Stafford Rangers 0 Whitby Town 2

Stafford's miserable season continued with another home defeat to mid table Whitby Town.

Whitby had early opportunities for Lee Mason and Steven Snaith before taking the lead in the 17th minute.

A corner from Mason hung in the wind and was headed home by Richard Pell at the far post.

Graham Armstrong should have scored a second for the visitors when he wrestled Darren Chadwick off the ball but he missed the target.

Whitby scored a second two minutes after the break. Jon Brain pulled off a fine save to thwart Armstrong but Shane Henry was on hand to slot home the rebound. Rangers did push for a goal, Chadwick forcing a fine save from Shane Bland with a point blank header. Whitby should have added to their tally but Brain made a fine save to thwart Dave McTiernan.

Bland made a fine save late on to thwart Jack Lees but Rangers yet again failed to trouble the scorers.
