Cam­bus­lang Rangers.3 Forth Wan­der­ers ......3

Cam­bus­lang Rangers had to come from be­hind dur­ing this pul­sat­ing match and an in­jury time equaliser was needed to keep their pro­mo­tion hopes alive.

The vis­i­tors started the brighter and opened the scor­ing af­ter only 10 min­utes. A long ball from the back caught the Lang de­fence nap­ping and McLaren nipped in to knock past Ste­wart.

Cam­bus­lang were level af­ter 20 min­utes. What ap­peared to be a hope­ful box to the back post was met by the Forth de­fender, but he only man­aged to slice his clear­ance goal­bound and Dale Simeon made sure from close range.

Lang were re­duced to 10 men when Jor­dan Mor­ton was re­fused en­try back onto the park af­ter get­ting treat­ment for a bloody face. His re­ac­tion led to a straight red card.

Forth were back in front be­fore half-time in con­tro­ver­sial fash­ion. The ball looked to have gone out of play but McLaren’s fine ef­fort was al­lowed to stand.

Things looked all but over for the Lang as they con­ceded a third at the start of the sec­ond half. More slack de­fend­ing al­lowed Dunn time to knock home. But the home side showed great spirit in get­ting back into the game. Firstly Kris Geb­bie’s low free-kick cut the deficit.

Then Lang piled on the pres­sure but it took un­til the 94th minute for them to equalise, Geb­bie again find­ing the back of the net from a free-kick. The goal sparked wild cel­e­bra­tions among the Lang play­ers and bench. Lang: Ste­wart, Bohme (Hast­ings 83), Hal­l­i­day, Kerr, Bishop, Geb­bie, MacLeod, (Brown 57) Scott, Gem­mell, Simeon, Mor­ton.
