Cam­bus­lang Rangers boss Paul McColl has ad­mit­ted there is room for im­prove­ment ahead of his side’s cup tie with Shotts Bon Ac­cord on Satur­day.

Gers have now suf­fered back-to­back league defeats go­ing into the game and McColl said he hoped they could cut out the “silly” mis­takes that cost them dearly against Ash­field last week­end.

He said: “It wasn’t a great per­for­mance on Satur­day. It was just one of those days with lack of per­sonel.

“In the sec­ond half we con­ceded some poor goals and the first goal was a mis­take where the keeper could have maybe done a bit bet­ter.

“It was just silly goals, the sec­ond goal was a bit scrappy.

“We had to put a right winger into right- back and we had a few guys miss­ing so we had to switch things about.

“There were four away on hol­i­day and some were in­jured but there are no ex­cuses, we had the men there to do the busi­ness.

“I wasn’t too happy with the firsthalf per­for­mance.

“We are only a point be­hind sec­ond place, so it is still early days.

“I’m hop­ing to get ev­ery­body back for next Satur­day and, hope­fully, we can bounce back.

“We’ve started the sea­son well. It is quite an even league this year.

“Any­body can beat any­body in this league but we’ll need to do a bit bet­ter
