Man­ager Paul McColl made the most of the post­pone­ment of Cam­bus­lang Rangers’match with Ross­vale as he checked out this week­end’s op­po­si­tion.

The Lang play away to rel­e­ga­tion­threat­ened Bell­shill Ath­letic on Satur­day as they look to keep them­selves ahead of the pack in the Cen­tral District First.

As soon as he heard The Lang’s game was called off, McColl made his way to James McGrory Park to take in the The Hill’s match with St Roch’s.

But de­spite The Candy fin­ish­ing up as 2-0 win­ners, The Lang gaffer ad­mit­ted he was re­lieved he got the chance to take notes.

“It was dis­ap­point­ing our game was off but I got to watch Bell­shill who are a de­cent side,”he said.“What I saw from them on Satur­day was pretty good. If it weren’t for the missed chances they could have won the game.

“I was glad I got the chance to see them. They were de­cent in mid­field, up front, and in de­fence – so we need to be ready for them.

“I don’t know much about the park but we need to fo­cus on our­selves first and fore­most and try and get the win.”

McColl has been busy with trans­fer deal­ings while his team’s matches have been post­poned in the past two weeks.

Michael Collinder will have to wait un­til Satur­day be­fore a pos­si­ble de­but at Rock­burn Park and he could be joined by a fel­low striker.

The Lang boss is un­der­stood to be in talks with East Kil­bride’s Craig Hast­ings.

The 29-year-old, who net­ted 19 times for Kilby last sea­son and played in the Scot­tish Cup against Celtic, has fallen out of favour in Martin Lauch­lan’s side and Cam­bus­lang are the favourites to sign him. The club are ex­pected to an­nounce the news later this week.

Watch­ful eye Paul McColl
