Unbeaten home record finally ends
Cambuslang Rangers face a tough trip to Port Glasgow this Saturday.
Second-placed Lang are scheduled to make the trip down the M8, to take on the side who currently sit sixth, and harbour hopes of making a charge for promotion.
The Lang are hoping to put an end to their indifferent form that has seen them lose three and win two of their last five league fixtures.
Co-manager John Doyle said: “We’re hoping to have a few guys back this weekend, but we can’t afford to push anyone too hard. We tried it on Saturday and it didn’t pay off.
“We’re hoping to have Ross Hamilton back this weekend. When we played Perthshire away, he was man of the match, and we really missed him on Saturday.
“We’ve got a pool of 22 just now, and we’re really going to have a look at bringing in someone else, probably on loan, to get us through the next few weeks.
“We don’t really want to add to it, but we’re being forced into it.
“We’ve had a lot of injuries since the start of the season, and we just can’t go on much longer like this.”
Although the Lang haven’t played Port Glasgow this season, John knows about them.
He explained: “They’ve had the core of their side together for four or five years now, and they’ve got some very, very good players who could be playing at a higher level.
“The boy they have up front, Nugent, is very good, and scores goals for fun - I think he’s got quite a few so far this season.
“I think they’re probably weaker at the back, and that’s something we’d like to be able to take advantage of, but unfortunately we’ve been finding goals hard to come by lately.
“In the three games we’ve lost, the most frustrating thing was that we’ve not made the opposition keeper work hard enough.
“We need to stop passing it at times, and just have a shot at goal. We can’t always walk it in.” C’lang Rangers ..... 1 G Perthshire ......... 3
