Rangers held to draw after letting two-goal lead slip

Soham Town Rangers boss Steve Fallon will be looking for his players to make more use of the ball on Saturday after watching them squander a two-goal lead against Brentwood Town, writes Graham Clark.

Goals from Michael Simpson and Luke Stanley looked to put Rangers on course for maximum points in their Ryman League Division One North clash with the Blues at Julius Martin Lane.

However, the Greens were made to settle for a share of the points after being pegged back by Abbs Thompson’s 78th-minute effort and Alex Read’s stoppage-time penalty.

“It was a good performance against a decent team who are likely to be in the play-offs, but I still think we could have done a bit better,” said Fallon. “After going two goals down they made a couple of attacking changes and for some reason we let them back into the game.

“We didn’t do as well as we should when in possession with the ball.”

With a full squad to choose from, including recent signings Jordan Gent and John Paul-Duncliffe, for Saturday’s clash with Chatham Town (3pm), Fallon feels his side can quickly return to winning ways.

“We beat Chatham at home earlier in the season and I am confident that if we play to the standard we have over the last two or three months we are more than capable of picking up a result,” he said.

“We have got ourselves in a good position and this is now where we have to kick on if we want to be in the play-offs.”
