Ten man Benburb take away all three points
Cambuslang Rangers manager Paul McColl was bitterly disappointed that his side couldn’t hold on to a point at home to 10-man Benburb last weekend.
The Lang boss saw his side lose their second game in a row in a 2-1 defeat to The Bens who boast the least amount of losses out of all the teams in the Central District Second Division.
Ryan Livingstone scored his second goal of the game in the 88th minute to heap more misery on Cambuslang who have now lost back- to- back league games for the second time in 2016.
Captain Neil Newman scored on his return to the side following a threematch suspension which was one of very few positives McColl could take from the defeat.
He said: “I think we must be saving our worst performances for the end of season run-in.
“It’s crucial we don’t lose another game.
“The first half was pretty even but they were the better team in the second half with 10 men.
“We are just in a lack of form at the moment and some of the players are off form.
“Too many of the players are not listening and think they know better.
“The first goal was a mistake and the second was a silly foul outside the box. The boy’s free kick was cleared but it fell to one of their players and they’ve scored from it.
“We are leaking far too many goals and we are making too many mistakes as well.
“It was a poor ending to the game. With just a couple minutes to go you are hoping that we can just hold on and then that happens.
“A draw would have been a fair result but Benburb are a decent side who are well organised. They have a lot of good, younger players up front.”
McColl highlighted the importance of the injured Paul McLaughlin who has missed two games through injury.
Thomas Kilmartin was also missing but the gaffer was pleased to have top goal scorer Bob Davidson back in the side.
Cambuslang will face Ashfield at Somervell Park on Saturday with the incentive of trying to avoid three straight defeats in a row.
The Lang could not have hit bad form at a worse time in their season as they go into the final four matches having lost four games in their last five.
“I think there is a good chance of us getting promoted if we win our last four games,” McColl added.
“We’ve been going well in the league all season but I’ve been really disappointed with the results recently.
“We’ll give it another bash on Saturday. Ashfield beat us last time but we had a few players missing that day.
“They are second bottom but that means nothing in this league because Royal Albert, who are bottom, drew with Port Glasgow, who are top, last weekend.
“There was a good crowd there on Saturday and we’ll hope we get that again this weekend.”
