RECALLED Danny Quinn came off the bench to net twice and lead Stafford Rangers to only their second away league win the season at Matlock Town on Saturday.

Rangers had lost an early lead against ten man Matlock but top scorer Quinn reacted to being left out the prevous two games by levelling within six minutes of coming on and just five minutes remained when he struck the winner.

The Boro, whose one and only previous league win this term had been at Worksop in September, grabbed an 11 th minute lead when Jimmy Turner got on the end of a Sean Kinsella cross to put the visitors ahead.

Matlock equalised on 28 minutes through Oscar Radford but the home side found themselves down to ten men when Mick Harcourt was sent off for dissent towards the match referee.

However Matlock surprised Rangers by snatching the lead on 49 minutes with Phil Roe provided the finishing touch.

On 58 minutes, Rangers boss Greg Clowes sent on Quinn and the move paid dividends as the club's leading marksman tucked the ball home from close range after getting on the end of a Turner centre.

After Fabrice Kasiama had gone close for Rangers the visitors regained the lead when Quinn pounced again on 85 minutes for his 16th goal of the campaign.

This was Rangers' first league win in four and they will look to make it back to back victories when entertaining AFC Fylde on Tuesday night (7.45pm).
