A tight game on a difficult, bobbly pitch which produced few chances. Rangers started slowly again but soaked up Broomwood’s early pressure as the game settled into a scrappy midfield stalemate. Our best opportunity came after 20 minutes when Xavier rattled a free kick off the bar. Zak made a couple of good saves, while Broomwood’s striker blazed over in a one-on-one just before half time.
Broomwood’s breakthrough came 2 minutes into the second half via a cross from the right wing and a strong header.
A draw probably would have been a fair result, but it was a below par performance from Rangers.
