Tough test ahead as Lang return from winter break
Cambuslang Rangers boss Paul McColl hopes the winter break has not softened his players up too much as they aim to get back to winning ways.
Lang’s 1-0 defeat to title challengers St Roch’s put a halt to their unbeaten home league run of eight games before the two-week layoff.
The players have been enjoying a well-earned rest over the festive period but will be back in action on Saturday, away to Greenock Juniors in a 1.45pm kick-off.
Boss Stevie Mooney and Co are hovering above the relegation zone in the Central District First but could move up to mid-table with a win and if other results swing their way.
McColl, whose side defeated Greenock 2- 0 at Somervell in September’s fixture, said: “It will be a tough game. We beat them last time but they are pretty decent.
“They’ve brought a new manager in who has them well drilled and they will be well up for it.
“They did well in the league cup and they are a decent enough side.
“I would say their position in the table is probably a bit false. They’re in a position where if they win two or three games they can be up into the top half. “Hopefully their big park will suit us. “The break doesn’t help but hopefully the boys haven’t eaten or drank too much.
“For some reason a lot of teams are quite similar in the way they play but there are no easy games in this league.”
Cambuslang defender Robert Halliday is likely to miss the match at the Ravenscraig Stadium due to a knee injury but could be available for selection in the next fixture at home to Forth Wanderers.
