anton Heffron as the visitors picked up just their second win of the season.

Bankies burst out of the traps and went ahead inside the opening four minutes of the match.

Nicky Little released Burbidge and a blistering trademark run down the right saw him float a ball into the area, with Peter McGill on hand to glance in his fifth goal of the season.

The home side then squandered the chance to double their advantage. Lurking at the back post, Stevie Young didn’t catch his shot properly as his effort flew wide.

Ten minutes before the break, Renfrew equalised. A strong penetrating run from Morton saw him afforded too much space to waltz through the Bankies back line and Calum Gow’s attempted clearance ricocheted off Morton’s boot and beyond the reach of Bankies stopper Josh Lumsden and the sides went in all square at the interval.

Renfrew’s momentum continued into the second half but it was Clydebank who almost grabbed the next goal. Good movement from lone striker Young saw him make space for a shot, forcing Burgess into a save low at his left-hand post.

Soon after, it was Lumsden who was called into action, springing to his right to punch Marc McDade’s effort to safety.

On 70 minutes, however, Renfrew took the lead. Ross Gallacher’s out-swinging free-kick was met by the boot of Anton Heffron, who directed the ball into the net.

Minutes later, the visitors should have extended their advantage when Bryan Mulgrew burst away after a misplaced pass and only a last-ditch block denied Renfrew a third.

There was just time before the final whistle for Burbidge to try his luck but Burgess was equal to it.
