Cambuslang Rangers 0-0 Cumbernauld United

(Cumbernauld United Win 3-2 on Pens)

Central League Cup Quarter Final

Monday 14th May 2007

At Somervell Park

 

The curtain has finally dropped on Cambuslang Rangers season after a disappointing 3-2 penalty shoot out defeat at the hands of Cumbernauld United. The game had ended nil nil after the regulated 90mins but Cambuslang were unable put enough spot kicks away.

 

The game itself was a bit of a non event as both sides looked tired. Cumbernauld out to make it 3 out of 3 over Lang this season and that's just what they did.

 

Lang keeper had to be alert as he dived full stretch to turn McGuinness effort round the post after 7 minutes. On 21 minutes Lang had Doak booked for what looked a perfectly timed challenge but the ref some otherwise and cautioned the wee Gers defender. Cumbernauld had another great chance but Cawely headed just wide. Lang then had McGowan booked for a nothing tackle. Cumbernauld then had another great chance to open the scoring but another poor header went over the bar.

Cambuslang should have taken the lead 5 minutes after the restart. Doyle broke down the wing and his driven cross was met by Wyatt but the Lang striker somehow managed to get it up and over the bar from 3 yards out, a poor miss by his standards.

 

The visitors were reduced to 10 men when McGuinness was ordered off after a deliberate elbow on Hughes who required treatment. Minutes later and Wyatt had yet another chance to break the deadlock but this time he fired wide of goal.

 

The game ended in stalemate and went to the dreaded spot kicks and Cambuslang were hoping to reproduce the previous rounds form when they progressed via the penalties.

 

Coyle was first up for Lang but he had his kick well saved by the keeper. Cumbernauld slotted theirs to go in front. Hughes for Lang blasted his home to make it 1-1 then Cumbernauld missed. McGowan then saw his effort saved by the Cumbernauld keeper. Cumbernauld then scored despite a brave attempt from Fraser in Lang's goal. Next for the Lang was Kavanagh and he calmly slotted his home. Cumbernauld then scored again to make it 3-2 to the visitors. Robertson had to score to keep Lang in it but he never looked confident and his poor effort was easily saved and sent Cumbernauld through to the next round 3-2 on pens
