Cam­bus­lang Rangers’ search for their first win of the sea­son con­tin­ues as they lost their fi­nal sec­tional cup tie away to East Kil­bride This­tle.

With EK now man­aged by for­mer Cam­bus­lang boss Alan Ward­law, there were no fewer than eight ex-Lang play­ers in their line up, and they ran out com­fort­able win­ners with a 4-2 win.

Lang were miss­ing key play­ers in key po­si­tions, in­clud­ing Burns, White­ford, Cullen, Hamil­ton, Mar­riott and Ward.

Cam­bus­lang took the lead with their first at­tack, when EK de­fender Atha gave away a need­less penalty af­ter tug­ging at the Lang mans arm. The ref awarded the kick and Eas­ton sent Treacy the wrong way and slot­ted home.

East Kil­bride lev­elled on 26 min­utes when a shot looped up over Grier who was left help­less as the ball found the back of the net.

They then took the lead when McFad­den fired in an ex­cel­lent shot that the keeper ap­peared to lose sight of, and it found the back of the net.

Lang brought on Dy­mock at the break and the striker made an im­me­di­ate im­pact when he got on the end of a driven cross that found him un­marked at the back post and he slid in in to make it 2-2.

The home side had Fal­lon sent off for el­bow­ing Hamil­ton, soon fol­lowed by the Lang’s tri­al­ist full-back for pulling down Miles in the box .

Atha stepped up and fired the ball low past Grier and give the home side a 3-2 lead.

EK killed the game with a fourth on the break. Miles bust for­ward but no Lang de­fender was able to get a tackle in and he was al­lowed to run 15 yards be­fore fir­ing the ball past Grier and round of a com­fort­able win for the home side.
