Side prepared for a real test
Cambuslang Rangers face a tough fixture this weekend against the side who led the league during the first few weeks of the campaign.
Glasgow Perthshire were the early division two pacesetters, but their form has become more patchy over the last month or so, and they have fallen off the pace.
When the sides met in October, the Lang recorded a convincing 3-1 away win.
However, co- manager Paddy Flannery says the Lang will not be taking anything for granted when the men from Possilpark arrive at Somervell on Saturday.
He said: “Perthshire are still a very good team. We know what to expect, as we’ve already played them this season and we’ve had them watched.
“We know in recent weeks they’ve been on a bit of a disappointing run, from their point of view, and it’s only a matter of time before they bounce back from that.
“We just need to be on our guard and to ensure that doesn’t happen against us.
“We’ve got an unbeaten record at home, and that’s something we’ve very proud of. We don’t want to lose that, and we want to hold onto it - if you’re going to challenge for the title, then you need to have good results at home. Hopefully we’ll keep that going this weekend.”
The Lang have had a handful of players carrying knocks after Saturday’s victory, and the club gave them the night off training on Monday to give them the best chance to recover for this weekend’s game.
Speaking on Monday, Paddy explained: “We’ve had four or five guys reporting in with wee knocks, so I’ve told them to take the night off and we’ll see them on Wednesday.
“Sometimes, when you’re carrying a wee niggle, all you need is a couple of nights with your feet up at home, with a bit of ice on it, and that can make the world of a difference.
“We don’t want the boys to aggravate anything, and want as many of the guys to be as fit as possible, so there’s no point in taking any risks with them.”
