In a game arranged to provide game time for the extended Under 20 squad a four goal blitz in the opening quarter-hour ensured Rangers won the game.

On four minutes Max Ashmore’s pass sent Amin Abaradan through on goal and he was tripped on the edge of the box. The free-kick was right of centre and Max Ashmore placed a low shot into the far bottom corner. Rangers doubled their lead seven minutes later and it was a solo effort from Jordan Gibson, showing great skill to dribble through the centre of the Rovers defence and dink the ball past the keeper.

Just before the quarter-hour mark Aidan Wilson sent Serge Atakayi down the right, he went past the full back and cut the ball back to Max Ashmore on the edge of the box  who passed the ball to Sam Jamieson  and his shot slipped under the keeper’s dive low at his left hand post. Within sixty seconds Max Ashmore passed inside the right back sending Lewis White to the byline. his centre was turned past the keeper by a Rovers centre back for an Own Goal.

Rangers missed a great chance to score a fifth just before the break, Serge Akatayi hit the byline on the left before cutting back on the defender, he picked out Max Ashmore arriving on the penalty spot but he blazed his shot over.

Rangers had an early chance in the second half with Serge Akatayi attacking down the right and leave two defenders in his wake as he hit the byline, when he cut the ball back to Max Ashmore a goal looked certain be he shot straight at the keeper from around eight yards. The visitors pulled a goal back on the hour, the move started down the right and when the ball was played inside a one-two on the edge of the box sent their attacker through to shoot past Brian Kinnear.

As the final quarter-hour approached Rangers missed another great chance, Ursene Mouanda’s pass sent Amin Abaradan clear, he continued deep into the penalty area but shot straight at the advancing keeper.
