There was a bumper crowd at Edenvale Park on Saturday to see the top of the table clash with local rivals Bradninch.
It was the visitors who started much the brighter and cruised into a three goal lead in the first 25 minutes with a brace from the prolific Max Atifeh and one for Curtis Goff and a real drubbing for the Rangers looked on the cards. But after the break the home side changed their shape and were in control for the most of the second half but were struggling to break down a defence ably marshalled by Todd Scrace. The break through finally came with ten minutes left when James Smith converted an Elliott Perrot free kick to give Rangers a glimmer of hope. Perrot then correctly had a goal ruled out for off side in the dying minutes but Bradninch held on for a valuable three points which lifted them above Rangers to the top of the table on goal difference.
A special word for ref Brian Reeby who used all of his experience to control a game and ensure that both teams finished with their full quota of players.
