Lang boss ready for Forth

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports -

Cam­bus­lang Rangers will be ey­ing up a win in their fi­nal home league match of the sea­son.

The Lang wel­come one of man­ager Paul McColl’s for­mer clubs Forth Wan­der­ers to Somervell Park on Satur­day.

With just four games left, the ti­tle race is heat­ing up and the Lang gaffer is aware his team can’t af­ford any more slip ups.

St.Roch’s, who have two games in hand, closed the gap to just five points af­ter bat­tling back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 with Wishaw.

Fel­low hope­fuls Larkhall This­tle also kept up the chase with a com­fort­able 3-0 vic­tory over Bell­shill Ath­letic.

Mean­while, the Lang were handed a free week but that didn’t stop McColl from his foot­balling du­ties.

He made the trip to King­shill Park to wit­ness Forth, who are also set to play Larkhall today, Wed­nes­day, run out 3-0 win­ners over Neil­ston in their bat­tle to avoid the drop.

Com­ment­ing on this week­end’s match, McColl said:“It’s my old team. I played for them for around a year and a half so I know the club well. They have a good set up, good com­mit­tee and a good man­ager.

“They’re a de­cent side and it will be a dif­fi­cult game.

“I went to see them on Satur­day, they played re­ally well and de­served the win.

“They won 3-0 against Neil­ston and they looked like they had a cou­ple of bod­ies miss­ing so it could have been more.

“It won’t be an easy game and we’ll need to be at our best. They’ve got plenty of de­cent young play­ers there.

“They are due to play on Wed­nes­day too but I don’t know if they will be tired.”

Forth pipped Cam­bus­lang to the Cen­tral Dis­trict Sec­ond Di­vi­sion ti­tle last sea­son but both sides have had very dif­fer­ent sea­sons.

The King­shill Park side cur­rently sit third from bot­tom with six wins in 17 matches.

De­spite strug­gling at the wrong end of the a ta­ble how­ever, they have four games in hand over Ben­burb who are cur­rently in the top half.

Satur­day’s match kicks off at 2pm.
