Five-star victory roll for hot-to-trot Lang
McColl’s lads comfortably overturn The Broch
Cambuslang... 5 Fraserburgh ... 0 Cambuslang returned to hot form after a disappointing result last week - and had this Scottish Cup match wrapped up after just three minutes.
Manager Paul McColl admitted he didn’t know much about their Aberdeenshire opponents before the match, but by the end of the game he knew his side were superior.
Top scorer John Gemmell scored two goals in the first three minutes, and then sealed his hat-trick in the second half.
The striker’s goal tally for the season is now 12 goals in 12 games.
Chris Duff and Darren Ramsay also got on the scoresheet at either side of half-time.
Conor Cullen, a former Celtic youth, Hamilton and Partick Thistle goalkeeper, made his debut in the absence of injured Ian Stewart and was delighted to keep a clean sheet.
Lang boss Paul McColl said: “Fraserburgh weren’t world beaters but they were a nice bunch of lads.
“After those first two goals went in the game was pretty much finished.
“It’s good to get into the next round of the cup and we’ll be looking forward to the next match.
“John Gemmell’s a goal machine and our new goalie played well. I changed the lineup a bit for this match, resting a couple of players including Jack Breslin who is carrying a wee knock.”
The third goal came in 31 mins when Duff found the net.
Gemmell’s hat-trick arrived in 53 minutes when he found the net once again from the penalty spot.
Ramsay rounded off the win when he grabbed the fifth goal in 70 minutes.
Camby Gers face Renfrew, who are second bottom of the league table, at home this Saturday.
Manager McColl is warning his players they will have to roll their sleeves up for all three points, having previously lost 2-1 to Petershill when they were third bottom.
He said: “Renfrew might be in the bottom two, but there’s never an easy game in this league.
“That was shown in our match with Petershill when we took our eye off the ball and lost.
“If we work hard enough we should get a good result, but we have to maintain that the whole game. Not just in the first half, like we’ve done a few times this season.”
Saturday’s match kicks off at Somervell Park at 2pm. Kids gain free entry to the match with paying adults.
