Rangers led Honton Town 2-0 with less than half an hour remaining but poor defending at two set pieces cost us two valuable points, but to be perfectly honest it was no more than the visitors deserved.
It was a promising start from the home team who swept into an early lead following a cool finish from Jack Bryant but chances were few and far between for the remainder of the first period.
Honiton were enjoying the lion’s share of possession without much of a goal threat and it was Rangers who extended their lead when Tony Pinder set up Joe Chamberlain to double our lead. Instead of consolidating our lead we conceded a sloppy goal from an inswinging free kick, and as Saturday we found ourselves chasing shadows as we began to tire against the youthful Honiton lads. A disputed free kick then led to the equaliser which Joe was unable to hang on to and it was the Honiton lad who reacted first to slot home the loose ball. Rangers should have been thrown a lifeline in the final minutes when Tony Pinder was upended in the box but the referee chose to ignore the claim.
Liam was naturally down after the game “I thought we would go on to collect the three points after getting our second goal but we lost our concentration and began to give away needless free kicks and we were made to pay the price.”
