Lang will keep train­ing hard

Rutherglen Reformer - - Drivetime -

Cam­bus­lang Rangers co­man­ager Paddy Flan­nery says the side will be work­ing hard over the next cou­ple of weeks, ahead of their crunch league clash with Ross­vale.

The Lang have no fix­ture sched­uled for this week­end, but the league have handed them a home fix­ture with fel­low ti­tle con­tenders Ross­vale for Satur­day, De­cem­ber 27.

And the side won’t be tak­ing it easy over the Christ­mas pe­riod, know­ing that vic­tory over the side cur­rently one place be­hind them in the ta­ble could go along way to­wards the Lang win­ning the league ti­tle.

Paddy said: “We’ll be train­ing as nor­mal this week, and com­ing in for a ses­sion on Satur­day.

“We’ve got the Ross­vale game on De­cem­ber 27 and we want to be as fully pre­pared for that one as we can be.

“We’ve al­ready ex­pressed to the boys just how im­por­tant De­cem­ber is for us, in terms of stay­ing fit, and I can as­sure you, no one will be out there train­ing harder than us over the next cou­ple of weeks.

“After that, we’ve got Royal Al­bert and Forth, so we know what a dif­fi­cult cou­ple of games we’ve got com­ing up after that.”

This sea­son, the Lang have played 12 games, and sit a point ahead of Ross­vale, who have played nine games, so the play­ers know how im­por­tant it will be to get another win.

Paddy added: “It’s been quite a mild win­ter so far, with the odd cold or wet day here and there, and there’s been a few days when the frost has been threat­en­ing, but on the whole, we’ve been pretty lucky with our games this sea­son and the fact we’ve played so many.

“We’ve got eight games to go, and the good thing is our park has had a cou­ple of weeks to re­cover since our last game.

“By be­ing away to Port Glas­gow, and hav­ing no game this Satur­day, it’s good for the pitch, which is one of the best in the di­vi­sion.

“We’ll not be us­ing it much in the com­ing days, and will be keep­ing off it as much as we can, so we can keep it in the best pos­si­ble con­di­tion.”
