Lambs ease past Rangers for another three points

FT: 0    4 Tamworth

10 March 2007

Tamworth, on the back of two good wins and a leapfrog off the bottom of the table, made the short journey to Martson Road for the local derby tie against Rangers with a fully fit and available squad.
Mills had initially kept faith in the same starting eleven that had defeated Aldershot 2-0 in midweek but Taiwo Atieno returning from suspension, took the place of Matt Williams prior to kick off. But there was no room for Kyle Storer in the squad of 16.

A win for the Lambs and results going their way in the league would see Tamworth escape the drop zone for the first time since October.
Stafford, on the back of six home defeats but a good point at league leaders Dagenham, did ‘a Tamworth’ by treating the game as an away fixture – travelling to the game by coach as The Lambs did on Tuesday night.

It took a while for both sides to settle into the game although The Lambs had the better chances in the opening encounters with John McGrath trying a right footed shot at Rob Duggan and Daryl Taylor just failing to connect with a cross from the left wing from Emmet Friars.
Atieno won a corner on 9 which, despite poor defensive clearances by the home side, came to nothing and Stafford broke away through Guy Madjo but his low shot went wide of the far post unhindered.
Jake Edwards flicked on a long kick from Jose Veiga for Taylor on 13 but Atieno was beaten to his header by the Stafford defence from the resultant right wing cross.
Atieno then opened the scoring on 13 with his 10th of the season via a right footed shot from 6 yards after Craig McAughtrie failed to deal with a long throw into the area and the last minute change to the starting eleven paid dividends. (1-0)
Jake Edwards won a free kick on the right on 20 which McGrath struck well, but his effort went over the join of bar and far post.
It was 2-0 on 24 when McGrath’s freekick was hooked back into the box by Simon Weaver and after being totally missed by the home defence, Atieno received the ball unmarked at the far post to slot home with relative ease for number 11.

Stafford made a tactical change on with Neil Grayson coming on as they moved to three up front immediately after the second goal and tried to push at Tamworth but to no avail.
Atieno almost bagged his hat-trick on 36 but was denied by the outstretched hand of Duggan as the ball looked to be floating into the far corner from his left wing curling effort.
Tamworth were by now looking the far better of the two sides and forced another corner on 43 which Jake Edwards headed home at the near post to make it 3-0.
Atieno again made space for himself on the left against a poor home defence but flashed his shot wide of the far post again in first half stoppage time.

HT: 3-0

Stafford came out of the blocks quickly at the start of the second half and on loan striker David McNiven put a shot over the bar on 59 from outside the area.
Rangers won their first corner of the game on 52 and Wayne Daniel forced a good save out of Veiga with a powerful header – it was Veiga’s first save of the game.
There was definitely more impetus about the home side and they tried hard to keep the ball in the Lambs' half, but Tamworth defended strongly and at three goals to the good were in no hurry to take unnecessary risks.
But it was nothing less than Tamworth deserved when they extended the scoreline to 4-0 on 65 when, from Rikki Bains halfway line free-kick, Atieno’s header was knocked goalwards by Taylor who forced Duggan into a point blank stop and Edwards knocked the ball home into an empty net.
Graeme Law and Atieno linked well to give the former a shooting chance on 84. Law struck his shot from the right of the area and Duggan parried but there was no-one to mop up the loose ball and Stafford cleared.
Atieno came even closer to netting his third but his shot off the outside of the near post from close range after skipping into the Rangers area on 88.
For the first time in a while, there was no need for the 400-odd travelling fans to sweat out added time as their side had performed magnificently
