Cambuslang coach Robbie Stewart admitted that his team are in a relegation dog fight as they slumped to bottom of the BT West Division One following their defeat to Lenzie.
After claiming just one point from their opening five games, Robbie was positive that the next win for his side would hopefully kick-start their season.
He said: “It was pretty standard stuff from us.
“We shot ourselves in the foot a couple of times but we competed well for the first half an hour when we took a 7-5 lead.
“But when we launched an attack we gave away an interception for a try and then the chap that gave away the interception got himself a bad injury.
“We played well the rest of the match but didn’t look like scoring.
“They scored two tries later that killed the game.
“We competed for the whole 80 minutes and we finished strongly on the front foot. I was disappointed that we were not more creative in attack.
“We were missing our usual standoff and had a few guys playing out of position.
“We were lacking a bit of experience in trying to control the game and it is something we need to learn quickly. A positive we could take out of the game was that our scrum play and line-out is improving each week so we are happy with that.”
Cambuslang made a positive start to the match and put Lenzie under pressure before Jones scored a well taken converted try.
Lenzie responded well and were very unlucky not to score when Moir broke down the wing and his kick ahead appeared to be touched down by the supporting Letford. However, the referee was unsighted. The game had now turned in Lenzie’s favour and they scored a try through Williams which was unconverted.
The game was in the balance before the break and Cambuslang were favourites to score when Baldman intercepted a long pass to sprint in from 50 metres for a converted try for Lenzie to put them in a 12 - 7 lead at the break.
Lenzie dominated the second period and scored a third try through Letford before McDermott scored the all important bonus point try in the final quarter to seal their first win of the season.
Cambus coach, Robbie believes that getting consistency when picking a starting line up will be one way in which they will be able to turn round their bad form.
He added: “We are struggling a bit. We have played five and lost five so it’s always going to be a challenge.
“We said to the team on Saturday, we are in a dog fight at the bottom of the table and we need to fight it out.
“I’m not saying we are in a false position but we should have more points than we have. “The first win will demonstrate the belief we have to compete against these teams but I hope it doesn’t come too late.
“We need to start collecting points, the sooner the better.
“Myself and the other coaches will need to identify what areas we need to work on and bring that into training.
“We have Allan Glen’s at home on Saturday.
“They beat us convincingly in the cup competition at the start of the season so the next game will see if we have improved.
“They are a difficult side and have a lot of experience at this level.”
