STAFFORD Rangers were dumped out of the FA Cup as higher league Boston United eased to a comprehensive 4-0 victory at Marston Road.
Rangers had gone into the tie unbeaten in five matches under caretaker boss Andy Mutch but they were soon up against it at home to the Skrill North visitors.
United attacked in numbers from the start and had the Rangers defence at sixes and sevens.
It was no surprise when Ricky MIller went clear of a square home defence to make it 1-0 on 18 minutes.
The lead was doubled ten minuters later when Michael Carr brought down MIller just inside the area and Spencer Weir-Daley converted the resultant penalty.
Little was seen of Rangers in terms of chances although captain Darren Bullock did force United keeper to tip over a header on 35 minutes.
Boston continued to dictate the proceedings in the second half and made it 3-0 after 66 minutes when Weir-Daley cut in from the left and beaten home keeper Jon Brain with a rising shot.
With Rangers unable to respond, Boston put the tie beyond all doubt when Miller netted his second of the tie with ten minutes to go.
Rangers will hope to get their cup hopes back on track when they entertain Stoke City in the Staffordshire Senior Cup, at Marston Road on Tuesday (7.45pm).
