Gers wait on rivals to slip up
Cambuslang Rangers manager Paul McColl says the club’s promotion dream will only come true if his side keep on winning while others slip up.
With just five games left it was important The Lang got all three points against Lesmahagow as the pack gathers behind the leaders.
St Roch’s now trail McColl’s men by six points but have three games in hand while Larkhall Thistle, who are eight points off the pace, have four matches left to play. Both sides also have to face each other at Larkhall when something will give in the title run-in.
Meanwhile, Saturday’s 5-0 hammering of Lesmahagow gave McColl some light relief.
Dale Simeon’s brace and strikes from John Gemmell, Kris Gebbie and another from new signing Jordan Morton capped a wonderful afternoon for the men in blue.
McColl said: “It was a great day, we played really well. I don’t know if it was because of the weather but the park was great, there was a good crowd and everyone did well.
“It probably could have been 10. Their goalie did really well. He saved a penalty and a few shots going for the top corner. It could have been more and I don’t think The Gow would disagree. But 5-0 and no goals against us is a decent result.
“The Rock weren’t playing so we are six points ahead. All we need to do is keep winning.”
The Lang have a free week on Saturday and McColl has not decided whether to take in another game in the league.
While unhappy with the lay-off, the Cambuslang gaffer was pleased the weekend would give his players time to recover from injuries.
Jamie Macleod came off on Saturday with a sore back and Gemmell picked up an ankle knock. Ryan McBeth is still out.
“I’ll not be going to watch any of the teams around us because it just makes you frustrated,” McColl added. “But you never know, one of them could slip up.”
The Lang boss also revealed the club would appeal Robert Halliday’s red card.
