Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports -

Cam­bus­lang Rgrs . 2 For­far West End ... 0 Cam­bus­lang Rangers con­tin­ued their build up to the new sea­son with a 2-0 win against East Re­gion side For­far West End on Satur­day.

The Lang rung the changes as they tried out more play­ers in dif­fer­ent po­si­tions .

The match started rather slowly with nei­ther side cre­at­ing any­thing of note although there were a few meaty chal­lenges fly­ing in form both sets of play­ers which re­sulted in the ref­eree hav­ing to have a word in a cou­ple of play­ers’ears.

It was a full 20 min­utes be­fore there was a shot at goal and it came from Lang’s Chalmers but his ef­fort went just over the bar.

Hal­l­i­day set up a chance for Lang when he played a fine ball to Boy­lan but his ef­fort pro­duced a fine stop from the West End‘keeper. He was at full stretch to fin­ger tip it round the post.

With a cou­ple of changes at the break, Cam­bus­lang be­gan to stamp their author­ity on the game and were push­ing For­far fur­ther and fur­ther back.

The home side took the lead on the hour mark when the‘keeper came rush­ing from his goal but only pro­ceeded to rat­tle it off the rear of Hal­l­i­day and the ball bounced 18 yards into the net with the de­fender in pur­suit but was un­able to get there to clear.

Cam­bus­lang dou­bled that lead when they were awarded a free kick just out­side the box and Dunn stepped up and fired past the keeper.

The game ended on a sour note when For­far were re­duced to 10 men hav­ing a man sent off for an al­leged stamp that did not how­ever, pro­voke any of the Cam­bus­lang play­ers.
