Rutherglen Reformer - - Motoring Guide - Marc McLean

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.”
