Lang No 2: We could have won cup tussle

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Dou­glas Dickie

Cam­bus­lang Rangers crashed out of the Scot­tish Cup on Satur­day af­ter a 7-1 drub­bing at the hands of Gir­van.

The Su­per­league first divi­sion side had too much over the 90 min­utes for the Somervell men, but Lang as­sis­tant man­ager Wil­lie Dob­bins reck­ons his side should have been lead­ing at half-time.

Wil­lie was in charge, with gaffer Paul McColl at a wed­ding, and he in­sisted the side per­formed well in the first half.

He said:“We went in 2-1 down but should re­ally have been 4-2 up. We cre­ated prob­a­bly five chances to their two and their‘keeper has pulled off some great saves. Even at 3-1 I felt we were still in it, but when the fourth went in the heads went down, and that was dis­ap­point­ing.

“That seems to be a prob­lem right now. If we get a few goals be­hind the play­ers lose hope we can win the game and we com­pletely lose our dis­ci­pline.

“Our play­ers are as good as any­one’s in our league but they seem to have that flaw. You will lose games, but you can’t lose games and be em­bar­rassed.”
