Lang boss ready for Forth
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.
