Rutherglen Reformer - - Juniors - Jim Lo­gan at New Peter­shill Park

Cam­bus­lang Rangers moved to within touch­ing dis­tance of the Su­per Leagues after a com­fort­able vic­tory at Ross­vale.

The Lang looked like their old selves and con­trolled the game with the hosts fail­ing to make many in-roads.

With only five min­utes on the clock the vis­i­tors had a great chance to open the scor­ing but Craig Hast­ing’s ef­fort went just over the bar.

John Gem­mell also went close soon after as he got on the end of a Robert Hal­l­i­day cross but failed to con­vert.

On 12 min­utes the home side tested Iain Ste­wart but the Lang keeper pulled off a fine save from the free-kick.

Lang pres­sure fi­nally paid off on 21 min­utes when Gem­mell rose at the back and his down­ward header was knocked in from close range by Thomas Kil­martin – his 15th goal of the sea­son.

That lead was dou­bled when Jor­dan Mor­ton fired in a crack­ing shot that the Vale keeper could only watch as it flew past him into the net.

Just be­fore the break Dale Simeon got in on the scor­ing act with a fine in­di­vid­ual ef­fort. A long ball from de­fence was taken down by the player and with one touch he took him­self away from the de­fend­ers and slid the ball un­der the keeper.

Cam­bus­lang knocked the ball about in the sec­ond half and had clearly taken the foot off the gas as the in­ten­sity of the match dropped.

Simeon had a chance on 54 min­utes but he fired over the bar.

The vis­i­tors were awarded a penalty with five min­utes left. Gem­mell was brought down by the keeper and got up to score from the spot.
