Rangers Deportivo come from behind for strong win

BLYTH made the long away trip to Corbridge but came back with all three points.

Corbridge had the first chance of the game in the first minute and Alex Cockburn had to be alert in the Rangers game and tip over a long range effort.

Jack Bell then made a mazy run before seeing his shot blocked and then Reece Halliday saw his diving header go just over.

Rangers were doing all of the pressing and David Dunworth saw his fine shot pushed over by the home keeper for a corner.

The first goal when it came went against the run of play.

A long clearance over the Blyth defence allowed the on-rushing forward the chance to slip the ball past Cockburn and make it 1-0 to Corbridge.

Parity was restored soon after when Neil Nelson’s fierce shot hit the post but man of the match Phoenix Telfer slid the ball through to Dunworth who calmly dinked the ball into the corner of the net for the equaliser.

The second half started in much the same way with Blyth pressing from the off.

Shane Clough was unlucky when his long range shot came back of the post but less than a minute later a great cross from the left by Bell was bravely turned in from close range by Tom Fulthorpe to put Blyth 2-1 up.

A flowing move involving Clough and Halliday gave Nelson the chance to tuck home the third Rangers goal before Clough rammed home an unstoppable free kick to make the final score 4-1.
