With two teams both on the same number of points this was always going to be a tight match and so it proved to be. The first 45 minutes was very much a game of cat and mouse with neither team pushing too many men forward. The first real chance fell to Danny Baily when he met a cross from Ash Donahue on the volley at the back post but his effort was well parried byJason Peters in the Torpoint goal. The visitors then struck the post with a cross come shot from Lewis Young.
The second period was more open but chances were still few and far between. On 70 minutes Marcus Fanson was brought on from the bench and he was soon to make an impact as he latched on to a pass from Langers turned his opponent and found the bottom corner with his angled drive. Torpoint then changed their system and went with two up front but this made no impression on on the Rangers back line who were superb throughout, indeed it was the home team who should have put the result beyond doubt but they missed three gilt edged chances before the final whistle.
Hedley was delighted with the performance “everybody put in a real shift, I thought we were well organised and hungry to play with our two pocket dynamos in the engine room setting a great example with their work rate and composure on the ball. Our back four were always in control, so much so that Dom had one of his quitest 90 minutes between the sticks and in the second half in particular we were always a threat going forward, but everyone did their jobs and the lads on the bench demonstrated that we have now have real competition for places all over the pitch.
