Rangers will be disappointed at not taking three points from their home game on Saturday. We went ahead after 15 minutes with a Rhys Parsons strike and looked to have gone two up but a rare James Ansell strike was wiped out for a very close off side spotted by the Assistant Referee. The home side looked comfortable with The Camels not offering any threat although in the second half they came out and showed much more enterprise whereas Cully seemed content to conserve their one goal lead and looked sluggish going forward. Then with twenty minutes remaining a speculative effort from Mike Kempthorne clipped the ankle of James Ansell and instead of going wide it rolled into the bottom corner. This seemed to energise our lads as we upped a gear but despite Ash Donohue hitting the bar and several goalmouith scrambles we could not find the winner and it was two points lost.
Afterwards Lee commented that he felt the efforts of Tuesday night both mentally and physically took its toll on the players and it was difficult for them to raise their game after looking in total control after taking the lead. We now have a run of tough games so it will be interesting to see how we react.
