Side aim to get back on track
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.”
