Glenafton made 3 changes to the eleven that started against Auchinleck on Monday evening with Dean Currie, Leon Murphy and Michael Moffat replacing Adam Caldwell, Ryan Nisbet and Hugh Kerr.

Glens run of four league wins in a row came to an end going down 3-2 to Cambuslang in what was their third game in five days. Relegated Rangers opened the scoring on 22 minutes after a sustained period of pressure saw them win four corner kicks in a row. The fourth was fired in from the right to the far side of the box where it struck off the chest of the unmarked Robbie Leighton sending the ball well outside out the box which he quickly recovered and cut inside a couple of defenders before unleashing a low shot from inside the ‘D’ through a packed box and into the corner of the net.

There were be no further scoring in the first-half.

At the break Glenafton made a double substitution Sam McKee & Alex McWaters making way for Ryan Nisbet & Hugh Kerr and the change paid immediate dividends.

On 53 minutes Dylan O’Kane won the ball inside the Glens half and rolled the ball forward to Michael Moffat who quickly laid it off inside to Leon Murphy and from the edge of the centre circle he lobbed the ball over the Camby defence for Hugh Kerr to chase and gather at the outskirts of the box from where he drove forward to lash the ball into the net from 15 yards.

Hugh Kerr brace taking his goal-tally for the season so far to 20

The home side regained the lead on 72 minutes. Scott Anson deep in his own half launched a high ball up the left which was readily gathered by the Glens before the defenders got into a fankle giving the ball away cheapy to Ben Richmond to drive to the corner of the six-yard box and drill a low ball past keeper Aiden Glavin.

Glens drew level on 84 minutes after Dean Currie floated a high ball into the Camby box and although the defender won the ball in the air it fell for Michael Moffat who took a touch and then tried to guide it into the corner of the net only for it to bounce off keeper Andy Wilson’s shins and there was Hugh Kerr to bounce and slam the ball home from 15 yards in off the post.  

A point appeared to have been salvaged by the Glens to at least extend their unbeaten run to five games in a row. But no! Two minutes later Camby were awarded a penalty kick after a short throw into the box concluded with recipient being impeded and Nickey Fraser slotted home what proved to be the winner.
