McColl runs rule over Hill
Cambuslang Ran ....P Rossvale Juniors ....P
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.
