Rangers came away from Bodmin with all three points for the first time in our history thanks to another brace of goals from the in form Ash Donohue.
We were down to the bare bones with Simon, Will and Beds all having work commitments as well as a couple of the lads carrying knocks from the Launceston game.
The home team started much the brighter and Rangers were camped in their own half for long periods as they played up the slope but Adam was only called upon once or twice to make smart saves which we have come to expect of him now. Rangers grew into the game and had a couple of good chances before, with half time fast approaching, Bailo cut in from the left and forced Joe Moore into a save but the ball ran free to Ash who calmy slotted home from six yards to give us a half time lead.
We were first into our stride in the second period as we created chances with Bailo forcing a fine save from Moore and then blazing over the bar with a volley from six yards. Then Connor, who had come own for the injured Rhys dragged his shot wide after great work from Mitch down the right. We then saw a touch of class from Ash as he picked up a ball forty yards out and spotting the keeper off his line produced a sublime volley over his head to double our lead. Bodmin then through the kitchen sink at us for the last fifteen minutes but thanks to some stout defending and one unbelievable save from Adam we managed to keep our 15th clean sheet of the season which is surely a record for the club.
Liam was naturally delighted “It was a real struggle to get a squad together when we had to leave Cully at 5pm so we travelled with just the 12 players but they were all superb. Unfortunately the pitch did not suit our passing style of football but we adapted, and apart from the last ten minutes, I thought we were in control of the game. The players have a terrific attitude and work their socks off for each other which is one of the reasons why our “goals against column” is so good. We now have 57 points and it would be a great achievement for these lads if we could hang on to sixth place and maybe notch 60 points for the season.”
