Glencairn came from 2- 0 down with six minutes left on the clock to secure a point in an enthralling Cambuslang and Rutherglen derby.
Hal Bohme, Mark Bishop, Ryan Kerr and David Dunn made up the new-look Lang back four, while Paul McColl gave debuts to youngsters Dale Simeon, Dylan Hendry, Alessandro Savarese and Colin Boylan.
Willie Harvey gave first competitive starts to no fewer than six of his summer signings, including Craig McGregor, Jamie Hamilton and Jay McKay.
The visitors had the better of the first- half chances. In the second minute Paddy Cullen cleverly played McKay in on the right wing before he returned the pass and his strike partner clipped the shot wide.
Mark Bishop, who was up against his former side, made a clinical lastditch challenge to deny McKay in the six-yard box as he was set to pull the trigger on seven minutes.
Cambuslang had their first effort two minutes later when Dunn’s cross from the left found Macleod. The tricky winger nodded the ball down for Davidson but the striker fired high over.
Harvey was forced into making an early substitution as Alan Muir limped off with an injury and was replaced by Ryan Bennett.
Cambuslang took the lead on 34 minutes. David Dunn lifted the ball beautifully from the left for Macleod at the back post to head into the net from close range.
The Glens looked to hit back quickly through Del McNab and Jamie Hamilton but both their efforts flew wide of the mark. Cambuslang: Stewart, Bohme, Dunn, Kerr, Bishop, Boylan (Scott), Macleod (Stuart Davidson), Simeon, Savarese, Bob Davidson, Hendry (Newman). Glencairn : Hutchison, Hall, Fraser, Donaldson, McGregor, Muir (Bennett), McNab (Brown), Marshall, McKay, Cullen (Team), Hamilton.
Hamilton forced Stewart into a superb save low to his right as Glencairn put The Lang under severe pressure in the second half and the Lang number one collected a poor McKay effort seconds later.
The derby was not without its hot-tempered moments as Bennett clattered Boylan and Simeon was booked for a challenge on Marshall on the edge of the Lang penalty area.
On 66 minutes Davidson nearly set up Lang’s second. His drive across goal was tipped away from the feet of Saverese by Hutchison, and the danger was cleared.
Marshall hit a powerful strike that had both sets of fans applauding Stewart as he continued to keep out the Glencairn’s long-range efforts.
McColl replaced Hendry with defender Neil Newman on 71 minutes and The Lang bagged their second moments later.
Savarese, who was proving a handful for The Glens defence all afternoon, took his marker down the right wing. He made his way to the byline before McGregor slipped and the striker found a yard of space to drive a low cross into the six-yard box for Davidson, who took a touch away from the defender before flicking the ball beyond Hutchison.
With time running out for The Glens, Fraser Team ran on to a long ball forward and pulled his shot narrowly wide as Glencairn upped the ante once more.
McNab set up McKay just inside the area on 76 minutes but he shot straight down Stewart’s throat.
As Davidson was denied by Hutchison’s leg, Glencairn finally broke the Lang defence who had performed heroically for 83 minutes. Stewart Hall’s cross came invitingly in from the right wing and McGregor rose highest to head past Stewart.
And in added time Jamie Hamilton collected the ball from Antony Fraser before skipping between Newman and George Scott. From 25 yards out the 21-year-old unleashed a terrific strike with his right foot that bent into Stewart’s top left-hand corner to give his side a well deserved point.
