Eight’s great but one is plenty
Cambuslang Rangers boss Paul McColl has warned supporters not to expect eight goals every time the Lang play this season.
The Somervell men put on a scintillating performance to hammer Forth 8-2 on Saturday.
It was a stunning result against a side who had beat Lang to the second division title last year.
Five of the goals came from a trialist striker who McColl hopes to sign up this week, with the others coming from a Simeon double and MacLeod.
But, ahead of a home game with Johnstone Burgh this Saturday, the gaffer reckons the scoreline was a freak, even if it was a freak he was happy to see.
He said: “I can’t see that happening (scoring eight again this weekend).
“I’d take a single goal win, 1-0 or 2-1, whatever, as long as it’s three points. “It was a good result. “We scored some good goals, they weren’t lucky. At the end of the first half we had been the better team but they were still in, but in the second half we just obliterated them.
“We played good football on
a bobbly park. The trialist has played senior and we’re hoping to get him signed up.
“Bob [Davidson] has been working a lot so hadn’t trained much and dropped to the bench.
“It was important because we lost our last game.
“We knew it would be a hard game and I never thought we’d win by that scoreline.
“After the game I made sure there was no shouting about it.
“Other teams can get loud and start banging doors, but I reminded the players it was just another three points.”
Lang also gave their goal difference a major boost.
“They have now scored 16 times this campaign, four more than any other side.
The win sent them to the top of the table on goal difference, and Paul said: “Goal difference came into it in the sectional cup.
“You never know when you might rely on it.
“If we’re lucky enough to still be up there towards the end of the season then it might be important.”
Lang were also drawn against Lochgelly Albert in the Scottish Cup.
The Fife side will make the trip to Cambuslang on October 22.
