Rangers will soon start having to look over their shoulders at teams below them after this defeat left languishing in the wrong half of the table.
Missing four regulars Rangers were down to the bare bones with their squad but they will look back at this game and be kicking themselves for not getting at least a point. We were slow out of the blocks after the long drive down to Newquay and it was no surprise when Godolphin took the lead although it needed a wonder strike from 30 yards to beat Nathan. We were soon back on level terms though when Marcus Fanson latched on to a Greeno through ball to level matters. The home side were then gifted their sec0nd goal on the stroke of half time following a defensive mix up so it was 1-2 at half time with Ranger having to play up the slope in the second half.
This seemed to help us and we played some tidy football without really threatening to score but with ten minutes a long range effort rebounded back of the post and the home striker was first to react to give them a 3-1 lead. Strangely this seemed to kick start us into producing our best football of the game, firstly Danny Baily had an effort clawed back off the line with players appealing that it had crossed the line, then we were thrown a lifeline with five minutes remaining when Greeno’s inswinging corner cret in at the near post. So we now threw the kitchen sink at them and Harvey and Beechy both had chances to rescue a point for us but it was not to be our day.
