STAFFORD Rangers have gone joint top of the table after coming from behind to take the three points at Market Drayton Town.

In front of a record gate for the home side, largely made up of travelling Rangers fans - some 200 of them made the journey – the players were cock-a-hoop as the fans sang them off the pitch.

They had to wait until the last two minutes of the game for their victory which came courtesy of Jack Edwards who came on in 80th minute to save the day.

they had gone behind after 71 minutes but minutes later they were back on level terms when Ryan Wynter equalised.

It made for a pulsating finish, which was welcomed by manager Neil Kitching.

“It was tremendous, dramatic, exciting. It was a good game, end to end. We have got a spirit in the dressing room and the tough times galvanise us. This is a tough tough place to come on a Tuesday night.

“Things are bubbling nicely. I love coming off to the fans. Our young players are buzzing off that, the support they’re getting as they come off. We have got to keep that rolling. I’m chuffed we are getting 400 at home and 200 away. We have got to give them something to cheer about.

“There’s a sense around the club on and off the pitch that we are galvanised, we are all together. We have won some matches and a lot of the fans have bought into that. Hopefully we will see a few more on Saturday against Coalville, touch the 600 mark and we get another win and it just snowballs. When things don’t go quite so well I need the fans to stick with us.”
