Paddy wants to fin­ish on a high

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports -

Cam­bus­lang Rangers co­man­ager Paddy Flan­nery wants his side to fin­ish off their sec­tional league cup campaign with two wins.

De­feats in their first two games have left Paddy and co-boss John Doyle feel­ing frus­trated.

But they hope to make amends tonight (Wed­nes­day) as the Lang travel to face Vale of Clyde, and then on Satur­day with a trip to East Kil­bride This­tle.

Paddy said: “The games are com­ing thick and fast now, and that’s the way we want it. We’ve now got two away games be­fore the league be­gins.

“The boys are all itch­ing to get play­ing again - they want to put Satur­day’s re­sult be­hind them, and are champ­ing at the bit to get back out there and get our first win on the board.

“We’re def­i­nitely look­ing for two wins from two.

“To be per­fectly hon­est, I don’t know too much about the Vale, as we’ve pretty much been con­cen­trat­ing on our­selves, but from past ex­pe­ri­ence, they are always an en­er­getic team who will get in and around you.

“We know full well what their ground is like and what to ex­pect, as we faced Bell­shill there last sea­son with St An­thony’s, but we’re not too sure what there team is like at present.”

Satur­day ’ s v i s i t to the Show­park will see Cam­bus­lang Rangers face for­mer boss Alan Ward­law for the first time since he left the club last Oc­to­ber, then shortly af­ter­wards took up the man­age­rial post with This­tle.

Paddy said: “The East Kil­bride game will take care of it­self. We’re just look­ing to get a win.

“We’ve not had the best of starts, and, to be hon­est, I can’t wait for the sec­tional league cup to be over with.

“The league busi­ness is what we will be judged on, but if we can win our last two league cup games, then that’s a great thing to have as we start the league off.

“We’re more than ca­pa­ble of tak­ing six points from th­ese last two games, and that’s got to be our tar­get. We want it, and so do the boys.”
