20’s Beat Caley Thistle

Rangers 2 Inverness CT 1

Rangers Under 20’s beat Inverness CT tonight at Forthbank in the Development League, in truth it was a scrappy ninety minutes which was reflected in the three goals scored.

Inverness had the first chance on five minutes the attack was into the right side of the penalty area and when the shot came in Robbie McCrorie saved at his near post. Rangers replied five minutes later with an attack into the right side of the Inverness penalty area with Amin Abaradan shooting into the side netting.

A couple of minutes later Josh Jeffries combined with Ross McCorie on the right and when the ball was moved inside Ryan Sinnamon shot narrowly over. The visitor’s had a chance on twenty five minutes their attacker latched on to a slack Kyle Bradley pass to break into the box but shot straight at Robbie McCrorie.

Rangers took the lead on the half-hour in bizarre fashion, Ross McCrorie got to the byline on the right after combining with Liam Burt, from his low cross a defender got a touch that took the ball away from the keeper and across goal where Chris Brown knocked the ball into the net for an Own Goal. A couple of minutes before the break Jordan Gibson passed to Amin Abaradan who’s superb pass picked out Ross Lyon’s run into the left side of the penalty area but his shot was weak and the keeper saved easily.

In first half injury time Ryan Sinnamon and Ross Lyon combined on the left and when the ball was passed inside Jordan Gibson side stepped a defender before shooting narrowly past the keeper’s right hand post.

Half-Time:- Rangers 1 Inverness CT 0

Caley Thistle drew level five minutes after the break and it was a disaster for keeper Robbie McCrorie. The Rangers keeper was caught in possession inside his penalty area and the attacker rolled the ball across the six yard box for Kier Smith to knock the ball into the net. Rangers regained the lead less than ten minutes later, Amin Abaradan had a shot blocked on the right side of the box with Liam Burt latching on to the rebound to skip past a defender, his close range shot was blocked by the keeper the the ball ricocheted back of the Rangers player and into the net.

Inverness replied with an attack on the left, when the cross came in it was headed back across goal where the attempted shot was weak and Kyle Bradley cleared. With ten minutes remaining Unsere Mouanda passed to Jamie Barjones who played it out to Amin Abaradan wide on the left. He laid the ball back to Rayn Sinnamon who’s initial shot was blocked, but his volley from the rebound had the keeper at full stretch to tip over.

Within a minute a Jamie Barjonas pass sent Andy Dallas racing clear as he broke into the penalty area the keeper came from his line to make the block.
