STAFFORD Rangers get an opportunity to move up a place in the Evo-Stik Premier relegation battle today.

Graham Heathcote's charges picked up a hard fought point in a 2-2 home draw against promotion hopefuls Blyth Spartans last weekend.

It was a point that put Rangers level with fellow strugglers Stocksbridge Park Steels who they visit today.

Last month, Rangers defeated the Sheffield based outfit 3-1 at Marston Road, therefore go in search of a second league double of the season.

A win for Rangers this afternoon (Saturday) would not only see them swap places with Stocksbridge they could also close the gap on fourth bottom Witton Albion to seven points.

Rangers will have four players making their first appearance on the road, including new striker Saul Henderson.

The 6ft 6in striker joined the Boro ranks on Friday, having signed from North West Counties Premier leaders Maine Road.

Henderson, who hit 17 goals for Maine Road this season, will be joined by other newcomers, Brian Smirkle, Lewis Chalmers and Joe Ballinger, all of whom made their Rangers debuts against Blyth.
