20’s Lose To Hibs

Hibernian 2 Rangers 0

Rangers were punished for a couple of first half errors in their Development League match against Hibernian at Ainslie Park this afternoon. The Ibrox youngsters improved after the break but couldn’t get the goal that would have got them back into the match.

Rangers were first to threaten on eleven minutes following a good passing move Tom Walsh’s shot from just outside the left side of the penalty area was just wide of Sean Brennan’s right hand post. Just over five minutes later the ball Broke to Oli Shaw on the edge of Rangers box but his shot flew narrowly over.

The home side made the break through just after the twenty-five minute mark, Kevin Waugh passed forward from defence to Danny Handling whose pass inside Jamie Mills found the over lapping Aaron Dunsmore, Robbie McCrorie failed to cut out his low cross and only succeeded in helping the ball on to Jordan Sinclair who found the net at the back post. The home side created another opportunity just over ten minutes later, Oli Shaw finding Ben Stirling inside the left side of Rangers penalty area with Robbie McCrorie saving at his near post.

Within sixty seconds Hibernian doubled their lead, Ben Stirling won the ball on the halfway line and progressed down the left, when he entered Rangers penalty area he was felled by a clumsy Tom Lang challenge and Jordan Sinclair converted from the spot.

Half-Time:- Hibernian 2 Rangers o

Rangers had a great chance to get back in the game six minutes after the break, Kyle Bradley picked out Zak Rudden and a great first touch took him clear of the Hibs defence but he was thwarted when Sean Brennan rushed from goal to make the block. Midway through the half Tom Walsh took a quick free-kick passing to Josh Jeffries who’s twenty-five yard effort was tipped over by Sean Brennan.

As the final ten minutes approached Ali Smith won the ball on halfway and broke towards the Rangers box but his shot was straight at Robbie McCrorie. The home side had the final chance in the final minute, Adam Watson progressed along the right hand byline and his cutback found Josh Peters who fired over.
