Cam­bus­lang ......5 Les­ma­hagow .....0

Cam­bus­lang Rangers rat­tled in five goals as they con­tinue to do all they can to have any chance of pro­mo­tion.

The home side took the lead af­ter only seven min­utes, when Jor­dan Mor­ton played the ball out to Robert Hal­l­i­day who whipped it into the box for John Gem­mell to head home.

A cou­ple of min­utes later and the lead was al­most dou­bled but Gem­mell fired inches wide from close range.

Cam­bus­lang were forced into an early change when Macleod had to be re­placed af­ter a knock and James Brown came on for him.

The Wee Gers grabbed a sec­ond on the half-hour mark when Dale Simeon grabbed his 21st goal of the sea­son. He re­acted quick­est and pounced to squeeze the ball in at the near post.

A cou­ple of min­utes later and Simeon struck again af­ter he linked up with Gem­mell.

It was more of the same in the sec­ond half as Cam­bus­lang dic­tated play and the Gow were chasing shad­ows.

Within a minute of the restart it was 4-0 to the Lang and game over when Simeon turned provider to set up Mor­ton who slid the ball into the net.

The Lang were awarded a penalty when Liam Gorm­ley was brought down in­side the area but Simeon failed to net his hat-trick as the spot-kick was well saved.

Things got worse for the away side as they were re­duced to 10 men af­ter a cyn­i­cal challenge on Simeon.

The sides were evened up shortly af­ter though when Hal­l­i­day was also shown a straight red be­fore Kris Geb­bie nod­ded home the fifth on 90 min­utes.
