Following their dismal display in the last match, Wanderers were given an immediate chance of revenge as they
entertained WH Rangers at Langborough Rec.
Alan Mellor, Alan Pearce, Dan Van der Laan-ODonnell and Oliver Bambrough were all missing and this forced Phil
Soane and Andy Kinch to play when not fully fit. It was clearly too soon for
Soane, who was forced off midway through the first half, with Owen Holland replacing him.
Wanderers found themselves only two goals down at half-time and had enjoyed some good passing spells within
the half. The best chance came when Kinch released Anthony Prior down the right
and after beating his man, he cut inside and pulled the ball back for Ford. His
shot was saved and then handballed away from goal by the Rangers defender. Despite
strong appeals, the referee refused to give the penalty.
In the second half Rangers picked up their game and scored three times however Jamie Gumbo Ryall fired in a
trademark freekick, awarded following a foul on Prior. Shortly after this Ryall
moved into attack as the injured Prior dropped into the midfield.
A second Wanderers goal quickly followed when Prior played a forty yard pass into the path of Ryall who coolly
curled the ball around the advancing Rangers keeper.
Rangers hit one more before the end but Wanderers showed great improvement and spirit and can at least take
heart from becoming the first side to score more than once against Rangers this season.
