STAFFORD Rangers showed no mercy against troubled Kendal Town when chalking up their biggest win (5-1) of the season.

The Cumbria visitors only fielded four players from their last outing, following the departure of their manager and numerous players.

Several lower league players were drafted into the Kendal team and Rangers took full advantage going ahead after just four minutes when Michael Carr was brought down in the area and top scorer Danny Quinn made no mistake from the spot.

Over the 90 minutes there were chances galore for Rangers, who made it 2-0 in 17 minutes when Carr drilled home from close range after Karl Ashton and Liam Walshe had won headers in the area.

A rare opportunity fell Kendal's way on 21 minutes when Jordan Armstrong drove over, before Rangers increased the lead on 34 minutes when Quinn set up Ashton for his first goal in Stafford colours.

Kendal created a few more chances in the second period, although Rangers always remained dangerous on the break.

On 69 minutes, Ashton chased a long ball from Jimmy Turner and raced away to slot past visiting Keeper Craig Dootson.

Four minutes remained when Kendal pulled a goal back through Simon Rawnsley.

Rangers who rounded off an emphatic victory when Fabrice Kasiama, who had gone close on several occasions, netted in stoppage time.

Boro boss Greg Clowes was absent at thre game due to illness and will now be looking forward to Rangers' next fixture at home to AFC Fylde on Tuesday (7.45pm).
