Side aim to get back on track

Rutherglen Reformer - - Clyde -

Cam­bus­lang Rangers are look­ing to get their pro­mo­tion charge back on track this Satur­day.

The side’s first de­feat of the league cam­paign has frus­trated the man­age­ment team, but they now have a great chance to get back to win­ning ways this week­end.

Bot­tom of the ta­ble New­mains will be the vis­i­tors to Somervell Park, but co­man­ager John Doyle ad­mits that he will not be tak­ing this week­end’s op­po­si­tion lightly.

And he says it’s a mes­sage that he and co-boss Paddy Flan­nery will be drum­ming that into the side in train­ing dur­ing the week.

John said: “It’s go­ing to be a tough game. Right now, you just can’t pre­dict how games are go­ing to go.

“Look at the week­end there - East Kil­bride This­tle beat Perthshire, which was a sur­prise, and a few weeks ago New­mains beat Ross­vale.

“You can’t pre­dict what will hap­pen - some teams just need to put to­gether a cou­ple of wins and they’ll be right up there, chal­leng­ing for pro­mo­tion.

“I think there’s quite a few teams that will still have an eye on pro­mo­tion - Forth have a new man­ager in, and they were un­lucky not to take a point from us, while they got a good draw on Satur­day.

“You can’t pre­dict any­thing in this league.”

The Lang know they have some tough back- to- back fix­tures com­ing up, with a trip to face for­mer man­ager Alan Ward­law and his East Kil­bride This­tle boys the fol­low­ing Satur­day.

John said: “We re­ally don’t want to lose the next one, as we want to get our mo­men­tum back.

“That’s some­thing we’re go­ing to con­cen­trate on in train­ing this week - we want to re­group and get the boys’ heads back up.

“We know we’ve a tough cou­ple of games com­ing up over the next week and a bit, with New­mains this week, then away to East Kil­bride next Satur­day.

“We’ll be work­ing hard in train­ing, and we need to make sure we get back to where we were and be as pre­pared as we can be.”
