STAFFORD Rangers boss Greg Clowes was a delighted man after his charges hit back to defeat promotion-chasing Worksop Town, at Marston Road on Saturday.
Rangers conceded early after a bright start and Clowes said:"I've no complaints about their goal. It was a really good goal, but my players stuck at it and I didn't change a thing because we were doing so well.
"We knew we had to make Worksop defend and we did that and made it uncomfortable for them. Our third goal epitomised our performance. We chased the ball down, got a nice rebound for Fabrice (Kasiama) and he took his goal well.
"We came in 3-1 up and it wasn't a case of seeing out the game, because it wasn't that sort of game. It was very open and end to end. They (Worksop) were easy to defend in the second half.
"We stuck together and although the match was a bit scrappy we still had three good chances at the end."
"They came here as promotion play-offs hopefuls, and rightly so, but I felt we made them look poor.
"It wasn't a fact that they were, we made them look poor and it showed again what this team (Rangers) is capable of this season."
Rangers can now look forward to a Doodson Sport Cup tie at home to fellow premier rivals Nantwich Town on Tuesday (7.45pm).
It is Rangers first involvement in the competition this season and Clowes said:"It is very much a game we want to win. We are still in three cup competitions and I think this is great at this stage of the season.
"There'll definitely be changes, but I'll still be putting out a side that we think is strong enough to go and win the game."
It almost certainly means starts for the quintet of Sean Kinsella, Levi Reid, Lee Downes, Danny Quinn and Peter Heler all of whom started on the bench against Worksop.
