David McCallum made six changes in all following that defeat and it seemed to do the trick.

With Rangers B setting out with some intent, they had a few chances early on to make the breakthrough. Both Ross McCausland and Robbie Ure missed decent chances to open the scoring for the youngsters.

Tony Weston finally broke the deadlock on the 15th minute, intercepting a poor pass and rounding the Cumbernauld keeper to slot the ball home.

Amidst all the Rangers’ pressure, the Colts had a chance of their own, but Greig Allen made a vital block to prevent an equaliser.

Lewis MacKinnon scored the winner right at the depth to give Rangers the victory they deserved.
